Workday Human Capital Management helps streamline multiple talent processes and employee data within a unified system.
Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Sime Darby Berhad has successfully deployed Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) in six countries across Asia Pacific. Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, South Korea, Japan, and the Maldives are now live on Workday HCM with a further 13 countries being progressively rolled out.
Sime Darby Berhad is embarking on a human resource (HR) transformation journey to streamline and simplify over 100 processes and systems at the group level. With operations across the Asia Pacific region and a workforce of approximately 22,000 employees, the multinational needs an agile, holistic HR system that provides a complete overview of employee data and transactions anytime, and from anywhere to support its global growth strategy. The organisation was looking for a solution to replace complex legacy systems and provide real-time data to help enable efficient decision making.
By shifting to a cloud-first approach on a unified system that includes Workday Journeys, Workday Payroll, and Workday Cloud Connect for Learning, Sime Darby Berhad is streamlining business processes to enhance employee experience and facilitate employee collaboration across its various divisions and at all levels.
Employees are now able to easily access multiple HR systems and functions, including leave applications, pay slips, and online learning courses from the convenience of their personal mobile devices or laptops. In addition, managers can leverage real-time data analytics to make smarter, more informed decisions regarding talent managemen
As an organisation that always puts its employees first, Sime Darby Berhad has set out to effectively transform its human capital systems through a phased approach that strives to enable a better employee experience as part of a positively engaged workforce.
