In this episode of "In Good Company," Meredith Coughlin, assistant dean of enterprise systems at Indian River State College, and Sean Hanna, analyst of student systems at the University of Rochester, discuss the current challenges higher education institutions face as the traditional path to degree completion has evolved.
As the oldest media business in the world—founded by King Henry VIII in 1534—you might not associate Cambridge University Press with the idea of HR transformation. But with 2,723 colleagues across 50 offices in 40 countries, the organisation knew it was time to make a change. Cathy Armor, director for people at Cambridge University Press, shares how they moved from dated HR systems to a single, unified system with Workday.
At Workday, we’ve worked hard to understand our healthcare customers’ challenges and support them in meeting their business goals. Today, Workday is honored to be named Best in KLAS in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) by KLAS Research. Workday was also recognized as a Category Leader in Talent Management.
Workday was ranked highest in HRMS vendor satisfaction and user experience by HR and IT practitioners and leaders in the Sierra-Cedar 2017–2018 HR Systems Survey. We’re honored by the results of this survey, which “stands alone as a global benchmark of HR technology adoption and the value achieved from the use of these technologies,” according to Sierra-Cedar.
As we look ahead to Workday Rising in October, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on some of the takeaways from last year’s event. Here are three things we learned from a great slate of speakers on leadership, innovation, and the importance of staying agile during times of change.
Workday today announced Workday Insight Applications, a brand new approach to business analytics. Workday's Dan Beck, vice president of technology products and Adeyemi "Ade" Ajao, vice president of technology strategy, answer five questions about how the applications work─and the talent and technology behind them.
When vendors begin to sound the same and any one of them can claim a business process is simple, intuitive, or seamless, companies need to ask a few fundamental questions to cut through the marketing talk and see differentiation in action: “Can you show it? How elegant is the experience? And how much of our own time and resources are required to achieve it?” We hope Product Spotlights start to answer these questions. So take a look at a few favorites across HR and finance, and stay tuned as we’ll share more throughout the year!
As our chief accounting officer (CAO), Robynne Sisco manages day-to-day finances at Workday. We asked Robynne to share a bit about her role at the Workday Blog, as well as her unique perspective as a user of Workday's financial management system. Robynne told us that being a CAO isn't all about numbers and accounting regulations—at least not when you're at a company that's redefining finance for the enterprise.
One of the best things about my job is spending time with our customers—some who have been with Workday since the early days. Mark Newsome, director of corporate human resources at McKee Foods, is one of these folks. I recently asked Mark to share his thoughts on the value of Workday Recruiting—in particular, how he expects it to help McKee “answer the questions” related to candidates in the pipeline, and even predict those most likely to be successful at McKee Foods.
Late last year, Shelter Insurance Companies selected Workday to move our finance operations off legacy technology and into the cloud. We are nearly halfway through and expect to have Workday Financial Management fully deployed in September. Workday invited me to contribute to the Workday Blog, and I’ve taken them up on the opportunity to share our experience with others.
It's been an exciting week for us here at Workday, and for our customers too. In this video, we share highlights from "Workday Elevate" in San Francisco on May 6, where our Chairman, Co-Founder, and Co-CEO Aneel Bhusri introduced Workday Recruiting, an application that redefines recruiting and already has been selected by more than 70 customers.
With every Workday update, we ask ourselves the same question: How can we meet the requirements of large enterprise customers in a way that's simpler, faster, and smarter? Below I highlight several new features in Workday 22, announced today, that demonstrate how we're delivering on that promise. It's just a sample of all the new functionality we've added to Workday Financial Management in this update—including more than 25 major new features—and as always, our customers have the flexibility to "turn on" any feature at their convenience.
On Friday I posted on the Workday Blog about a meeting at the White House about opening up data to address U.S. Veterans’ unemployment. Related to that, a new federal law goes into effect today that requires federal contractors and subcontractors to adopt benchmarks for hiring and employing veterans.
Last month I joined leaders from both the public and private sectors in a discussion at the White House. We met in a room as stately and mahogany-adorned as you might envision, with the talk focused on a common goal: using open data to connect job seekers with employers. Closing the gap between skills employers need and locating people with those skills is key to building a more efficient labor market. It’s especially important to one swath of the workforce that we in the U.S. owe our gratitude, which is returning military veterans.
At Workday, we have always believed in the power of one. We recently made some changes to how we develop Workday that will strengthen that power of one by allowing us to deliver new innovations to our customers more continuously, while at the same time helping them to absorb significant changes to our applications more easily.
On March 13, Workday announced that JDA Software had selected Workday Financial Management with plans to migrate off its legacy ERP system and unify its HR and finance in the Workday cloud. It’s yet another example of a company that realizes the value of this move and where it can lead.
