Workday HCM

Workday HCM requires constant and a lot of HRIS support and in the event that a company cannot afford to staff accordingly it may create a lot of frustration. The system allows for a lot of flexibility in customizing and automating processes; however, that also requires constant maintenance by an experienced technical team. Workday HCM is a great solution for companies that are looking to capitalize on employee and manager self-service, standardization of practices, compliance and automation.

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's on a great path in terms of user experience. Their goals is to deliver a use experience that doesn't require training or instruction, like Amazon on the consumer side for example. That's hard to do when you're talking about complex business processes and important and sensitive employee information, but they're doing it well

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

In-Person Training

Workday HCM

Workday HCM 9.6
Based on 6 answers
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.

Online Training

Workday offers various training through the Learning Management System, such as On-Demand Education as well as in-classroom. The online training is professionally done and are high quality videos; some include an automated tutor, while others are with a Workday Trainer going through the system and presentations. This is definitely valuable in the very beginning of the project where Subject Matter Experts can learn the foundation of Workday. It is a great way for remote users to understand the basics of the system and is valuable to refer to throughout the full life cycle of the implementation. Workday also provides informative videos that contain pertinent information for upcoming updates. Personally, I have taken all forms of training and consider it to be very beneficial. The only concern that I receive from customers is the price and cost of travel

Implementation

Workday HCM

Workday HCM 10.0
Based on 12 answers
There were some miscommunications from the One Source team and the implementation was a little rocky.
• They entered employee data late in the process leaving us no time to clean the data.
• We did not get much information from the implementation team, on why things were being done the way they were, and we felt a bit out of the loop. Their process was very complex and communication with us was poor.
• In general, I would say that the One World team knew how to get our data in the system, but they didn’t know much about how the system actually works. Result of this is that we were left to our own devices once the implementation was complete. They didn’t provide any documentation or guidance on how to get up and running with the system. Some of this is a Workday problem: they have virtually no best practice documentation or admin user documentation, so we were on our own. Most of our questions were answered by other clients through the community forum / knowledge base, but the forum design is poor and it can be quite difficult to find the information you need.
• One Source did set up a sandbox environment which was useful; but unfortunately, anything we built in the sandbox could not be transferred to production, but had to be re-created

Alternatives Considered

Workday HCM

The user interface is modern and quick to use, similar to Google and Amazon. The system works at a faster pace, allowing you to get more work done. There is a robust community of users that provide support, answers, and reporting templates (to name a few) when you have questions or need help.

Scalability

Based on 2 answers
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

Return on Investment

Workday HCM

  • Our HR team was able to trim down its external vendors significantly once Workday was implemented.
  • I personally saw as an employee the before and after of Workday so I know how relieved HR was that they did not have to get involved in processes that were prone to manual error such as release of compensation data at the same time to everyone via email.
