New cloud-based payroll system coming to UW in June

HR/Payroll Modernization Program

In June, the UW’s antiquated, 35-year-old payroll software system will be replaced by Workday, a modern, easy-to-use, cloud-based software system.

With this change, the UW’s more than 45,000 employees will have streamlined access for routine personnel items such as earning statements and leave balances and to make personal information updates like contact information, direct deposits selections and W-2 withholdings.

Workday offers:

  • A single, unified system for employee self-service, online benefits enrollment and reporting. Medical center staff will continue to use Kronos for timekeeping
  • The ability to direct deposit pay into three separate bank accounts
  • The ability to see projected time off “balance as of” dates, making for easier planning

Training on how to use Workday begins in May across the university. Individuals will be invited to register for training classes.
