Technology on the Leading Edge

The University of Tampa uses Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Payroll to streamline all faculty, staff and student employee HR and payroll processes. Workday is an innovative, internationally-renowned cloud solution used by numerous Fortune 500 companies and prestigious institutions such as Yale, Brown and Georgetown University.

UT is among the first universities and colleges in the country to adopt Workday. Accessing Workday is simple and begins by logging into Okta, an identity management solution. After logging into Okta, the user can access his or her HR and payroll information by clicking on the Workday icon. Visit the Workday Wiki for instructions, videos, and useful links for how to access Workday via Okta, record your time worked, submit time off requests, and much more.
