What is Workday?

Benefits for University and Wexner Medical Center Leadership

Through modern systems and more efficient processes, the Enterprise Project will help you focus your work day on what matters most to you. For university and Wexner Medical Center leaders, that means integrating administrative data into a single system, which will help you make important business decisions.

Streamlined Processes

A single system for finance, HR, payroll and student information, called Workday, ensures all of your students, faculty and staff are positioned for success. In short, all Buckeyes will have consistent, high-quality administrative experiences that reinforce Ohio State’s commitment to operational excellence.

Enabling Mission-Driven Work

Workday will enable more concentrated efforts in executing the institution’s Time and Change strategic plan and driving missions: teaching and learning, research, service and patient care -- and less on manual, administrative tasks. 

Accurate, Accessible Data

Robust reporting and analytics features will assist university leadership in making sound business decisions. The reliable data within the system increases shared knowledge, enhancing collaboration and alignment across teams.
