Workday Employee Training

It’s time to “prepare for landing” as Workday’s Operation Take Flight approaches our Go Live date of October 5!  

We are excited about the improvements and efficiencies that Workday will bring to your employee experience at NWACC. To ensure your successful transition to Workday, we are providing information and resources to assist you.

Workday improves the employee experience by replacing several paper-based processes with automated workflows and provides real-time visibility into the status of processes.  

Training is available in multiple formats to ensure everyone has the support they need when they need it. 

  • Live and recorded training will be available for Employees before and after Go Live, October 5, 2020. The training is designed to introduce you to Workday so that you are familiar with basic concepts and navigation for getting started.
  • Job Aids will be available for key processes once Workday is live. A Job Aid provides step-by-step directions for completing a process. Additionally, brief video tutorials will be available for the Enter Time, Spend Authorization, and Expense Report processes.  
  • In the month of October and November, Employee Help Labs (Eagle Lounge) will be available to provide live assistance with using Workday and processing transactions.
