At this event, you’ll learn why UBC has embarked on a journey to transform its systems and processes and how faculty and staff can expect to benefit. You will also have the opportunity to see what Workday looks like through a series of live demos. We will demo:

  • Time tracking
  • Absences
  • Expenses
  • Procurement

There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

We are also requesting your support to ensure that others in your unit are aware of this opportunity.

About the Integrated Renewal Program

To support UBC’s learning, research and working environment, we need to renew our administrative process and replace aging systems. Our student, HR and finance systems are 25 years old or more, and no longer able to support our dynamic institution and modern workplace. By modernizing and simplifying processes and bringing them into an intuitive integrated system, we will free the UBC community to spend more time on strategic priorities.

We can succeed only through sharing this responsibility, through strong collaboration, and readiness for change. Together, we can build a strong foundation for UBC’s future as we embark on our next century as a leading public university.
