The HCM/Payroll project is coordinating and supporting the University-wide effort to replace the existing Human Resources and payroll system with Workday, a modern, cloud-based system. Our team has convened an Advisory Group and network of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from across the University to lend their expertise in the configuration and design of Workday. HCM/Payroll is scheduled as Phase I of ASMP, with Financials following as Phase II. Each phase will address communications, user readiness, and training activities to support a smooth transition to the new business processes and systems.
Current Status:

The Workday implementation program is currently undergoing a reset. For more information, please read the article “Update on the ASMP & Workday Reset”
