Leadership Update at Workday

Employees are our top priority, and that makes our “all company” meetings some of the most fun gatherings we have all year. We held a meeting yesterday, and while we don’t typically circulate any of the discussion externally, this time we have an announcement to share with our extended Workday friends and family.

Earlier this week, we each accepted new job titles from the Board of Directors. Aneel is now Chief Executive Officer and Dave is Chairman of the Board of Directors. We are no longer co-CEOs, but our day-to-day responsibilities remain the same. This is just a reflection of the way our roles have evolved over the past few years. Aneel remains focused on strategy, products, operating results, and company-wide execution of our business plans. Dave will continue to focus on our Education and Government business, the development of Workday Student, and maintaining and enhancing our culture and values.

Our friendship and partnership has never been stronger. We’ll continue to look at the business as co-founders. And we’ll remain focused on employees and customers, as we firmly believe that happy employees equal happy customers. Together, with the rest of the Workday team and community, we’re aiming to bring that 97 percent customer satisfaction to a perfect 100.

And now, back to work!
