Vassar Launches Workday Information Management System for Human Resources

As of March 20, 2017 Vassar has begun using Workday as its information management system for human resources (HR), payroll, and benefits. Workday replaces the current Banner system for these purposes, as well as replacing the use by some employees of paper forms to complete timesheets and request time off.

Vassar employees will start using Workday on a rolling basis, based upon their different pay periods and job roles:

  • Time entry

Vassar employees can log into Workday at https://workday.vassar.edu with their standard college computing username and password. Employees who don't have this information must go right away to the CIS Service Desk in the College Center to get set up (9:00am-4:30pm during the break, 9:00am-7:30pm in general).

Training sessions will continue to be held during business hours so employees can use paid time to attend. Schedules are posted in the Training Schedule section of the WorkdayInfo website, where employees can also sign up for sessions. The Training Materials section of the site includes resources for learning about Workday, including guide sheets to read and print out. A Vassar training video can be viewed from the site, and its “Frequently Asked Questions” section has answers on topics that Vassar employees have raised during training sessions.

 

Questions about Workday can be emailed to workday@vassar.edu, and brought to the Service Desk in person or by calling 437-7224.
