Workday changes as of April 1st

Friday, March 29, 2019

Since the launch of Workday, we have continued to improve our processes and the support we provide to enhance your experience. Here are some changes that will be effective April 1st:

  1. Workday will be updated so that approvals go to the designated Signing Authority from Unit 4 rather than the Cost Centre Manager. If there is no Signing Authority, then the Responsible Person will be the approver. If a business process was initiated prior to April 1st, then the approval will still be directed to the Cost Centre Manager. Please contact hrhelp@uwaterloo.caor ext. 35935 for any questions.
  2. Workday support will transition to our ongoing HR support model. Please see the table below for details.
