While you get up to speed on the Workday implementation across the UW system, take some time to get to know the Administrative Transformation Program all-star team members who make our work possible. This month, we’re sitting down for a Q&A with ATP business systems analyst Kate Ingram, who works with our HR Payroll Design Team.

What’s your hometown?
Lake Mills, WI 

How long have you worked for the Universities of Wisconsin, where, and in what roles?
I’ve worked for UW since 2006, spending my entire career in the various iterations of what is now known as UW-Shared Services (if you don’t count my student custodian position I held while in college!). I began as a payroll and benefits specialist on the central payroll team, and prior to coming over to ATP, I was a business analyst on the core payroll team, where I helped support and maintain the payroll module of Human Resource System. I helped with the design/test/rollout of new functionality, updating configuration, doing break/fix, working on-call issues, running payroll calcs/confirms, and more.  

What’s your role and team on ATP?
I am a business systems analyst on the payroll and compensation teams.  

Why did you want to work for ATP?
I wanted to work for ATP because, as someone who has spent a significant amount of time maintaining our current enterprise resource planning system, I was genuinely eager to be a part of the team that is designing and streamlining our future ERP and business processes. This is the largest scope project I’ve ever been a part of, and it is exciting and challenging, and I’m glad to contribute my small part to a successful Workday rollout! 

What is a fun fact about you?
I’ve seen the Rolling Stones in concert 10 times (starting when I was 5 years old). I am anticipating show number 11 in 2024!
