Workday HCM

I always recommend Workday to others, mainly because the reporting makes my life so much easier. I think any large company with a significant amount of HR data to track would benefit from Workday. The implementation process is a significant time commitment so it may not be worth it for smaller companies who have other ways of tracking information.

Pros

  • Easy to use reporting dashboard for you and your customers.

  • The user experience is superior to all others. It is built like all the consumer tools out there, so employees are familiar with the icons and navigation
  • Finally a solution that really has reporting that is already built in. There is no need to buy a data warehouse or anything
  • Configuring really is simple. you dont need to hire technical people to learn how to configure business processes

Cons

  • Need to be more open to suggestions from clients.
  • Need to get better customer service turnaround time.
  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • Time Tracking in countries with complex work-week and shift schedules is a challenge. I expect we'll continue to see improvements with Workday planned global expansion.
  • I would love for Workday to provide in-depth training at no cost for system administrators. We are able to manage the system and our needs independently. Depending on the project, it may take us longer and we may not really be optimizing the process or system if we're missing knowledge and experience that would help us do so.

It is work to make one system the source of truth for our data, but now that it is done, there is less work involved in staying on this path. This means for us that maintaining and/or implementing new modules like performance, finance, talent, etc. is simple. It's a no-brainer

Workday is okay - it looks nice on the outside, but they still have some bugs to deal with in the software so that it is more user-friendly and functioning for customers.

From my perspective, the system runs like a well oiled machine and I have not had any issues with customers complaining about speed. If a report is taking long to run, the report can run in the background and you can go about your business. For larger enterprises, there is additional space and machines to process the application in what Workday refers to it as Extended Configuration Tenant

The instructors are knowledgeable, the ability to do hands-on exercise throughout are invaluable. The materials are useful reference after training is over. However, for basic functionality the system is pretty easy to pick up and there are plenty of free classes and tools so that only the system support and implementation team really need to take formal Workday training.

There are 11 different courses. They have on-demand training one hour sessions and host half day training sessions – e.g. report writing split across 2 half days, where you go into a classroom online instructor led. The online stuff is all provided by Workday.

We had a small team - 5 of us total. It would have been nice to have a little larger team, but we made it work. Definitely helped that for our first payroll our 3rd party partner OSV was onsight. This minimized issues.

Workday has released Financials and is continuing to develop it's Human Capital Management footprint with the addition of Workday Recruiting. I think customers will find that is easy to add on additional functionality in the system.Workday does make it easy for customers to make changes without relying on IT resources. The Business Process framework is a visual tool that allows functional resources to make changes and see the flow of the transaction

  • Our previous system was homegrown and lacked in many areas. Going to Workday has given us a single source for all HR data that is easy to search and find what you are looking for.
  • Workday allowed us to streamline annual processes like performance reviews, raises, and benefits election. It has simplified these processes for the employees and provided more actionable data for HR.
  • Integration with other applications allows our user data to be used by other applications that need it. We simply output a file with username and ID to other apps that require that info.
