Workday is being used across our entire organization [as far as I'm aware]. The main problems it solves is tracking hours worked (being hourly), compensation, paystubs, requested time off, and personal information for HR purposes. This then integrates into other applications to track our org chart, commission pay, and contact information.
  • Fairly intuitive UI.
  • Easy to make changes to one's profile.
  • Ability to auto-populate set hours (if you work the same hours weekly).
Workday is a great enterprise application. It's easy to use to logging hours, requesting time off, and tracking one's pay.

When it comes to the cost of the solution, it may be better suited for MM & Enterprise clients vs SMB clients.

Workday Cloud Platform is used throughout the entire organization. We use it as a means for hourly workers to clock their hours, for employees to submit time off, for HR to send out offers and hire in employees and more. It creates a main source for employees to turn to for any HRIS needs.
  • Ease of Use for Hourly Employees - It is very easy and intuitive for hourly employees to clock in and out, track their hours, submit time off and so on. The app just recently underwent an update that made it even easier to clock in and out quickly with access from the homepage.
  • Inbox feature - Workday will send you tasks to your Workday inbox and guide you through completing them step-by-step. It makes learning new process and tasks all the more easy when you have a guide to help.
  • Customizable dispositions for candidates - The recruiting department will use completely customizable dispositions for job application candidates. This is a great feature for those hiring.
  • Glitching - Occasionally the app will glitch and shut down completely. Sometimes it can be when you are in the middle of something timely, causing frustration and issues. I haven't seen this happen as often recently.
  • Inbox - It would be helpful if Workday developed a feature to organize inbox tasks based off what department they are for, what the task is and so on. So you can quickly filter or look for the task at hand.
  • Candidate Tracking - Hiring managers throughout the company work with the HR department to track candidates, schedule interviews and so on. Workday does not always have the best interface in this regard. It could use a feedback feature for hiring managers to be able to be more involved, as they can be on other platforms.
The Workday Cloud Platform is best suited for larger companies that have mass amounts of employees to keep track of and many departments to hire for. I would not recommend Workday for a startup or smaller company. The HRIS (Human Resources Information Systems) abilities are best used in large companies that have large needs from across the business that need to rely on one source.
I give it this rating because, in its current capacity, it does not meet all of Human Resources' needs - which can cost the organization by having to rely on multiple platforms to do what one might be able to do. Again, as mentioned, it works great for what most employees require of it.

We are using the Workday Cloud Platform mainly for RRHH and payroll processes. All communication among different departments and RRHH/Payroll areas is done through the Workday Cloud Platform. Time off requests, Org Chart information, payroll information, and specific requests, can be used easily with Workday Cloud Platform. Mobile App with SSO platform brings anywhere access so we can manage all this information quickly
  • You are saving time with “boring” and time-intensive traditional requests.
  • Notifications and approval process are very easy.
  • Boring Look and feel
  • Steps needed to get the proper information
Traditional requests are boring and time-intensive. I used to spend a lot of time for time off requests, changing payroll information, or updating tax information for my company. For those reasons, not business-related activities were delayed or were not done. With Workplace Cloud Platform, you can easily bring all these activities into a single platform to deliver effectiveness to your employees in terms of RRHH or payroll activities. Simple platform integrated with your information systems to consolidated data. Also, the Workday Cloud Platform brings you a developing platform to grow your corporate knowledge.
I open a case one time with Workday Cloud Plateform regarding time off inconsistency. They are not directly responsible for this, but I was directed adequately with people to help me to solve this issue.

Workday is used across our organization for posting job opportunities, payslips, requesting and approving of PTO, and hiring.
  • Autopopulation of new hire resume into employee profile.
  • Ease of ability to request PTO.
  • Difficult to add vendor/contingent workers.
  • Slow load time.
Workday is well-suited for large corporations who need a centralized process for PTO, payslip retrieval, and hiring. Small organizations would not benefit from Workday. The amount of time and money required to walk through the Workday onboarding steps would not be worth the return.
I have not had any major technical issues with Workday that would require support. Any support can be handled internally. Slow load time is the main technical issue.

Workday is used to understand our organizational structure, directory, time off, and learning initiatives.
  • organizational structure (directory
  • time off
  • time off automatically put into our managers' calendars
Easy way to identify who works on each team, gain insight into our pay statements, and request time off.
Great UI and easy way to access internal information!
