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 hire through to retire. Organizational charts and modeling features allow users to structure and visualize the entire organization, manage both employees and contingent labor, as well as to configure workflows and define businesses 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.

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 3 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.

Sad to not have Workday

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall, Workday is a good product with good support.

Pros

Workday was easy to navigate and very intuitive. A new employee could come in that was unfamiliar and quickly be up-to-speed. We had several upgrades, each making the process better each time.

Cons

We could not be on our own cloud, making the organization more vulnerable to cyber attacks.
