Workday provides Uncommon Schools with a scalable, unified platform for managing its core business operations across HR and finance. Christie Chow, senior systems manager, talks about the challenge of managing multiple systems with high overhead costs and the need to unify and consolidate while the organization was rapidly expanding.
With Workday, Uncommon Schools:
- Combines business functions across HR, finance, planning, and payroll to save time and reduce overhead costs
- Moves from spreadsheets for budgeting and planning to an integrated system that streamlines processes and reduces errors
- Switches from a quarterly payment system to paying teachers and staff as soon as they do additional work, which supports flexible schedules
We want our people to look at the move to Workday as leaving our transactional work behind and moving to transformative work.
