Training & Resources

The Penn State community has many options when it comes to learning about Workday, including step-by-step job aids, interactive training modules, videos, and more. We encourage you to leverage these tools to make your Workday experience easier and more effective.

Knowledge Base

The WorkLion portal contains a searchable knowledge base for answers to HR-related questions, as well as step-by-step job aids for using Workday. 

Training Courses

Interactive training modules for key functions of the Workday system are available through Penn State's Learning Resource Network (LRN).

We recommend that you start with Welcome to WorkLion and Workday - this module provides employees with an overview of Penn State's Human Resources portal and some of the common tasks that you can accomplish in Workday. This module was designed for new employees but is also an excellent resource for current employees wanting a refresher on the WorkLion portal and the Workday system.

The Oganizations and Roles in Workday module describes how organizations and roles interact to make up the general Workday structure. While the Workday Security Team manages role acces, they require certain information in role requests in order to provide the correct access. This training aims to help those requesting roles find the relevant information in the system.
