Workday Labs

Creating the future.

At Workday, it’s not about the technology we make – it’s about what that technology makes happen. Through Workday Labs, we foster innovation and creativity, embrace emerging technologies like machine learning, and develop experimental prototypes – all to help our customers solve their most complex challenges.

Don't wait for the future.
Invent it.



Customers share their ideas with us through Workday Community, and then we think, create, and shape the future of work together. And we iterate rapidly to ensure customers’ needs are met.

Research and Projects

Our research philosophy is to start by trying to understand our customers’ challenges. Then we think about how we can give them a better, more efficient, and more productive experience. We can’t talk about everything we’re incubating, but as interesting projects grow, we’ll share them here.

Giving Back

Workday Labs is about more than advancing products and technology. We contribute to open source technology, and we volunteer our time and resources to non-profits. As an example, our engineers volunteered to design PulsePoint’s applications and infrastructure.
