What we do

Hello, Workday. Goodbye status quo. Workday’s enterprise cloud applications for finance and HR are disrupting the global software industry. Our applications are infinitely flexible, extremely intuitive, and incredibly powerful. Workday is aimed squarely at replacing legacy on-premise systems that can’t keep pace with innovation.

But that’s only part of the story.

The rest of the story is about our values, our people, our passion, and our way of running a business. Read on to learn more about what Workday is all about.

Our core values

Our core values give us a framework for leadership and daily decisions, and help us enjoy our time at work. Sounds so simple, but too often companies get caught up in politics, ivory-tower attitudes, and market mania instead of focusing on the things that probably made them successful in the first place.

The following core values and beliefs define what’s important to us at Workday:


Most fundamentally, people are the core of our business. Without them, we would not have a business. We hire the best and expect great accomplishments.

Customer service

Every investment and decision we make has our customers in mind, and we pull out all the stops to make the satisfaction of our customers paramount.


We aim for innovation not only in our development organisation but also in the way we approach all aspects of our business.


We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We stick to our commitments, treat everyone equitably, and communicate openly and honestly.


We also feel it’s important to have a sense of humour. We like to laugh – it makes our work that much more enjoyable. We also invest in community and company events that help our employees and their families feel a connection to Workday beyond business as usual.


Long-term economic success is what helps us provide employees and customers with the best productivity tools, solutions, and services. While important, profitability is not why we exist. Simply put, at Workday, we exist to make and provide great products and services.
