Workday Intros People Experience
•An employee preparing for benefits enrollment or a leave of absence could proactively receive guidance including deadline notifications, helpful FAQs, and required documentation.
•A newly-promoted sales manager
could receive recommended content for leadership training; a set of
onboarding tasks that direct her to set up sales targets, enter
forecasts, and review the pipeline in a CRM system; and a snapshot of
her team members -- including their roles, birthdays, and work
anniversaries -- to help her get to know them.
People working across separate
applications, websites, and systems to conduct workplace tasks often
struggle to find answers to basic questions and information when they
need it most. To address this challenge, some companies aggregate and
promote content, applications, and services with an HR portal. But even
the most advanced HR portals are clunky, tough to navigate, and tethered
to a desktop or laptop environment -- creating more frustration and
friction than ease, and lacking the full context of the person using it.
Workday will simplify this heterogeneous environment with a single,
cohesive experience for employees that is accessible via mobile devices
and underpinned by the rich context and people data within their core
people management system -- Workday HCM. With a truly connected,
personalized experience, Workday will be able to intelligently deliver
the content, support, and guidance people need during critical moments
throughout their employee journey.
•Personalized Content - Information and content will be proactively pushed to employees through simple card visualizations and in a personalized feed, delivering content specific to key moments in a person's workplace journey, such as onboarding, job transitions, and life events.
•Integrations for Non-Workday Applications - Workday will provide integrations for key third-party services providers and applications most used by employees, as well as an extensible set of APIs to develop custom integrations. For instance, companies offering stock and retirement plans could use a Workday-delivered integration to give employees easy, direct access to their financial services provider's website.
•Advanced Search - Built-in, advanced search capabilities will enable policies and documents to be full-text searched. For example, a sales executive preparing for a new business pitch could search for and find the team's shared competitive intelligence documents right from his Workday home page -- even if they are stored in a separate, web-based word processing program.
•Extensions to Natural Workspaces - Workday's intuitive user experience will extend to employees' external applications and tools they use to collaborate, chat, and drive productivity. For instance, after a project presentation, a manager's anytime feedback given in Workday could surface in the instant messaging stream of the tool the team used to manage the project.
•Personalization Capabilities -
Workday Designer, a web design tool that enables customers to
personalize their Workday experience without requiring coding, will help
create a differentiated, branded experience for employees. For example,
adding imagery and logos and using similar brand colors would give
employees a familiar experience while making the corporate brand more
