In early 2022, Suncor will implement Workday, a new HR system that will simplify and standardize common HR-related tasks, making it easier to view your pay statements, book time off, view your work schedule, update your personal information and more.
Benefits of using Workday
Workday is intuitive and easy to use, like your favourite website or online banking app. You’ll be able to quickly navigate around to do what you need to do.
Workday is mobile and accessible in multiple ways (web and app). You can access Workday from any computer browser or from your personal device for easy access – and it’s off the Cisco AnyConnect VPN. Note: You will need your Suncor credentials and multi-factor authentication to use Workday.
View your pay in the Workday app. Workday gives flexibility to view your pay statement via desktop, web browser or mobile app on your personal device. Your pay statement will also look different in Workday. You’ll also have the option to deposit portions of your pay into two bank accounts for Canadian employees; no change for US employees.
Paper pay statements will no longer be mailed to active employees when Workday goes live in 2022. If you have a reason to continue receiving a paper pay statement, contact the Employee Centre after go-live (not before). Pay statements will no longer be mailed out unless you’re on leave, retired or have left Suncor.
View and manage your time in Workday. Using the Workday mobile app, you can easily view your schedule and vacation hours (accrued vacation less taken hours and includes deferred vacation as well) without accessing the VPN or a Suncor computer. You will continue to enter your hours (if you do so today) quickly and easily in Workday for leader approval.
Your vacation time will look different. You’ll see earned hours instead of your full vacation allotment. However, don’t worry; you can book and take vacation as you always have. And you can submit your vacation requests for approval just as you do today, whether you do it yourself, through your leader or through a time administrator.
Manage changes to your benefits in one place. Workday will replace the Sun Life app in 2022, so updating details related to your benefits and enrolling in benefits will be in one application. More information will be shared closer to the 2022 benefits enrollment period.
How to get ready for Workday
Explore and learn about Workday when and as you need it. Workday’s intuitive interface makes it easy for you to quickly learn how to perform common tasks. Learning how to use Workday is entirely up to you; you can explore the app when we go live or access resources before or after go-live to learn how to perform basic tasks like viewing your pay statement, updating personal information, checking your vacation balances, and more.
Learning the basics of Workday takes less than 60 minutes and you can do this whenever and wherever you want, even from the comfort of your home, before go-live or after.
Coming soon: Below will be the basic Workday resources for you to explore when and as you need them. No login credentials will be required.
