Interfolio and Workday@Penn Updates

The University is currently undergoing a Human Capital Management (HCM) Transformation Initiative. This University-wide effort will simplify and standardize HR-related processes through the Penn Employee Solution Center (launched earlier this year) and the implementation of Workday. Workday will take the place of Payroll, PennWorks, and PeopleAdmin (click here for more information about the Workday transition).  Workday will go live on July 1, 2019.

In tandem with this effort, the Office of the Provost has partnered with Interfolio to standardize and streamline faculty searches and academic review processes such as appointments, reappointments, and promotions (click here for more information about the introduction of Interfolio). In July, 2019, we will be rolling out two new platforms:

  • Faculty Search, to assist with the creation of faculty ads, candidate applications, applicant review, and affirmative action compliance; and
  • Review, Promotion, Tenure, to manage faculty appointments, reappointments, and promotions at all ranks.

We will be sending regular email updates about both Interfolio and Workday, including actions that need to be completed by each department to prepare for the transition. Those updates and other important information can be found here.
