Vol. 2 - June 2022
Putting People First
We are just a few weeks into the Architect Stage of the Workday implementation, and we have had many great conversations about ATP with leaders and staff from campuses across the UW System. Hearing your stories reinforces the importance of standardizing our processes within Workday’s best-in-class platform. Partnering with administrative subject matter experts who work in a variety of roles guides our process redesign work. Learning about each of the campuses confirms that we have many similar administrative needs.

You’ll find several examples in this newsletter of how ATP approaches our work from a people-first mindset. I hope you’ll share our June issue with your units and encourage your colleagues to subscribe.

Connections Corner

ATP’s success depends on experienced people from campuses across the UW System. We asked Robyn Bolton, who joined ATP from UW-Stevens Point, why she thinks implementing Workday will bring positive changes to all administrative staff.
"Transforming the business processes, end-to-end, is going to address a lot of challenges and pain points for our end users. I keep them in mind as I work and want to improve their experience."

—Robyn Bolton, General Ledger Design Team Lead
