Go Live Date Adjustment

As you are aware, Goucher College is investing in WorkDay, a cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning system for HCM, Finance, Payroll and Planning to modernize critical business systems and streamline existing processes and support.

The go-live date for Phase I of the WorkDay Platform project has been moved to March 18, 2023 beginning with time entry, followed by HCM, Payroll, and Financial business processes being phased in through April 1,2023. This adjustment will ensure that impacted units are able to balance workloads with other priorities and are thoroughly prepared for the transition. The implementation team will continue to develop and share training resources, enhance system data, and ensure there is appropriate knowledge transfer for key business needs. A detailed go live plan will be shared closer to the March timeframe.

Through the continued effort of those involved in this project, we have recently completed customer confirmation sessions, initial testing, and continue to meet with the Change Action Network (CAN) to receive feedback on the project. These updates to our systems and processes will help alleviate inefficiencies, increase job satisfaction, and allow employees to spend more of their time on work that advances the mission of the College and is, therefore, more meaningful and satisfying.
