The Employee Management section has moved - Access here!

The new HR-APO Knowledge Base was built with your needs in mind, this new platform allows HR and APO to share regularly updated content specifically tailored to employees. The KB currently contains Workday-related documentation, APO-related procedures and 2021 Annual Compensation Review documents. 

Supervisors, Workday Heavy Users and HR/Academic Affairs representatives are being granted advance access. Between now and the all-staff launch, employees without advance access can continue to consult the Workday Employee Self-Service job aids on the R2R website and/or contact hr.hr [at] mcgill.ca (HR) or academic.personnel [at] mcgill.ca (APO) as usual.
