We’re Getting A New HR/Payroll System

The new Human Resources/Payroll (HR/P) system, Workday, is scheduled to go live here at the University of Washington in June.

The current systems we use are very fragile and out of date at 35-years-old. Workday is a new system built with extensive input from campus that offers many benefits to staff, faculty, and student workers, including:

  • More detailed data for strategic planning and decision-making.
  • Better and more consistent employee experiences (e.g., onboarding, benefits enrollment, arranging leave).
  • Increased effectiveness at the administrative level to help support mission-critical work by faculty, researchers, and students.
  • Modern, intuitive, easy-to-use platform.

A qualified team of people are working behind the scenes to ensure everyone on campus is ready for Workday this summer – from 45 readiness teams to extensive testing and through a variety of training materials and work sessions.
