Volume 4

Dear Colleagues,
This month marked the beginning of the one-year implementation countdown, and I look forward to Workday furthering operational excellence at Wake Forest. Thank you for your involvement to date and your ongoing collaboration. We will continue offering interactive demos and informative tutorials as we look ahead to July 2018.


As Wake Forest counts down the months to the Workday launch, faculty and staff gathered on the Streakin’ Deacon to celebrate. Attendees received an early look at the system, while sharing ideas about how it will make a difference for the University. View highlights »


Following Workday demos on the Streakin’ Deacon and at TechXploration, Wake Forest will offer additional labs in various locations. Watch for broadcast emails and event signage, as labs pop up across campus. These opportunities will enable faculty and staff to view sample dashboards, practice submitting information, see how the automated workflow will simplify everyday processes, and more.


Workday has created a toolkit to help organizations learn about using the new system. The University will post general  videos from this toolkit, as well as content tailored to Wake Forest. Tutorials currently available on the “Learning” section of the website include:

  • “Getting Started”
  • “Report a Benefit Event”
  • “Request Time Off”
  • “Set Up Payment Elections”
  • “View and Print Payslips”
