Thank you to everyone who participated in the Ufirst Technology and Process Preview and Feedback Academic Session on Thursday, February 22 at Newcomb Hall. The event was a great success due to your contribution and feedback!
The Academic Division Session included an overview of Workday, featuring Workday basics, life events, managing my team, dashboards and reporting, and learning management. There were also three breakout sessions, each with a focus on the recruiting and onboarding processes for staff, faculty and professional research staff, and students.
Pat Hogan, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, kicked off the event, saying, “I’m glad to be here with all of you today. Great to look out and see a room full of people who are excited about where we are with Ufirst and who are eager to see what’s coming!”
Sean Jackson, Ufirst Executive Director, gave out Amazon Fire tablets to six lucky winners and participants mingled with the UVA HR leadership team over coffee.
