UW Information Technology

The HRPM Program is the largest administrative effort in the University’s history—impacting over 45,000 employees working across three campuses, medical centers, and off-site facilities.

It includes standardizing our human resources and payroll processes and replacing our 35-year-old, legacy payroll system (known as the Higher Education Payroll Personnel System or HEPPS) and its many shadow systems with a modern, integrated, cloud-based, software system called Workday.

Workday has the potential to transform the way we work at the University, making us more efficient, streamlined, and employee friendly. Workday:

  • Significantly improves human resource and payroll operations.
  • Strengthens security and compliance.
  • Provides better data for decision making.
  • Reduces duplicative efforts.
  • Ensures the use of up-to-date technology.
