Employee Self-Service: How Workday Will Benefit You

Workday@Simmons is a web-based platform that manages all human resource functions, including payroll, time tracking, and benefits. And it's coming next year!

Over the next year, Talent and Human Capital Strategy, Payroll, and Technology will work closely to implement Phase I of the project, focused on the Human Capital Management and Payroll systems.

The primary goal of Phase I is to provide a fully functional employee self-service platform, which will have a significant positive impact on how all employees—including faculty, staff, and student workers—access information.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Self-service via a single interface that centralizes all employee information. Today, we use multiple systems such as Kronos, Connection, and iPay to access information. With the completion of Phase I, we will no longer use Kronos to enter and track hours worked. This includes moving all student employee time tracking online!
  • Elimination of printed forms. You'll be able to enroll in benefits online and track changes. You can view pay stubs with one click, view and update contact information, make address changes, alter your W4 elections, update direct deposit information, and more online.
  • Mobile access via the web and apps. You will no longer need access to various systems—like Connection, Kronos, and iPay—to see your information. Workday is available anywhere you have an Internet connection.
  • Less frustration and fewer errors as a result of creating a one-stop location where employees and managers can access and update information.

We'll be adding additional features and benefits to the project website and highlighting them in future newsletters, so be sure to check back to find out more about how Workday@Simmons will improve your work day.
