Twice a year, Workday releases major feature upgrades designed to increase functionality and enhance the user experience. A few exciting changes are in the works with this round of planned updates, scheduled for release over the weekend of March 10. The most noticeable change you’ll see when you log into Workday after the update is a brand new look for the Workday homepage!

The upgrades will help ensure that users of all abilities have a more positive experience accessing and navigating Workday.
