Meijer’s HR technology fostered inefficient, inconsistent business processes companywide. Furthermore, its multiple systems and custom bolt-on applications had rigid workflows and limited self-service and reporting capabilities.
By adopting Workday, Meijer gains one system and one source of truth for consolidating HR systems, standardizing processes, and automating workflows. Easy-to-use, highly flexible tools simplify configuration, enable self-service reporting, and support mobile devices and desktops.
Benefits and results.
Gained flexible systems.
Meijer consolidated its systems and applications into a single, flexibly configured HR system. It shifted partial ownership of the system from IT to HR, formed an agile HR support team, and sped up internal responses while moving to a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.
Improved organizational management.
Meijer set up consistent, simplified business processes across stores and supply chain facilities, which helps streamline new store creation. It also extended self-service system capabilities to managers and team members, so managers can initiate and execute key business transactions.
