Elekta lacked a single HR system and was using Excel sheets for record keeping. A head-count report took more than a week to create, and was outdated by the time it was delivered.

Why Workday.

With Workday, Elekta now has a single HCM system that enables faster company-wide standardized HR processes, allowing its colleagues to focus on ensuring that cancer patients worldwide have access to more precise radiotherapy treatments.

We don’t need to spend time considering data accuracy but can instead focus on delivering insights back to the business with reliable data and metrics.


Benefits and results.

Systems consolidation and flexibility.

Prior to Workday, Elekta had several different HR systems that made even simple tasks cumbersome. After deploying Workday, Elekta now benefits from:

  • A single accessible source of HR data
  • Common business processes for the entire workforce
  • Faster data-driven decision-making

Process automation and simplification.

Since 2010, Elekta has grown its employee base by 68 percent. During this period, HR has reduced FTEs while supporting the business by enabling more self-service among managers within people management. Elekta HR has become a more strategic partner to business by centralizing its HR operating model and providing more accurate, real-time analytics.

Organizational agility.

Elekta has reduced the time to integrate an acquisition or complete a divestiture from 6 months to 1 month. As well, Workday has helped improve the time required to implement organizational changes by 66 percent by enabling faster uploads of employee profiles and the ability to visualize organizational charts.

Reduced time for org changes by 8 weeks

Shortened acquisition integrations from 6 months to 1

Talent management.

Prior to Workday, talent was managed largely outside the system, impacting Elekta’s ability to scale across the organization. Now, Elekta is able to effectively manage the goals and performance for 100 percent of its employees, and can easily track back with more visibility company-wide.
