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.

In this video, Jeni Fitzpatrick, senior vice president of HR at Convergys, and Ryan Festerling, executive vice president of HR at Kohl’s, join Workday Chief People Officer Ashley Goldsmith to discuss the use of technology to increase transparency in the workplace.
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.
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.
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:
In 2006, Workday was a tiny HR software startup with one customer. Four years later, on a balmy Tuesday morning in San Francisco, co-founder Dave Duffield spoke to hundreds of Workday Rising conference attendees about the significance of the gathering.
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.
