Since September 2015, Workday has changed the way Suffolk University conducts business by automating, streamlining, and standardizing current business processes in Human Resources and Payroll.

In September 2015, Suffolk launched Workday to manage our business practices for Human Resources and Payroll. Workday is a cloud-based software application that enables online access for employees and managers, transforming how we work in areas like payroll, benefits, reporting time, and requesting time off.

The Suffolk 2025 Strategic Plan calls for investments in infrastructure, including creating a forward-looking technology environment to support the next generation of teaching, learning, research and scholarship. Much of that initiative will be addressed by expanding our implementation of Workday.

To help us meet that goal, we‘re expanding Workday to automate and streamline our financial practices and procedures. That process began in 2019, and will be completed in March, 2021.

ITS is working with senior management and teams across the University to define and develop the business processes that will provide integrated, accessible, management tools in a secure online environment.

Over time, additional expansions will add new functionality.

First-Time Users

For security reasons, Suffolk requires a second method of validation to confirm your identity when you log into Workday to ensure you're the one accessing your data.

When you log in, you will be prompted to enroll in Two-Factor Authentication and add a second device such as your smartphone, desk phone, or tablet. This step-by-step process is easy.
