About the Workday at Brandeis Project

The Workday@Brandeis Project will bring Brandeis's administrative services in line with its excellence in teaching, research, and practice. In July 2019, the team launched the first phase of the Workday@Brandeis Project, focusing on HR, Payroll, and Finance processes. The transition to Workday provides our University community with real-time reporting, standardized business processes, and optimized administrative functions.



Brandeis has used the administrative software PeopleSoft to manage human resources, payroll, and finance operations since 2002. Due to the unique needs of our administrative business units, PeopleSoft systems were highly customized over the years. These customizations added a layer of complexity to our administrative systems, making system upgrades and modifications challenging and disruptive for our vendors and staff.

Workday offers a different software model, offering configurable frameworks that works with our own data. No coding is required. Workday delivers automated updates to Brandeis twice a year without causing disruption to the University's normal business procedures.

What is Workday?
Workday is used for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). This system manages HR, payroll, and finance business processes. It is designed to minimize reliance on paper and manual workarounds. Workday is modern and web-based and will standardize our HR and payroll process.
Why Workday?
After a yearlong ambitious and inclusive review process, Brandeis has determined that Workday is the best system to meet the University's current and future operating requirements. By choosing Workday, the University will receive numerous benefits not available with traditional, on-premise software applications.
