State of Iowa Employees,

We are excited to announce the official launch of the Iowa WorkSmart Project, bringing all State government together to implement the Workday Enterprise Resource Planning System. 

Workday is a cloud-based human capital and financial management software solution which will replace two of the State’s current legacy systems - the Human Resources Information System (HRIS) and Integrated Information for Iowa (I/3). This initiative will lead to more effective planning, execution, and analysis of our State resources and operations, as well as greater convenience for State employees. 

The Iowa WorkSmart Team includes employees across State government who will help guide the Workday transition. To help you prepare for Workday, an official website has been created at WorkSmart.iowa.gov

This site will be your one-stop shop for timelines, next steps, training opportunities, upcoming changes, and benefits for you and your organization. Information and resources will be updated regularly, so bookmark WorkSmart.iowa.gov and check back often! 

We look forward to working with you as we unite behind one vision, as one team, with one resource. Please reach out to WorkSmart@iowa.gov with any questions or concerns. 

Thank you,  

Iowa WorkSmart Team
