We are very proud that we are not only the first public institution to go live with Workday HCM/Payroll and Financials but the fastest deployment in higher education thus far. Sierra-Cedar’s knowledge of the unique needs of higher education and their shared-performance approach made them the right choice for us.

Georgetown University was the first higher education institution to go live with Workday HCM, Benefits and Payroll. With Workday being relatively new to higher education, it is challenging to find experienced consultants that are able to dig in and produce the best solution using Workday configuration and tools. Sierra-Cedar has set itself apart from the rest by combining its higher education experience, problem solving skills, professionalism and Workday expertise.
