Finance & Payroll | Workday


Finance functions of Workday include Budget, Core Financials, Expenses, Procurement, Inventory, Grant Management, and Project Management. We won’t know specific changes or impacts until late November after the system has been designed and tested. At a high-level, though, employees can expect to use Workday for the following financial- and payroll-related activities starting March 2023:

  • Entering time
  • Approving time sheets
  • Downloading W-2s
  • Viewing pay stubs
  • Updating direct deposit information
  • Checking vacation and personal leave balances
