Prior to Workday, Avon had many disparate systems, limited accountability of data, outdated manual processes and inconsistent definitions of data fields. As a result, gathering accurate data quickly and easily was a challenge.
The Workday global platform enabled Avon to gain end-to-end employee lifecycle visibility, drive HR process efficiency and increase the visibility of and ability to act on data.
Benefits and results.
Systems consolidation and flexibility/scalability.
With Workday, Avon greatly simplified its system architecture by eliminating licences for more than 50 systems and reducing integrations and systems support.
Systems consolidation: 50+ systems to 1
By standardising processes, Avon is better able to drive transactional consistency across the business. This led to greater efficiency and scalability for HR, as well as for managers across the organisation. HR can now focus on more strategic projects that impact the business.
Managers spent 1 hour less per week on HR tasks, saving $10M
Data integrity and decision support.
With Workday, Avon can now deliver real-time, relevant and accurate data to decision makers in areas such as org modelling, succession planning and employee performance.
Elevated talent management tools in Workday have helped Avon increase its focus on employees through global performance reviews, a strong link and causal relationship between performance and compensation, and talent programmes.
