One factor in Metropolitan State University of Denver’s decision to switch to Workday is that the program can improve not only the way business is conducted but how employees work. Workday makes it easier to take control of personal information and manage a multitude of job-related tasks. 

Self-Service functions 

Before the switch becomes permanent, employees have a chance to see firsthand how easy Workday will be to use and navigate through the Employee Self-Service and Manager Self-Service demonstrations that are now available. 

Visit the videos and demos folder in the Workday Transformation Team to access the Workday ESS demo and Workday MSS demo. Below are a few highlights of Workday’s self-service functionality. Employee Self-Service will allow employees to: 

  • Update personal information, such as preferred name, gender identity, marital status, home address and more. 
  • View payroll-related documents, such as pay slips (currently called pay stubs) and tax documents. 
  • Manage direct-deposit information and tax withholdings. 
  • Request time off and check leave balances (and track approval status). 
  • Look up colleagues’ work information, making it easier to connect with peers. 
  • Apply for new positions and keep track of career goals.
