Workday is the core of human capital management (HCM) at UNLV. Here are just a few of the HCM business processes that take place inside Workday:

  • Hire new employees and rehire terminated workers
  • Create and manage search committees
  • Create a job requisition
  • Edit an existing position or job
  • Initiate a job transfer, promotion, demotion, or location change
  • Initiate an employee termination

For HCM business process support, please contact the human resources department.

If you are having trouble finding what you need, NSHE provides a glossary to define various Workday terms.
