introducing Suffolk County Human Resources Management System (HRMS)

Welcome to Workday for Suffolk County Employees.

As a Suffolk County employee, Workday will allow you to view your own information, review your time and attendance, update personal information, review your compensation, review and edit your benefits as well as perform many additional self-service tasks.

Due to unique scheduling requirements for some employees in the Police Department, Sheriff’s Department and FRES, the County will also deploy UKG, an advanced scheduling, time and attendance system.

In Workday, employees have the ability to:

  • Make changes to your address
  • Update your Bank Account Information
  • Update Personal Information
  • Update or change benefit elections
  • Review and update income tax withholding for federal and state taxes
  • View payslips and W-2s
  • Request time off
  • Review absence balances
  • Review time and attendance

Employee Training

As we approach go-live for Workday and UKG, employees will have access to employee self-service (ESS) materials which will include job aids as well as videos that identify the step-by-step process for completing all transactions and tasks. As part of this material, there will be a “Welcome to Workday" video that all employees will be required to view before go-live on December 27, 2021.

Workday for Mobile

The Workday app provides secure, mobile access to your Workday applications on the go.

As an employee, the simple interface will allow you to:

  • Review your pay, view or request time off, submit your timesheet, browse the employee directory in addition to many other tasks.
  • Get push notifications alerts and reminders for time and attendance, important updates, and approvals.
  • Immediately take action right from the app.

Employee Applications in Workday:

When logging into Workday, all employees will arrive at the home page. Along with the Inbox and Notifications, you will have access to several icons called “Applications”. Each Application gives you easy access to tasks and information you use regularly.
