generally in the workbench we work directly with package files. You can 
easily bring existing package files in to the workbench, first you will 
need a project in the workbench, File > New > Project choose the 
Mathematica Basic Project, name the project and then go through the rest 
of the prompts. Once the project has been created you can bring the 
package file, either use drag and drop (if your file system supports 
this), or by using the import from file system. Select the project, 
choose File > Import > General > File System, and use the dialog to 
select the package file.

There is also a Mathematica import wizard, that extracts code from a 
notebook file, again select the project, choose File > Import > Other > 
Mathematica Import Wizard. In the first dialog select the notebook that 
you wish to import from, and then select to import input or 
initialization cells (if the notebook was used to create a package, you 
probably want the initialization cells), then click next and name the 
target file, make sure the project you wish to have the package in is 
selected, and that the target file ends in .m.

Hopefully through either of these methods you will begin to be able to 
use the workbench.
