Challenges
  • As Mohawk moves aggressively into emerging markets, it needed an HR system that could strategically cultivate talent while keeping costs in line
  • 10-year-old legacy ERP system had minimal employee self-service capabilities and very rudimentary self-service capabilities for managers
  • Data was hard to get to, hard to report out, and difficult to get into the hands of executives
  • Highly manual and paper-based environment

Solutions
  • Workday Human Capital Management
  • Employees can readily access their own personal information and make changes to their own data, which saves HR staff time
  • Provides regular updates, so software is never out of date and IT resources can be freed up for other projects

Results
  • Implemented at a third of the cost and a third of the time as an on-premise solution
  • Visibility into where Mohawk is spending, where resources can be shifted to better align with production manufacturing, and what the impact is on the bottom line
  • With improved talent management, ability to be more capable of identifying opportunities and people that can take advantage of those opportunities
  • HR staff can become a workforce authority and function more strategically
