IBM are changing their HR Application for employees to join IBM Club on May 28th 2019.  Up to May 27th there will continue to be the "You and IBM" tool for employees to apply to Club.  From May 28th, IBM will be using the Workday application, (https://w3.ibm.com/workday/) instead.  Employees will apply for membership to IBM Clubs themselves on the Workday tool.  Employees will also use this application to change Club and cancel their membership.

If you just want to check to see if you are an IBM Club member take a look at your last pay slip. If you are a member then there will be an entry for "IBM CLUB". If you have other membership related questions please send them to:
