Our Story and Leadership

We’re shaking up the world
of enterprise software.

We started by asking questions.

Why is enterprise software so hard to use? What do businesses need to support change? And how can we give people more time back for what really matters?

Workday employees collaborating.

We listened to the answers.

Our curiosity led us to create something new—a finance, HR, and planning system that evolves as business evolves, and a company that’s out to do right by employees, customers, and the world.

Workday employees.

And we haven’t stopped since.

We partner closely with our customers to understand their needs. Then we innovate like crazy to give them the technology to get there. Together, we’re shaping the future of work.
