Aldo’s inflexible back-office systems were unable to support business needs. Having experienced rapid growth on a global scale, the company eventually outgrew its rigid legacy environment.
Aldo wanted a global solution that offered scalability, talent management capabilities and comprehensive insights into the company and its people. In 2015, Aldo unanimously selected Workday, ensuring it would have a scalable suite of applications to support growth.
Benefits and results.
Aldo transitioned from an on-premise legacy system with manual touchpoints to a single cloud-native solution. The HR IS/IT role has evolved from system maintenance and report creation to strategic projects and innovation. Aldo now realises ease of use, better performance, and scalability, and reduced risk of downtime and non-compliance in areas such as GDPR and tax legislation.

Reporting and insight.
Leaders and managers are equipped with comprehensive, real-time and actionable insight into their people.

Existing employees use a one-stop, self-service tool to initiate and execute HR tasks, reducing the burden on HR.
