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.

I am using Workday regularly for applying leaves, tracking them, viewing my salary slip, tracking change in compensation, providing IT declaration, updating shift and stand by hours. Also, I have used Workday for requesting various letters from my organization automatically like experience letter, compensation letter, etc. The mail notification feature of workday enables me to receive notification whenever there is an update to my compensation or change in my role or on promotion.

Pros

Workday is a centralized workforce management tool that is used in my organization. In Workday, all the important day to activities of an employee can be performed like applying for leaves, getting them approved by manager, viewing and downloading salary slips, providing IT declaration, providing beneficiary info, address info, education info and many more. Various important letters like Offer letter, experience letter, etc can also be directly requested using Workday. It is a cloud based tool and can be accessed from anywhere.

Cons

It is an expensive tool that can only be used by big enterprises. Also, the workday UI can be confusing for new users who will find it difficult to navigate and find the required sections in workday.

Best HCM Option

Reviewed on 24/06/2022

Great HCM. By far the best I have worked with in my HR career.

Great HCM. By far the best I have worked with in my HR career.

Pros

Workday is not perfect, but it is the best HCM software that I have used. You can integrate almost every aspect of HR into one platform. The employee self service is easy to use.

Cons

It can be time consuming / a big lift to implement and deploy new modules within Workday, especially if you don't have a knowledgeable Workday team dedicated to the project. I have worked on small Workday implementation teams where we learned as we went along (it's painful) and I have worked with Workday consultants who do all of the work. I highly recommend hiring experts for the implementations. You are paying a lot for the software and want to make sure it is setup properly and getting the full value.

Managing personal development, onboarding, kudos, payslips, holiday and sickness requests and suchlike. It's good for most things, but I find the issue with accessing payslips really frustrating!

Pros

The inbox feature is great in alerting me when I have actions to undertake, I like being able to add and receive Kudos through it and it's easy to request holiday and to see how much holiday I have remaining

Cons

The thing which annoys me is that I don't seem to be able to access my payslips easily through this at all. It requires a separate login through my e-pay, which I have only been able to manage through my phone. It really shouldn't require a separate login (different to my Workday one) to view my payslips - surely this could be integrated. I'd also like to be able to delete items entered into my personal development section - this doesn't seem to be possible? Overall the platform is a bit cumbersome and tricky to use.

Cons

If you get locked out of your account it would take a long while before you was able to get back into the account.
