Overall Satisfaction with Workday Human Capital Management

We use Workday to manage all of our HR functions. This includes pay, benefits, reviews, job postings, etc. Workday is our sole source for all HR data and organizational charts/info on other employees. We use it enterprise-wide and have been running it for approximately 3 years. It does a great job of storing all this information in one location and it is easy to search.
  • Single repository for all HR information that is easy to search.
  • Provides interactive org charts that allow you to drill up and down easily to see the entire chain of command.
  • Provides easy access to your data and the ability to update information and interact with HR in a secure/contained environment.
  • The interface is not intuitive and it is hard to navigate. I find that often make several extra clicks trying to find where I should be.
  • The performance review function is also not intuitive. The text appears to be grayed out, you have to edit each section and then move on. Overall it is not easy to walk through the process and is confusing.
  • The annual benefits enrollment is also not easy to navigate and understand. There are lots of clicks, lots of drop downs, and the required fields are not easy to spot.
  • 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.
Workday was the market leader and being offered as SaaS was also a deciding factor. We liked the functionality of the product and the ability to have all HR data/processes in a single repository. It's ability to streamline workflows and processes and allow employees to manage their own personal info is very powerful.
I feel it is a great enterprise HR tool and it is the market leader. That said, the interface is confusing and participating in the annual processes/workflows is also confusing and I always feel like it is going to not save and make me re-do all my work. It does store all this data in one place which is the main benefit. You can see all your info, paychecks, reviews, benefits, etc. You can also search for jobs and other people very easily.
