HR, Payroll, Finance- Modernization Initiative. July 23 & 24
WSU is continuing to build an understanding of our HR, Payroll, and Finance needs as part of the early assessment and planning phase of the business modernization initiative which we began last fall. As part of that on-going effort, on July 23, 2015 and July 24, 2015, WSU will host a demonstration of the HR and Payroll software currently being implemented at the University of Washington. This demonstration will provide much needed opportunity for employees, system wide, to see an example of a modern HR/Payroll system, and how a new system could help WSU modernization and become more effective and efficient in the way we support the growing academic and research enterprise.  The demonstration will be available on video conference for all urban campus locations. All interested employees are encouraged to attend.
