Workday is launching January 7, 2019!

Improved service and client experience is at the forefront of the Workday implementation at Waterloo; with simple, electronic Human Resources (HR) transactions that put control in the hands of managers and employees.

What will change for me on January 7th?

Workday will provide more self-service options and allow all employees to manage and view their vacation days, benefit eligibility, personal information, and much more.
