PLEASANTON, CALIF. – May 24, 2010 – The San Francisco Business Times named Workday Best Business Application in its inaugural Technology and Innovation Awards.
Workday emerged a winner in the private company category, as judged by local CEOs and a panel of the San Francisco Business Times′ editorial and reporting staff. Founded by PeopleSoft veterans Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri in 2005, Workday, Inc. now has more than 450 employees and 140 customers. In just a few short years, the company has established itself as the leader in enterprise-class Human Resources, Financial and Payroll solutions delivered via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
“We started Workday five years ago to change enterprise software,” said Aneel Bhusri, Workday co-CEO. “Traditional business software is built on a technology base more than 20 years old. Workday is a fresh, modern alternative for companies looking to replace their traditional hard-to-use systems. We thank the San Francisco Business Times for recognizing Workday among the many, many business applications born in the bay area.”
Workday has also earned a spot on the San Francisco Business Times’ Best Places to Work in the Bay Area list for the past three consecutive years, based on employees’ ratings of work environment and corporate culture.
