Time Worked:

Academics do not need to log time worked in Workday. Academic “managers,” which is defined as anyone with a direct report, will be asked to approve time worked submissions for employees who report to them, if applicable. Academic “managers” will have the option to delegate this responsibility to a unit-based Timekeeper if they so choose.

Time Off:

Academics do not need to request time off in Workday. Academic “managers,” which is defined as anyone with a direct report, will be asked to approve time off requests in Workday for employees who report to them, if applicable. However, they will have the option to delegate this responsibility to a unit-based Timekeeper if they so choose.

Benefits:

Eligible Academics will use Workday to elect benefits during open enrollment. You can also update dependents due to life events or change beneficiaries for life insurance directly in the system. When you view your benefits, you’ll be able to see each plan, the plan’s coverage begin date, the deduction begin date, the employee cost, and employer contribution.

Payroll

Anyone who receives a paycheck from the University will be able to view and print pay slips and W-2’s. Workday enables you to manage your payment elections, such as direct deposit accounts. You will be able to elect up to two direct deposit accounts, plus Penn State Federal Credit Union.

Performance Management:

Academic “managers” of full-time staff will conduct performance management activities such as goal setting, mid-year, and end-of-year performance evaluations.
