  2. Name any two types of training offerings that will be available to users across Grounds at the end of October. Instructor-led courses (classroom or web conference), eLearning, open labs, job aids, on-demand videos, concept aids.
     
  3. What is Sue most excited about when using Workday to apply for a job at UVA? Drag-and-drop functionality to upload a resume and the subsequent auto-fill of data.

As usual, we chose three winners at random from all the correct submissions.

Thanks to everyone who has participated over the past four weeks!

Your enthusiasm was obvious, but we’re also glad to see so many people engaged in learning about Workday in our run-up to launch in January. Training and learning materials will augment the knowledge you’ve already acquired and should assure a smooth transition to the new system. Watch the blog, email, and Twitter for frequent updates as go-live approaches.
