GMS News

On June 30, 2014 we will be live with GMS Financials to coincide with the start of the fiscal year.  Click here for an update on the implementation project to include system progress, training and timeline.

The Onboarding landing page has been enhanced with the following:

  • Newly hired faculty members will now receive a "Faculty Handbook" to review and acknowledge in a similar way to how non faculty members review an "Employee Handbook".
  • A new announcement worklet will display I-9 and state / local tax form reminders, as well as a link to an on-boarding job aid to assist new employees should they require assistance.

New employees will receive an email notification on their first day of work directing them to sign up for Benefits Orientation. They will also receive reminders to enroll in benefits after 30 and 45 days of employment, if they have not yet done so. As an employee approaches 60 days of employment without enrolling in benefits, their Manager and HR Contact will be notified.

GMS Logo Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the new GMS!

The visual redesign for GMS was successfully rolled this past weekend as part of the Workday 22 update.  Starting today when you log into GMS, the new look and feel will appear cleaner and will be easier to navigate so that you can better find what you need, when you need it.

Why did we make these changes?

Workday is constantly evolving to improve the user experience just like many other applications and consumer websites like Facebook, Amazon and Linked In. They created a design that is simpler, easier to navigate and faster to ensure that they’re the leader in enterprise usability.

What changed?

GMS has a new coat of paint.  All pages have been updated in styling & coloring along with some simplifications of navigation and Self-Service transactions.

Is anything staying the same?

While certain items have a new look and feel on your computer screen, the steps and approvals within each business process have not changed.

Haven’t attended training?

We still have classes scheduled this week so don’t wait - click here to sign up for a lecture or webinar.  Online training materials are also available at:

We are excited about these enhancements and improvements to the user experience.

Thank you for your attentiveness regarding this change.
