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 Tami Eberle, ATP’s Document Management Design Team Lead.

What’s your hometown?
Monroe, WI — home of Cheese Days! I currently live on five acres in Monticello, WI.

How long have you worked for the Universities of Wisconsin, where, and in what roles?
I started at the university in 2001, almost 23 years ago. My entire career has been supporting the central HR/benefits/payroll system. I started at the UW Processing Center at UW–Madison, which became the UW Service Center. Later, the organization was moved under UW System Administration and became UW-Shared Services. So, I’ve come full circle back to UW–Madison!

I’ve held various roles, including Payroll and Benefit Specialist supporting payroll and a Payroll and Benefit Coordinator role, which supported more of the configuration/processing aspects of the legacy payroll system. I transitioned to the Human Resource System (HRS) Project Team and was the Time and Labor Lead during that entire project. My last role at Shared Services was the HR/TAM/Finance Manager overseeing all three areas of configuration, processing, upgrades, etc. for HRS.

What’s your role and team on ATP?
I am currently the Document Management Design Team Lead on the Cross-Functional Team.

Why did you want to work for ATP?
I knew that Workday was the UW’s future. I wanted the opportunity to share and contribute what I’ve learned over my career. Document management was an area for which there was a need, and it presented me with an opportunity to bring knowledge to the project. It also provided an opportunity for me to learn new technology and systems.

What is a fun fact about you?
I love working on stained-glass projects in my spare time.
