Academic Personnel


Workday and the Integrated Service Center (ISC)

Workday is the centralized, cloud-based software program the UW uses to manage human resources, time-tracking, payroll, benefits processes across the University, the Medical Centers* and other off-site facilities. The Integrated Service Center (ISC) works closely with UW-HR, Academic Personnel, UW-IT, other central business units, University leadership, departments and HR administrators to support faculty, staff and students with their payroll/HR-impacting information in Workday. Visit the ISC website to access Workday, view instructional videos and user guides, or to contact ISC representatives.

*Please note: The Medical Centers continue to use Kronos for time-tracking and payroll.
