| Chicago

The Role: As a senior member of our People Technology/HRIS team, the Senior Workday Analyst plays a key role in guiding the design, implementation, maintenance, and support of our core HR system, Workday. You’ll help define the long-term (next 12-18 months) and near-term (next quarter) Workday roadmap by consulting with HR stakeholders to understand needs and priorities, representing what’s possible within the constraints of Workday capabilities, and ultimately designing solutions and translating those solutions to requirements and plans for implementation.

 

With our internal HRIS team distributed geographically, you’ll be the critical link between our HR domain leaders (rewards, talent management, recruiting, etc.) in our Chicago headquarters and our Workday configuration and integration experts located mostly in Asia. And as the “face” of Workday to our Chicago users and stakeholders, you’ll be a first line of local support helping to educate, triage problems, and respond to time-sensitive inquiries.

  • Lead the Workday effort in support of annual HR programs such as performance management, promotions, compensation, and open enrollment, including requirements gathering and documentation, configuration, testing, and implementation.
  • Manage large HRIS projects, including implementation of new functionality and modules as needed.
  • Support development and management of the HRIS roadmap, including maintaining relationships with key stakeholders across HR and the business
  • Research and resolve HRIS problems, unexpected results or process flaws, perform scheduled activities, and recommend solutions or alternate methods to meet requirements.
