Workday launched as Willamette’s new HRIS

by University Communications,

Willamette officially launched Workday as its new Human Resource Information System (HRIS) on July 10. Faculty, staff and student employees have already had the opportunity to log in and explore the many resources available, record hours and request time off. All employees are encouraged to log in to get familiar with the new system, verify personal information and review benefits.

The launch of Workday is the culmination of a multi-year process to update Willamette’s HRIS. Workday replaces JASON as the university’s system of record for human resources and payroll processes. Employees should expect to see notifications directly from Workday (sent from Supervisors are encouraged to log in and review requests for vacations, approvals and other alerts on a daily basis.

Salaried employees remain on a monthly pay calendar. All hourly employees have moved to a biweekly pay schedule, and the 2017 Pay Calendar is available online. This calendar includes a list of pay periods, time submission deadlines and paydays.  

Thank you to everyone who made the transition to Workday a success. Additional FAQs and details are listed below and available online.
