March 31, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — WorkLion, Penn State’s personalized access point for all things human resources, will launch this summer. All Penn State employees — including faculty, staff, technical service, wage and student employees — will use WorkLion to access a searchable database of information related to employment at Penn State (the HR knowledge base), and a tool that allows employees to ask questions of Human Resources personnel (inquiry management tool); the Learning Resource Network, a system designed to help employees more easily find, register and track professional development courses; and the University’s new cloud-based HR and payroll system, called Workday.

To learn more about the components of WorkLion and the Workday software, employees are invited to join virtual information sessions on April 4.

Join a virtual session by visiting at the designated time or by registering in the Learning Resource Network.

The Human Resources Business Process Transformation (HRBPT) — Penn State's initiative to create a more agile, self-service HR model — includes both the creation of WorkLion and the University’s new cloud-based HR and payroll system, Workday.

An intuitive and user-friendly software, Workday will empower employees to view and manage their personal data when the system launches later this year. Employees across the University will access Workday for tasks ranging from enrolling in and maintaining benefits, entering time worked, scheduling time off, and updating contact information, to maintaining pay elections (such as direct deposit accounts information) and setting performance management goals. All Penn State employees will use elements of Workday.
