Workday Team Lets Loose During 24 Celebration

As the Workday project continues to progress forward further into the End-to-End Testing phase, the Organizational Change Management (OCM) team thought it would be a good idea to reward those who have been working diligently on the project for the last year, especially those heavily engaged in the current testing.

So, Sarah Persinger, the OCM Lead for the project, designed the "Workday 24 Celebration". On Thursday, January 24, beginning at 2:40 p.m., around 60 or so project members gathered to relax, socialize, and have fun as a reward for their tireless contributions. Many of the Executive Sponsors, Steering Committee members, project leads, testers, and even the Project Manager (Kent Covert), gathered in the Marcum Conference Center to partake in a series of 24 activity stations.

Group of cookies with the Workday logo imprinted on themActivities ranged from arts and crafts, stretching, board games, massage chairs, and a visit from a pair of therapy dogs. Refreshments were provided, including the world-famous Miami Workday cookies.

End-to-End testing will continue into the first week of March.
