What are you excited about in Workday? Do you have a favorite Workday feature?

Leigh Powell
“I’m excited about the accessibility of data. Banner stores a lot of information but those that need it can’t always get to it. My favorite feature is that it’s so mobile friendly. This especially will be advantageous when we launch Workday Student.”

Tierney Jackson
“I’m excited that it’s an easy-to-navigate system that will centralize many of our everyday tasks onto a unified platform. One of my favorite features is Workday’s fresh, modern design. I am particularly fond of the cloud motif that can be found in various areas of the system and the neat responsive icons (Worklets) we will have on our home screens.”
