HR Core Users Explore Workday's Staffing Models

Over 180 HR and payroll professionals have attended virtual sessions introducing Staffing Models, a Workday core concept. The full Workday core concepts series for HR and Payroll is designed to give the audience foundational knowledge of the Workday system. The concepts focus on HR-specific functionality, content the HR community will see and use most often when the first release of Workday is launched in 2020.

Workday’s Staffing Models will help:

  • Determine how jobs are defined and filled.
  • Provide differing degrees of flexibility or control over staffing.
  • Support different staffing goals across the university.

Staffing Models are tied to Workday’s Supervisory Organizations (reporting relationships) because they define the parameters for how Supervisory Organizations are built and managed. This allows for strategic planning to meet the diverse talent needs at the university and medical center.

Ohio State will utilize both Position Management (for faculty and staff) and Job Management (for student employees and intermittent staff) staffing models in Workday's Human Capital Management (HCM) module.
