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 a member of your Human Resources Business Team.

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

Reporting and Data

There are various standard Workday reports that users can use to gather specific data. UNLV’s Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) team has also created custom reports that are tailored to UNLV’s business operations.

Organizational Structure

To best determine the flow of business processes and approval, Workday uses organizational structure, which is a university-wide organizational chart that includes every employee. Each unit is responsible for working with our HRIS team to maintain their organizational structure.
