Yes you can!
But however, it depends when you say "different object"

- If the different object is in Master Detail Relationship then you can have a workflow on child obejct which can update the field on Master
- If the different object is in LookUp Relationship then you can have a PROCESS BUILDER (No Workflow here) on child object to update field on Parent
- If the object is not related at all then you need to write a trigger to update the record from whichever object to whichever object you would like.

Hope this helps!
