Workday HCM product overview

What is Workday HCM?

Workday HCM helps managers and HR teams to gain more visibility into all workforce operations, and to prepare organizations for growth and expansion. The system enables users to build strong teams of employees by finding skilled workers through talent searching and job profiles. Workday HCM enables enterprises to manage global teams from hiring through to retirement. Organizational charts and modeling features allow users to structure and visualize the entire organization, manage both employees and contingent labor, as well as configure workflows and define business processes. The HR software also allows users to manage time-off and absences through a self-service employee interface that includes time-off requests and reporting, time-tracking, and time-off rules automation.

Key benefits of using Workday HCM

Workday HCM Big Data Analytics integration: Choose from a range of pre-built analytics templates such as global payroll cost analysis, or use the Report Writer to generate custom visualizations to meet organization KPIs.

Workday HCM reports are multi-dimensional and immediately actionable. Users can see organization health metrics and receive alerts, analyze trends, and use predictive models to plan future decisions.

Workforce Planning: Segment roles and positions to analyze capacity and capability, identify talent pools, and plan actions for succession, recruiting, development, and performance evaluations.

Manage Attendance: Track and report time-off requests in real-time. Automate time-off rules and absence policies. Employees can use the self-service interface to request time-off.

Recruitment Tools: Candidates can search and apply for open positions from their mobile devices. Recruiting analytics allow users to assess the performance of new hires, analyze recruiting demand, and identify talent gaps.

Talent Management: Complete talent pipeline visibility allows employers to see current employees, external candidates, and prospects to identify top talent. Set up talent pools to target specific candidates when new positions open up.

Pros
Overall very positive experience with a good balance between ease of use and customizability.
Workday Benefits is overall a great solution for centralizing benefit information. Customer service is very helpful whenever issues arise, which is rare.
My overall experience was very positive. As I mentioned above it is one of the better benefits software I have used in my career.
Cons
More cons that pros, I'm afraid. The training was long, extensive and confusing.
Because of how much functionality is in the platform, I did get lost sometimes not knowing where to go.
The buttons are sometimes confusing. For example, submitting a request for vacation seems cumbersome as there are different buttons that seem to do the same thing displayed at the same time.

Best HR tool a company can use

Reviewed 9 months ago
Pros

My favorite aspect of Workday is the User Interface. The software is very easy to navigate for any user, and requires almost no training. I also love the personnel reports I can pull through Workday with our HRIS specialist.

Cons

The Workday implementation took a long time. It took months before the Workday team could implement this software for us to go live.

Best HR Tool for the End-User

Reviewed 21 days ago

Workday has all the HR resources and tools I use regularly at my fingertips. As an employee, I really appreciate that I don't have to track someone in HR down when I need access to a paystub, W2, or timesheet because everything is provided for me within Workday.

Pros

As an end-user of Workday, I love having everything I need from an HR perspective in one easy to use tool. Within the platform, I am able to track time, see paystubs, manage benefits, find certain resources or email addresses. I have worked at other companies that have provided the same resources but across several different platforms which made any HR related task very difficult for employees. Additionally, since our company has implemented Workday, I have received my pay on a consistent schedule on the same day of the week at the exact same time which is very helpful for budgeting purposes.

Cons

The user interface leaves much to be desired from a design perspective but it is clean and easy to navigate. The platform will sometimes glitch when adding time and submitting timesheets which has caused an issue for me in the past.

Great Tool for People Management and is Very Easy to Use

Reviewed 2 months ago

Workday HCM has been excellent. Very easy to use, lots of capabilities, and allows employees and team members to use the software to learn more about themselves and opportunities. It has been great for learning about my performance and seeing how I can grow and succeed. Whenever I see my payroll, I also always check the breakdown to see if everything is correct. I love the transparency and all the good documentation in the software, so nothing is lost on your employee file.

Pros

I like how intuitive the software is in the company and how easy it was implemented and adopted by the company. There are many, many features that are very useful for the day-to-day or week-to-week activities of our employees and team. I really like how every step is transparent and it shows you the hierarchy each decision goes through. For example if you are taking time off, it shows you who needs to approve next and the chain of command. This software is really a one stop shop for all Human Capital management in terms of performance, payroll, expenses, time off, training, and career management.

Cons

I actually don't have any negative things to say about workday HCM. It is really easy to use, and the documentation is really good on my employee file. If I need something, I can find it on my profile.

Workday Honest Review

Reviewed 19 days ago

Overall experience is really great since it is user friendly and the ease of accesss is so easy to navigate because it is straight forward and concise.

Pros

Workday shows all of the necessary details that we users need to access specially when it comes to checking our company info and details. It also gives the users an ease of access for their benefits and even job openings that we can use to grow inside our company.

Cons

We slowly and often get that much updates from the app. If creators can have a notification to the creator of requests , they will be notified of the urgent updates that the user needs so they can give updates right away.
