As a reminder, the Hiring Pause remains in effect. The college committee will continue to review exceptions requests as appropriate. The transition to Workday will present implications to our day-to-day operations, however, we will continue to partner with leaders and hiring managers to minimize disruptions as much as possible. Recruitment and hiring deadlines will be firm to support a successful transition to Workday.  Feel free to reach out to your respective HR consultant for planning assistance or with questions.
