Overall Satisfaction with Workday Human Capital Management

The whole organization uses to manage our pay, benefits, performance, feedback, time off, and time sheets for folks who need to submit those. It makes a lot of processes that could be done manually or over spreadsheets automated and simple. We also use it to manage things like healthcare and other benefit elections.
  • It's really easy to see my pay and how much I have been paid over time and where the different parts of my paycheck are going in regards to taxes, social security, 401k, etc.
  • Easy to give feedback to colleagues within the platform.
  • The search functionality is pretty bad. I'd love to be able to search for specific documents and have the search functionality bring them up (W2, April 2020 payslips). But it doesn't currently seem to recognize almost any search query
  • Its really hard to tell how the categories were created. For example if I want to find my W2 why is it hidden under Pay -> Tax documents but its not hidden under personal information -> worker documents. If your search functionality worked this would be less annoying.
  • The way you choose to collapse certain items is odd. Like in "personal information" there are 5 items shown up front and then it says "More (2)." The items are small, there is no reason to cut them off after only 5.

  • Feedback
  • Benefits election
  • Easy to give feedback
  • Easy to manage pay
  • Easy to do our 2x per year reviews
There are a lot of functions of Workday that we choose to manage over Confluence (our internal wiki). Not sure if this is better or worse but its a choice we've made. They both have not good search functionality so thats something could benefit from.

Do you think Workday Human Capital Management delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Workday Human Capital Management's feature set?

Yes

Did Workday Human Capital Management live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Workday Human Capital Management go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Workday Human Capital Management again?

Yes

I believe that Workday Human Capital Management is well suited for companies that are looking to manage HR for a larger number of employees (at least 100). It seems like it would be more than is necessary below that but to be completely honest I do not work in HR and don't know. It also seems good for organizations that track hours worked.
