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.
Through a text and video experience, we share with you a story about Patagonia, a Workday Customer. Dean Carter, head of shared services, discusses the company's unique culture, and steps it takes to ensure employees don't have to choose between their families and careers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Among the insights I can share with my peers is that the Workday customer collaboration process is unique to the enterprise software industry. Today, many of us will be arriving in Las Vegas to attend Workday Rising, which will serve as an introduction for new customers to the Workday community.
We talk a lot in our industry about how consumer technologies drive innovation in enterprise technologies. My own favorite example of this is Worktags, just one of our inspirations from the consumer world. Worktags play a supporting role in how our customers will leverage innovations we announced today for Financial Management in Workday 18, as they did in many of the 17 updates that came before it. That's why Worktags deserve their very own blog post as to what they are and why they’re special.
Let's face it; tracking time is not the most beloved task in our work lives. Millions of workers do it because our companies require it and so we can get paid. In my prior life as an industry analyst, I entered my time to bill clients and to cost out our research initiatives. While I understood this was essential for business, I dreaded the onerous task.
I just finished my first day at Workday as I write this blog post. Many have asked me why I would move from an analyst job to work for a vendor. A key part of my job as an analyst was to listen to and help clients make critical technology purchasing and deployment decisions. During those discussions, I would hear about the myriad of challenges they faced selecting, implementing, and supporting their applications, and gaining value from their investments.
It was mid-2008 when I sat through my first demonstration of Workday Human Capital Management as an analyst covering the industry. I was curious what was going on with this company, given the pedigree of the leadership team and Workday's purist approach to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for core administrative systems.
I attended Workday Rising last year as a prospect. This year, several of my Time Warner Inc. colleagues and I are in Las Vegas attending as customers. It’s a different perspective, but one thing is consistent: Workday employees’ enthusiasm, which I think goes a long way.
Recently we announced a partnership with salesforce.com to connect Workday with Salesforce Chatter and Force.com. The announcement generated a number of questions, so we thought we'd share more about the rationale and implications of the partnership.
Like all companies, Workday does everything possible to avoid system failures. Unfortunately, they can still happen and when they do, we have a special obligation to our customers to bring systems back online quickly and securely given our status as a leading cloud vendor.
While there are many similarities to integrations that occur strictly within our own data centers, some aspects of SaaS integrations require fresh thinking. Ideally, certain SaaS integration requirements should be checked off as part of a SaaS candidate’s evaluation, and long before any integration begins. These are among the most critical of those requirements:
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.
