Workday Project Shifts Focus to Finance

In January, Saint Louis University successfully rolled out human resources and payroll processes in SLU’s new modern, cloud-based administrative system, Workday.

Now, SLU is focused on replacing the University’s current Banner financial system with Workday Financials, which is set to launch July 1. 

Key goals of the transition include:
