Welcome to the Workday@Simmons newsletter! We’ll be using this forum, along with our project website (, brown bag lunches, and other in-person meetings to provide updates on our progress. We recognize the importance of broad community engagement and support, so we’re working hard to create cross-campus partnerships that ensure all departments and schools are represented in the decision making process.

What is Workday@Simmons?
Workday@Simmons is a web-based, mobile-ready platform that will centralize and simplify administrative processes at Simmons. We believe that Workday will have a significant positive impact on every faculty and staff member in your role as an employee at the College. Please read on for examples.

Workday provides a modern and robust system that will end our reliance on manually-intensive administrative tools like Kronos, while making it easier for employees to access payroll, time tracking, benefits, and more. It will provide employees with a true self-service portal, and equip managers with the information they need for strategic decision making. Best of all, Workday is available any time from your computer, tablet, or smartphone, making it easier to access your information and do your work.

What are the goals of Workday@Simmons?

  • Transform, modernize, and simplify administrative processes at Simmons in order to improve workflows
  • Ensure data accuracy and transparency
  • Strengthen the College’s position in the higher education marketplace by giving us technical flexibility in a rapidly changing environment
