Workday offers payroll software for the U.S., Canada, the UK, and France. If you have a workforce in other countries, we enable you to integrate with any provider around the world. Our certified integrations allow you to blend Workday and third-party payroll data to seamlessly report on your global workforce.

One system for your hire-to-pay process.

With Workday, all HR transactions go straight to payroll—so you can stop reconciling data or waiting for integrations to run. The result? Fewer manual processes and more time saved.

We were looking for a single source of truth and a system that could be employee-facing, and we found that in Workday.

Take control of your data, processes, and cost.

Our powerful yet easy-to-use calculation engine enables you to handle even the most complex payroll requirements with ease.

  • Run calculations and reports for an individual or a group of workers at any time.
  • Make changes without relying on IT or a payroll service provider.

With Workday Payroll we own the entire process. We’re processing the payroll, we’re auditing it, we’re signing off that we feel it’s complete and accurate.

Flexibility in the face of change.

Easily configure Workday Payroll to address organizational needs, new regulations, and policies.

  • Stay on top of tax changes with a compliance dashboard and auto-updates delivered through the cloud.
  • Model and execute policy, process, and organizational changes.

What we love about Workday is that it’s not a roadblock to change, but an enabler to help us manage change effectively.

Insight you can act on.

Drill into payroll results for any worker or period and give your employees insight into their pay with the Employee Pay dashboard.

  • Set up always-on audits to flag and resolve problems.
  • View your general ledger journal lines before payroll completes.
  • Get accurate, real-time labor actuals for your global workforce.
  • Manage your year-end process and monitor year-over year-trends with the year-end dashboard.

We realized that what we would gain from Workday, like predictive analytics and reporting, would be optimized if we had Workday Payroll.

Always-on payroll.

With Workday, you can continuously recalculate as payroll-impacting events occur, boosting efficiency and performance. Plus, with smart retro and smart audits at your command, you get faster payroll results and deeper insights.




I love having control of my payroll.
