Organization Services

Supervisory Organization Services

Supervisory Organizations (Sup Orgs) are the organizational structure in Workday that connects workers to their manager and to the manager’s unit within the organizational hierarchy of the department. On request, askUS Support can create a new sup org or make changes, such as: inactivate; reactivate; change the name, manager, department code, subtype, superior org, default cost center, or primary location. askUS Support can also assist with moving vacant positions or moving 5 or more workers into a new or existing sup org.
