MISSION

To be the premier higher education solutions partner for Workday.

Why “Alchemy”?

Transformation.

Taking the ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary.
A change in state to something of greater value.
This is what we want to achieve for our customers.

ALCHEMY CORE VALUES

Teammates

Our team is more powerful than our individuals. We share common goals. We rely on and trust one another. We value equality and diversity. “Teamwork makes the dream work.”

Customer Focused

All decisions we make have our customers in mind. We aspire to establish long-lasting partnerships with our customers. Successful outcomes are more important to us than time and dollars.

Entrepreneurs

We believe in challenging the status quo. We live for finding new ways to do tired tasks, for taking a fresh look at a paralyzed process. We are imaginative and disruptive in well-behaved ways.

Tenacious

We get the job done. We are relentless in the pursuit of success as defined by our customers. We embrace a tough challenge, and we never give up.

Genuine

We are genuine toward each other, our customers, and our mission and values. We will always tell you the truth. And when we make mistakes, we will own and fix them.
