Marel gains transparency and speed by deploying a single HR system.

With Workday, Marel gains global visibility into its workforce, empowering leaders to answer critical questions in minutes.


data accuracy achieved for the first time


systems and 200+ spreadsheets replaced


weeks to 3 minutes for head-count reporting time


Before Workday, Marel didn’t have a core HR system; it used various local point solutions, Excel spreadsheets and manual processes. Finding basic information, such as its total number of employees, was difficult.

When a new, data-oriented CEO came onboard, Marel decided that it needed one simpler, smarter and faster HR system for its global organization. The company was also looking for a system that would help it design and roll out new HR policies and programmes related to talent management, workforce planning, employee engagement, HR technology and processes. After evaluating solutions, it chose Workday.

Workday has been a real lifesaver for us. Workday has a 98% customer satisfaction rate and we are definitely part of that group of happy customers.
