  • Workday Profile Photos - Workday HCM allows employees to upload an appropriate professional photo in their Worker Profile to enhance communication between employees (it is not a social media platform).

    Photos require manager (immediate supervisor) approval prior to being visible in Workday. The approved photo appears in the individual’s Workday profile and is visible to anyone at Texas A&M who is logged into Workday.   If the employee does not wish to upload a photo, the default Workday icon will be displayed and will replace any inappropriate or unapproved photos.  Any supervisor within the reporting chain has the authority to request the employee take down and replace the photo or use the default icon, if it does not meet the required appropriate photo examples.
    • Examples of appropriate photos: individual headshots (i.e. Texas A&M University ID, or a similar photo like that on a driver’s license of just the employee - no images, text, etc.).  The photo should be clear, of good quality and be taken close enough for the employee to be easily identified.

    • Examples of inappropriate photos:  caricatures, group photos, vacation photos, sports/hobby photos, or any other image than that of the employee, etc.
