Life Time streamlines business management and empowers employees.

“Workday offers a seamless user experience. Its efficiencies make it possible to support and evolve the software with a lean team.” – Director, Workday Operations and Process Improvements


Gained scalability and flexibility with a unified platform

Managed continuous, high-volume recruiting in Workday

Eliminated manual finance and HR tasks

Reduced payroll processing from 48 hours to less than 1


Before Workday, Life Time used multiple costly and inefficient applications. With 38,000 employees, it needed a better system. Business processes were slow and paper-intensive, with little integration between finance and HR. This fast-growing company faced rapidly changing compliance requirements, had an overly complex general ledger and lacked scalability.

Why Workday.

Life Time initially deployed several Workday applications and more recently added Workday Prism Analytics. Each of the Workday tools changes an important area of the business for the better and, as part of the integrated Workday system, they all help Life Time attain a new level of employee productivity.

Change is the only constant here. Workday helps us achieve our goals for different business entities in an easier manner by making it possible to support changing requirements with great flexibility.

Rapid error resolution with data-driven insight.

After deploying Workday and using its capabilities for fuelling intelligence with data, Life Time noticed a dramatic improvement in accounting.

Life Time is looking forward to broadening the use of the machine learning functionality and other data insight features in the Workday applications to generate greater efficiencies. The company also expects to take advantage of the application in attracting and retaining talent with the right mix of skills.

Resolved accounting errors in 30 minutes instead of 1 day

The machine learning capabilities in Workday give us time back and provide journal insights. A process that used to take us as long as a day can now just be a 30-minute refresh of a report.
