The MyWorkday project will touch all areas of VUMC; Change Network of employees begins its work

Mar. 4, 2022, 11:54 AM

MyWorkday is VUMC’s enterprise-wide project to replace existing business systems and processes.

The MyWorkday project at VUMC involves the implementation of  two new cloud-based systems, Workday and Tecsys. Taken together, this extensive transition of dozens of VUMC business systems set to occur later this year took a major step forward in late February with the first meeting of the project’s Change Network departmental readiness leads.

This network will be made up of hundreds of employees from all areas of VUMC. There are various roles within the Change Network, such as department readiness leads, change agents, and super users, all of whom will at different stages of the implementation learn about MyWorkday and pass information and support to others in their work areas.

More than 450 people attended the initial virtual Change Network meeting on Feb. 23. Attendees heard from several members of the leadership group spearheading the implementation of MyWorkday at VUMC.

Adopting Workday and Tecsys allows VUMC to update legacy systems that administrative departments across the Medical Center rely on each day as a basis of their operations and record keeping. Large departments such as Finance, Supply Chain, Human Resources, and Research and Grants have software systems that need modernization. Workday and Tecsys offer new cloud-based tools that will allow people and departments across VUMC to collaborate in a seamless manner.

While the MyWorkday project will touch in some way every employee of the Medical Center, a key point the group heard was that information and training would be available to make sure that employees are knowledgeable and prepared for the changes.

In addition to the Change Network,  information will be communicated in the form of the MyWorkday website, emails, town halls, training sessions and super users in each department to help with the transition.

The next Change Network meeting is set for March 31.
