About Workday SKO.

Who should attend Workday SKO?

Workday SKO is for senior practice leaders, alliance leaders, CEOs, heads of sales, and industry and business development leaders at select partner firms.

The Workday Global Workplace Safety team is closely monitoring the evolving state of COVID-19 in alignment with the CDC and local restrictions to ensure the health and safety of our employees and partners. 


At this time, these protocols are in place:

  • COVID-19 vaccinations are not required.
  • Testing is not required regardless of vaccination status. However, each attendee is responsible for reviewing and following the entry and exit requirements of their home country.
  • Attendees who are sick should not attend. 

While not required, masks will be available at the event, along with hand-sanitizing stations and enhanced cleaning. 

If you feel sick and/or test positive for COVID-19 while at Workday SKO, please isolate yourself. We will have a limited supply of COVID-19 tests available; please email safety@workday.com to request one. If you test positive, we recommend that you adhere to the current CDC quarantine and isolation guidelines. Additionally, please follow any COVID-19 policies set forth by your employer.
