Workforce Administration

A New Way to Manage the Employee Life Cycle

From Step One to Done

Workforce Administration (WFA) is the new way to manage the employee life cycle, from hire to retire, and everything in between. WFA will implement role-based workflows that utilize Onbase as the content management platform. WFA streamlines workflows and creates transparency so managers can track forms and approvals all in one place, making the process more efficient and tranparent.

Once implemented, WFA will allow for single platform submission of hiring and employee administration forms. The successful implementation and adoption of these processes are an essential part of the campus’ initiative to modernize systems and processes and are a foundational part of the overall Human Capital Management (HCM) strategy implemented at UC Merced.
