Elevating Cougs offers three unique tracks:

Attendees may follow one track, or mix and match sessions across multiple tracks to personalize their experience.

Workday Success Stories

Hear from your WSU peers as they share proven best practices and success stories to help you get the most from Workday.

If you perform tasks in finance, human resources, grants management, or payroll, we encourage you to register for sessions in this track. Mix and match your sessions to dive further into your own area of expertise, or to learn more about unfamiliar Workday functions.

Developing as a Coug

This track focuses on employees’ individual development with an emphasis on “soft skills”.

Sessions in this track offer valuable knowledge and insight for any WSU employee, at any level, regardless of their job duties.

Learn why soft skills are important and three ways for better work days.

Leading as a Coug

Expand your leadership and team development toolbox. 

Sessions in this track are designed for WSU employees who lead others at any level, including managers, supervisors, and department administrators.

If you’re interested in advancing as a leader, or developing your personal leadership skills, you’re invited to explore Leading as a Coug session offerings.
