The Statewide Personnel System (SPS) tool, Workday, automates many of the procedures and practices of your agency’s personnel transactions.
This page contains Job Aids and Videos to assist you in performing various functions in Workday. For day-to-day HR transactions, use the Job Aids found on this page for assistance, NOT the guide used during training. You can also find answers to questions fellow HR staff have asked about
being new to SPS and using Workday for HR.
SPS Workday HR User Groups are held monthly by the DBM Shared Services team. The User Group is your opportunity to learn about enhancements and changes to the Workday tool. Below are the User Group notes from previous meetings.
