As shared in a recent Early Bird article, Metropolitan State University of Denver is reimagining, transforming and simplifying how work gets done at the University by implementing a comprehensive, modern system called Workday. Workday will bring together a lot of human-resources and finance functionality into one single system, making it easier for all employees to conduct work.

Here are some resources available to keep you informed throughout this important project:

  • Early Bird articles — As we head toward “go-live” in early 2023, the Workday project team will communicate regularly through the Early Bird, keeping you updated on important need-to-know Workday information. Watch for monthly project updates and timely information about training opportunities and more. Read the most recent Early Bird article on Workday.
  • Change Agent Network — The Change Agent Network will champion Workday communication and training and will support employee engagement and adoption. Change Agents from across the University have been identified and will begin engaging their departments soon to make sure you are kept in the loop about Workday — watch for information from your Workday Change Agents soon.
  • Your supervisor or manager — If you’re interested in role-specific Workday information, we recommend chatting with your manager. Managers have a wealth of knowledge, especially if the information you seek is about your day-to-day work and/or department. All managers will receive important updates about how the transition to Workday will affect their departments. They also can get additional information from the Workday project team if needed.
  • The Workday webpage — This helpful resource is a one-stop shop for information about Workday. Here, you’ll find the latest news about the project, including an informative video message from our project sponsors.
  • Frequently Asked Questions — If you have a question about Workday, we’ve got an answer. Check out the Workday FAQs on the Workday webpage, where you’ll find commonly asked questions about the project and the Workday system. The webpage will frequently be updated with more questions, so keep checking back.
  • Workday Transformation Team — This group is open to all MSU Denver employees and is where you can read about the Workday project and access downloadable versions of resources such as the Workday FAQ document. Other resources will also be available here when ready, such as a key-terminology glossary, training information and job aids. Simply visit the Workday Transformation Team to join and gain access to all these resources. If you already have Teams open when using this link, you may need to refresh or restart the program to see the Workday Transformation Team in your list of teams.

MSU Denver is committed to keeping you informed about and engaged in the transition to Workday by providing the resources you need when you need them. This is an exciting time to be a Roadrunner as we streamline, simplify and reshape our workdays with Workday, so stay tuned.
