Workday ERP Project

The University of Akron is excited to announce our partnership with Workday and Avaap on our digital transformation with Workday HCM, Workday Finance, and Workday Student! More information is available at the project website.

Organizational Analysis 

The University of Akron is conducting a comprehensive organizational analysis. This initiative is a collaborative effort between the University Office's of Human Resources and Avaap, an Ohio-based consulting firm with expertise in human resources and Workday implementations. The project includes an analysis of our job architecture and will help us ensure the classification specification for each position accurately reflects the roles and contributions of those employees and helps us identify areas where similar duties are being performed by different positions. These efforts will also assist in developing clear paths for career progression and growth opportunities at the University. The analysis will ultimately support the comprehensive University compensation study, across all administrative positions. Project details and updates are available on the project website.

New Employee Onboarding Information and Online New Faculty Orientation Available

The Department of Human Resources has recently created a New Employee Onboarding page to include a comprehensive and easy to navigate list of resources for new employees. If you have been recently hired, this page will be an excellent source of information to guide you through your first weeks as a Zip at The University of Akron! 

Additionally, we have collaborated with the Office of Academic Affairs to develop an online New Faculty Orientation for both full and part-time faculty in Brightspace. The orientation materials contain essential information to assist new faculty and provide details important to teaching success; including access to many resources on campus. Please visit the New Employee Onboarding page to access this orientation.
