Workday is Coming Soon
Project Stages 2022-2024

2022 Project Recap

The Workday Platform project is successfully progressing since being initiated in March 2022. 

The project is driven by 20+ teams, with each team being led by highly committed staff from the Business and Finance Office, Human Resources / Total Rewards, and Information Technology. 

Teams conducted a review of current GVSU business processes and have been underway designing GVSU’s future state based on the outcomes of that review. 

Change management efforts included the website launch, campus-wide announcements, change readiness assessments, and the creation of the Change Agent Network.

As of December 2022

workday 29 percent complete for January 2024 go-live

Key Decisions Made

Expense/Procurement Cards: GVSU will utilize separate credit cards for individual travel/expense items and for procurement.

Expense Reporting: Concur will be replaced by Workday for expense reporting.

Time Clocks: Physical time clocks will be replaced with computer kiosks and mobile time entry.


Upcoming Activity

The next milestone is to complete 85% of the Workday configuration by March 2023 in order to commence Unit Testing. Detailed plans are being created for communications, training, testing, and post-project support.

Analysis is underway to determine deployment dates for Workday products that are in scope during the 'Rolling Adoption' period following the January Go-Live. These products include: Adaptive Planning, Help, Journeys, Learning, People Analytics, and PRISM.
