Testing brings human resources system one step closer to launch

With the go-live date of July 1 drawing closer, work continues behind the scenes to ready Brock’s new human resources system for its launch.

The team behind the initiative, known as Project Mosaic, spent February and March testing more than 4,500 scenarios on the new cloud-based system, which is meant to seamlessly combine Brock’s current Workday Finance, and upcoming Workday Human Resources systems.

The tested scenarios focused on end-to-end processes, security roles, and data integrity; all to ensure the flow through to final payroll will be successful, a step considered of key importance during this exercise.

In April, 170 staff and faculty members volunteered to attend User Acceptance Testing (UAT). UAT is providing a hands-on opportunity for staff and faculty members to be a part of the overall testing process, to validate, from their unique perspectives, whether the system performs as intended, and how well it supports people in their jobs.

Brock’s Department of Human Resources extends its gratitude to those who took the time to test and validate data, and provide valuable feedback on the new system. All of those who tested will be entered into a draw for a Project Mosaic prize.

Throughout the month of June, training sessions will be offered to the Brock community in key areas such as recruiting, entering time, and requesting time-off. Details on training registration will be available in May.

Faculty and staff members are asked to watch for announcements over the next two months for important details on the new Workday Human Resources system.
