Workday HCM also offers a range of recruiting tools to help set up career sites that are compatible with mobile devices and integrated into social media platforms such as LinkedIn.

The talent management tools provided by Workday HCM help recruiters identify top talent and best matches for open positions from existing talent pools of current employees and external candidates. The performance management tools include goal management and alignment for both individuals and departments. Feedback reviews and rewards can also be used to praise performance and goal completion. Succession Planning allows users to monitor the health of the succession pipeline taking into account factors such as successor readiness and a flight risk.

Workday HCM payroll solution includes analytics and reporting to run audits and drill down into payroll details. The global payroll solution provides integration with third-party payroll applications to manage payments in different countries. Workday HCM also facilitates benefits administration by offering employees complete visibility into benefit coverage such as health, retirement, and insurance. Users can use the software to manage and analyze benefit plans, costs, eligibility rules, and more. The Cloud Connect features allow users to connect Workday with 3rd party benefit providers.

Best HR tool a company can use

Reviewed on 24/02/2022

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.

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 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.
