Workday for Faculty

Important to Know

Workday launched on December 16, 2020.

All faculty are encouraged to review the Training Essentials for Employees to learn to perform essential tasks related to their pay, benefits, and personal information.

Faculty and staff must use Workday to manage personal employee information, access payslips and tax documents dated Jan. 1, 2021 and onward. Payslips and tax documents dated prior to Jan. 1, 2021 can be found on WebPBS.

Faculty who manage others can find a list of trainings on the Training Essentials for Managers page.
