Siemens Convergence Creators Selects Workday to Modernise HR Organisation for Future Growth
Global Communication Technologies Company Begins New Era with Greater Agility, Speed, and Workforce Visibility
PLEASANTON, CA and VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - Workday, Inc. (
Siemens Convergence Creators wanted one global, modern HR system that could adapt with growth and change, engage the entire organisation, and provide deeper visibility into its workforce, which spans across 10 countries.
With Workday, Siemens Convergence Creators plans to:
- Create one global people management system, enabling management to work with a single source of truth about its workforce, such as headcount, for accurate planning and decision-making.
- Access analytics that provide greater insight into employee skill sets and capability gaps to help support planning for customer projects. With Workday, the company will be able to leverage a unified search framework to easily identify employees who may fill those gaps. For example, employees who speak French and have specific technical skills.
- Standardise HR processes worldwide, streamlining operations for growth and increasing efficiencies throughout the business. Siemens Convergence Creators will easily be able to configure business processes, such as workflows, and make changes as business needs evolve, and compliance needs change.
- Empower employees with greater mobile capabilities using a simple, intuitive interface, giving them the ability to access information and take action from anywhere and at any time. For example, employees will be able to submit time and absence requests directly from their mobile phones.
- Leverage continuous innovation from Workday's development on a single code line delivered in the cloud.
