In July of 2018, Wake Forest University went live with Workday HCM, Finance, and Payroll. Soon to follow suit, Adaptive Insights was launched in May of 2019 as the new Budget system. The implementation of Workday unified Finance, Human Resources, and budget into a seamless system that makes it more efficient to complete everyday processes.
The Workday implementation was led by Executive Vice President Hof Milam, along with the dedicated efforts of a Steering Committee, Project Team, and Campus Change Partners.
