Arizona State University has launched the Human Capital Management Innovation Project.
This plan involves implementing a cloud-based human capital management system responsive to changing business needs and improving the efficiency of administrative operations.
After an in-depth review, ASU has selected Workday Human Capital Management and Payroll software.
ASU views the project as an opportunity to reimagine its human resources capabilities and processes using an advanced HCM system that supports the university. ASU will begin implementing the project in spring 2023, with an expected launch in spring 2025.
