Organizations across the globe continue to face significant challenges in attracting,  supporting, and retaining talent amid a tight labour market and evolving employee  expectations.

With Workday HCM, customers can: 

Elevate Experiences with New Innovations in Skills and Employee Engagement. • Organizations are prioritizing skills insight and development as the workforce  becomes more agile. To support this and build on the success of Skills Cloud, which  is included in Workday HCM and leverages machine learning (ML) to maintain skills  data, Workday recently introduced new technology that allows organizations to easily  and securely bring skills data in and out of Workday. In doing so, organizations can  gain deeper insight into workforce skills to help deliver more personalized  development recommendations and nurture career growth. 

In addition, to gain a holistic view of employee engagement across the business,  global organizations are using Workday Peakon Employee Voice to give employees  a confidential platform to share honest feedback about their experience,  expectations, and health and well-being. Organizations can then use these insights  to take meaningful, tangible actions that help to enhance the employee experience.

Support Various Types of Workers with Unified Workforce Management Solutions. • The shift in workforce composition is driving many organizations to develop a holistic  workforce strategy that supports various worker types. Following the acquisition of  VNDLY, Workday will provide organizations with a comprehensive solution that helps  manage salaried, hourly, contingent, and outsourced workers. 

Workday also provides innovations to support frontline workers, managers, and  operations leaders, including Workday Scheduling and Labour Optimization, a  worker-first scheduling solution that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to match  labour demands with worker preferences. It is part of a unified workforce optimization  offering that includes Absence Management, Payroll, Talent Management, and Time  Tracking to help organizations more easily attract, engage, and retain talent all in one  system. 

Leverage Reporting and Analytics Tools to Understand Workforce Trends. • Organizations need deeper visibility into their workforce and real-time data to help  them make faster decisions that support the business. Workday People  Analytics uses AI and augmented analytics to help customers better understand the  trends of their workforce, including DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) efforts,  retention and attrition, hiring, skills, and performance – and the drivers behind them.
