Fall Preview and Feedback Sessions


In September, the Ufirst project team hosted live sessions for faculty, staff, and team members across Grounds. These sessions explored Workday, focusing on Recruiting, Performance Management, and Compensation processes. The feedback gathered is critical to meeting the needs of the University and a successful go-live in July 2018. See the details from the P1 Preview and Feedback sessions below. Thank you for your participation and partnership!

Process Demonstration

•Posting an open position
•Completing a job application

Feedback Themes

•Things I Like: Streamlined hiring process for Faculty and Staff

•Things I’d Like to Have: Delegation authority for chairs  and managers



Learn about session questions and answers specific to Recruiting.



Performance Management

Process Demonstration

•Goal Setting
•Mid-Year Touchpoint
•Feedback Options
•Year-End Appraisal

Feedback Themes

•Things I Like: Ability to provide 360 feedback and revisit goals and change goals throughout year
•Things I Don’t Like: The “to-do” action item for the manager to discuss feedback with the employee is backwards – the discussion should happen before the action item completion
•Things I’d Like to Have: Recommend email notifications being sent to notify for key performance tasks
•Need Clarification: How competencies will be evaluated and incorporated in the goals



Learn about session questions and answers specific to Performance Management.




Process Demonstration

•One Time Payment
•Compensation Change

Feedback Themes

•Things I Like: The Compensation Change process is more streamlined, flexible, and straightforward to use
•Things I Don’t Like: Didn’t see the process for notifying finance to specify correct accounting/PTAEO due to comp changes from different departments
•Things I’d Like to Have: Display compensation alerts outside of pay range to managers
•Need Clarification: The ability to redefine the approval routing, other than manager’s manager



Learn about session questions and answers specific to Compensation.
