What do you like best?

Workday is a very easy tool to use. You are able to go from one person to another with ease or you can open a duplicate tab and have one employee on one tab and another on the new tab. When you are searching you do not have to put the whole word or name in, you can use just the first three or so letters of the word you are typing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Security access can block usability and make it harder to see what you need. If you are thinking of changing to it make sure you really are thoughtful on how you set up your access to information for your staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The tool is great, just make sure during implementation you have a clear road map of your security before you start the process. Be thoughtful about how you structure your organization so that you make sure that people have access to the data they need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better analytics and streamlining some pain points from our previous HRIS tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think workday hcm is current leader in the market with most of companies already onboard with the Workday HCM and it will be safe to say that it is quite useful in multiple ways for us as a HR , First of all the service of sending tasks to multiple groups and multiple people makes it very helpful for us as hr to complete various tasks which might have required so much effort by doing them manually .

The configuration of business processes is also very easy and i think anyone with very little experience can do it so fast ,using the intiuitive buttons and just drag drop the functions to desired row and we are done ,we can then run the task with any defined role.

It is also easy to set up profiles and see various details of profile from different views.i think it is amazing that we can have profile of every employee then also link them to the team tree , which ahead links to the company tree and anyone can go the profile of the employee and see where the tree is connecting from and where will it join the senior management making it easy for everyone to track employee manager and senior management relationship.

I also like the UI it is nice and colorful although sometimes it is bit slow but it is very stable inmost of the times which is great.

I like that notification link to email also which is very useful to remind of tasks Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ability to easily customize throughout Workday, from reporting and employee data to business processes and approvals, makes the system a very valuable tool for HR and other departments who have the chance to use it. The process to set up integrations with benefit vendors, payroll systems, etc. although it can take time to set up is also incredibly helpful to save time and energy in the long term. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although most all aspects of the system are customizable and able to be changed, there are some delivered reports and processes that cannot be updated. For example, some data cannot be exported from certain reports. I believe with each new release, Workday will continue to improve and take customer feedback into consideration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Workday as an overall system of record for HR, performance management, onboarding, benefits administration, expenses, payroll and reporting. Having all of this information in the same place with the ability to pull in any necessary information has been incredibly helpful. I also believe the ability to update visibility and access for certain roles is very helpful for collaboration across teams and departments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I manage to consolidate the advantages of mine, PTO and also review choices, on a certain area. I think also it's a lot more robust/needs a great deal smaller in downtime than our earlier software. In addition, workday includes regular computer user logins, password established, internet time sheet etc which I are looking for. I actually love the ability to find HR related functions/questions / info on one spot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only complaint of mine is I've had the opportunity to directly edit several of the info and reviewer of the team member of mine on my to promote from our older platform. I believe it is a far more long process to personally update from the point of mine and via a number of people outside my instant department, whether since of a shortage of access rights, or just because the department of mine of HR has proven it.

I love the simplicity with which time has proved helpful also time of asking for policies. The method works really well for the colleagues of mine, and I can revise the entries and distribute them to my boss easily. Sending notifications to everybody about updating info on a working day is one more great feature that we frequently use. It is likewise good to get a fast link function, as it tends to make things a lot easier to get in a time crunch. Its payroll function has also been helpful to me, and I love to have the ability to return as well as see previous checks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The procedure may be tiring. Whenever I make something different, it experiences top management. The process and the objectives of self assessment were additionally very difficult. There were a few steps, and I did not understand why that was the way in which it had to be. They had been simply meant to make almost everything offered online rather than us needing to publish a word docs of our assessments and goals. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that Workday replaces several softwares that our institution was using. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Workday is not always intuitive. Even with training videos, simple functions like correcting time off balances are difficult. Our Workday is programed in hours and can not switch to days and half-days. It's irritating trying to calculate how many days off I have left when it's listed in hours.

Apparently, Workday has caused major issues with hundreds of employees not being paid. This issue has forced my colleagues into working a huge amount of overtime to problem-solve. As of October, hundreds of employees had not been able to be paid through Workday since August! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Any training should be done with the software available to the staff. Our training was done before the software was launched and the training for the common user was essentially useless as a result. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am trying to minimize my use of Workday and now only use it to book time off, sick days, and to refer people to job opportunities. I have also used it to submit my assistant's timesheets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love that Workday is very user friendly, both on the administration side and the end user. As an administrator I love that we can be self-sufficient. If we need to create a new report or update a report we can do that. If we need to update or create a new business process or workflow we can do that.

I also love that Workday has a whole suite of products that work together. It makes system fatigue less for the end user when they can look at their payslip, change their home address, open a position for recruitment, process an expense request or take a required work training all in one place!

Lastly, I love that Workday has fantastic resources like community! I go to community to search for best practices and how other users have solved issues often. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much that I dislike about Workday. There is a bit of a learning curve and takes some time to learn the Workday language. There are times I have wished Workday was more intuitive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The workflow management and security features of Workday are extremely helpful for our business. It helps with compliance issues and audits. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I think the tool is very clear - the dashboard and the user interface is very functional. We can grant access to our employees and assign different user groups with different editing rights. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The overtime can only be evaluated according to the month in which it was worked, so unfortunately the payment is always delayed by one month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this tool we can accurately calculate all working hours and settle them according to each employee. This also works well for field work. We can export the data directly for the calculation of wages and thus create added value and reduce the effort for payroll accounting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Workday does have lots of useful functionality that covers a wide range of use cases. It is set up in such a way to be relatively easy to access, and it does contain lots of information in it that is useful for the end user. While there are almost certainly better options out there in the world, at a minimum it is useful for the things that you would most likely intend to use it for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A lot of the functionality that the end user might want to use is buried in places that are really very hidden and hard to find. As an example, to find my salary and other compensation details, I have to navigate through probably four or five different screens, and then find it buried in a random menu bar in a random place on the screen. Really not an ideal user experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We use Workday to help manage HR details for our company. It is the system for tracking employees and maintaining employee profiles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There has been some issues loading occasionally when I was working regularly at work with it. Also these days due to the Pandemic, there seems to be issues logging in. But this may be due to a large number of other Users logging in causing freezing or lagging. If this would be remedied, it would be much better to get through!

Various work life features are properly segregated and organized, which makes it easier to navigate as well as use. I like the user profile section the best, as it provide all the necessary details in various sections. Also, lets you edit then and there in case you need to modify something, if you're eligible to, thus provides security too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are somethings in workday which are a little rudimentary. For example, when I used to fill job applications in workday for various companies, there were some fields which it will make the registered user to fill in every single application. The same details could be saved once for general section like Gender, Location, Work Authorization details etc. This will save users a lot of time if they spend a lot of time on workday. The similar issues exist in various sections of an employee dashboard (account). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything related to work life, like payroll, leave management, taxation, performance management, career path management etc. Also, workday provides immense benefits when it comes to requesting documents from company HR folks like address certificate, tax documents, employment authorization certificates etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
