Reviews of Workday HCM
Workday HCM, a victory in managing workforce.
Comments: Generally the experience with Workday HCM has been so beneficial to the entire organization both the employees and to the performance of our organization. It allows us to have well managed and orchestrated workforce which leads to us getting optimum results from all our work especially matters community awareness and development.
A valuable aspect about Workday HCM that we have really benefited from is how flexible it is as this allowed us to set it up in way that it perfectly matched with our nature of work. It allows us to get more productive results from individuals by aligning someones capabilities with the right kind of work roles. It has very reliable insights about workers which makes it easy to offer excellent work conditions which benefits both the company and the employee.
Despite Workday HCM being such an important product for managing workforce, all this comes at a cost. Also the user interface could be improved to get more intuitive.
Easy to inspect, edit and access payroll information
Comments: Excellent human resource management is made possible by Workday's integrated platform. Insights and statistics regarding employee preferences are provided, allowing for more informed decision making.
Workday is flexible software that facilitates many different aspects of human resource management. Workday HCM has user-friendly data analytics. By collecting and analyzing this data, we may gain useful understanding and improve our approaches to workforce management.
Workday does not offer a lot of room for user input. It also has trouble merging with other programs on occasion. In addition, there are sometimes technical difficulties. I think the user interface could use some work.
Workday is a pain for small vendors who want to be paid efficiently
Comments: I am a "vendor" for several organizations that use WorkDay to pay independent contractors (and full-time staff, I presume). I was excited to have a central interface where I could follow payments from several clients. I have found that this interface is hard to navigate and raises more questions than answers.
Ability to see invoices and their scheduled payments from multiple clients in one place.
Lack of transparency and lack of ability to see all invoices that have been submitted. For example, I have submitted multiple invoices (around 8) for one client and can only see 4. It's difficult to match the ones that appear in Workday to my own invoices. It's not clear when the payment will be processed. Not sure if this was a Workday issue, but I had updated my address across all fields and checks kept being sent to my old address. It just seems like there are way more issues than one would expect using a software like this, and it's awful to have to rely on such an unreliable system to get paid.
Strongest HCM we were able to identify
Comments: Very satisfied with Workday as a tool, we have recently conducted an internal assessment of how satisfied we are with the tool and it has highlighted very few areas where the tool is not meeting our needs. We see the tool as a long term solution for our organisation.
All requirements in one place, and more. Meaning we were able to centralise and transform (in an agile way) our HR processes as we implemented. Alerts allow for end users to engage and be engaged with using a sensible approach. All data in one place allows for reporting and budgeting to be easy.
Implementation was sticky for us. We had a number of requirements which we thought were typical however had to create significant work-arounds in order to meet our needs. This was resource heavy from our perspective and elongated the implementation (we used an implementation partner and not Workday FYI)
Increase HR and payroll compliance and daily efficiency
Comments: Post-sandbox testing, Workday can update and release software. This sandbox environment allows me to try things out, observe what happens, and then fine-tune my procedures. Many issues are resolved because to Workday's ability to notify workers of pending tasks and make information about those tasks readily available to them.
If you're familiar with the system and its customizations, you should be able to accomplish just about anything using Workday. I really like how workday can be used to both investigate past company procedures and improve current ones. After years of using ADP, I have concluded that Workday is the superior HR software.
In my opinion, the time it takes to find and interview potential candidates is too long. While Workday's learning resources are excellent, I do wish they provided more configuration-specific instruction.
