Important Information regarding Classification and Compensation

Workday HCM & Recruiting Introduction

Workday is used to document and approve classification actions as well as to post positions for recruitment. Access and use of this system is required for creating positions, reclassifications, updates, creating job requisitions, and job/position postings. Workday is “role-based” which grants users access to certain types of information and business processes based upon the roles associated with their position. In order to be granted a specific security role, a request must be made through the Help Desk Ticket system.

For questions specific to the recruitment process, please contact Recruitment Services at  empl@fau.edu.
