About Workday

Our story.

In 2005, software visionaries Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri met for brunch at a Truckee diner, a few miles north of Lake Tahoe. They decided to form a startup—one that would sell cloud-based finance and HR software. The two longtime friends had plenty of experience. Dave founded PeopleSoft in 1987 and served as the company's CEO and board chairman. Aneel held a number of leadership positions at PeopleSoft, including senior vice president of product strategy. On that day in 2005, they resolved to build a company that would revolutionize the enterprise software market. The result is Workday.
