Workday Learning: A new disruptor in the fast-paced learning market

Workday Learning: A new disruptor in the fast-paced learning market
Posted by Jason Magill, Manoj Parthasarathy, and Walt Sokoll on November 30, 2016.

In Bersin by Deloitte’s new report previewing 2017’s top nine trends disrupting HR technology, the learning market is featured for its ongoing massive evolution. Driven by cultural, demographic, and business realities, learning and development (L&D) is being viewed as essential not only to ensure a suitably skilled and competent workforce but also to attract talent (particularly Millennials) in the first place. According to the report, “[the] entire marketplace of corporate learning tools is being turned on its head….”1 We’ve had the chance to observe this firsthand with the introduction of Workday Learning, a new entrant in the fast-paced, cloud-based learning market.

New at Workday Rising: Supporting health care M&A
Posted by Peggy Chin on October 25, 2016.

Leaders in HRIS and benefits at Rochester Regional Health recently presented their experiences at Workday Rising in Chicago. The health system serves the greater Rochester and Finger Lakes region of New York and, like many others in its industry, has been growing steadily by merger and acquisition. The reasons Rochester chose Workday and the benefits that decision has enabled make an interesting case in point for organizations in any industry looking to move HR systems to the cloud or better manage the talent aspects of M&A activity.

On trend: Organizing around teams

On trend: Organizing around teams

Posted by Walt Sokoll on August 30, 2016.

A startling 92 percent of companies responding to Deloitte’s 2016 Global Human Capital Trends research rated redesigning the organization as very important or important, making it the No. 1 trend in this year’s report. One of the primary ways we see this organizational restructuring playing out is in the rise of teams—companies moving away from traditional hierarchical organization structures and empowering networks of teams centered around customers, products, markets, or missions.

Heading to the cloud? Learn from this company’s speedy trip

Posted by Tim Ely, on June 8, 2016.

The potential benefits of moving from on-premises systems to cloud-based systems are well-documented, including lower up-front investment, reduced ongoing maintenance and costs, ease of updating, faster implementation, standardization across systems, and the like. These factors, along with a desire to transform HR to more easily access reliable data and better serve users, led one global company to migrate to the cloud in a big way—retiring more than 70 legacy systems on its brisk 15-month journey.

Re-energizing HR: One company’s journey

Re-energizing HR: One company’s journey

Posted by Christopher Cameron on January 06, 2016.

One of the trends we examined in our Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report was the need for HR to get better at keeping pace with changes in the business. With only 5 percent of survey respondents rating their organization’s HR performance as excellent, and 32 percent rating it as underperforming or “getting by,” it seems clear that many HR organizations are struggling to deliver what the business needs (see Reinventing HR: An extreme makeover). This could have been the case with the HR organization in one company we worked with —but it wasn’t. Instead, HR leaders took the opportunity afforded by the business’s dramatic turnaround to reinvent HR in similar bold fashion.

Today at Workday Rising: A Look at Application Management Services

Workday Rising

Posted by Greg Viola on September 11, 2013

On tap today at Workday Rising 2013 is a session I’m co-presenting with a client from Sony Electronics. About a year into its Workday implementation, Sony Electronics chose to use Deloitte Application Management Services (AMS) to help enhance the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and overall value of its investment in Workday Human Capital Management. Our presentation today talks about the what’s and why’s of AMS in general, and Sony Electronics’ experiences specifically.

I imagine many of you may be asking why you’d even need a third-party AMS provider. One of the drivers for selecting Workday, or another SaaS solution, is to lower total cost of ownership, a significant part of which includes ease of configuration and ongoing maintenance. So if you have to hire an external third-party provider to help support your cloud solution, is it really worth it?
