We live up to our standards for business conduct.

Our Codes of Conduct set the highest standards for ethical conduct for our employees, board members, and contractors as well as anyone doing business with us or on our behalf. We’re committed to keeping our business ethical, responsible, and honest.


The Codes of Conduct may be updated or changed without prior notice at the discretion of Workday. When determining current requirements, you should always access the current online version, and not rely on earlier versions.


We do right by the rules and by people.

Workday is committed to following all applicable global regulations, including corruption laws and trade laws. The success of our business comes from offering best-in-class products and services, not from corrupt or illegal practices.

Workday prohibits corrupt payments of all kinds, including bribery, kickbacks, or facilitating payments. Corrupt behavior undermines the values on which our company is built, the principles of fair competition, and the rule of law. We expect our business partners to share our commitment to integrity, and if we see signs that a representative is unethical or could be engaging in corrupt conduct, we prohibit doing business with them.

As a company, we do not and will not tolerate violations of our standards and policies. Through our anti-corruption compliance program, we promote compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act, and other anti-corruption laws around the world. Our Anti-corruption Policy provides the guidelines and principles to help directors, officers, and employees worldwide uphold our anti-corruption commitment, and our compliance program is designed to prevent, detect, and fix compliance issues.

We have a robust third-party due diligence screening program, covering partners, suppliers, agents, lobbyists, and other third parties.   We include anti-corruption terms and conditions in our contracts with third parties and require our third parties to acknowledge our Partner Code of Conduct or Supplier Code of Conduct. Workday has a dedicated internal corporate investigations team that investigates allegations of bribery and corruption.

Anti-Corruption Policy

Workday believes in the fundamental dignity of every human being and in respecting individual rights. As we conduct business around the world, we are committed to respecting human rights.

Modern Slavery

Workday upholds the highest moral, ethical, and legal standards in all we do, and Integrity is a Workday core value. This includes ensuring that crimes that violate fundamental human rights, including slavery, unlawful child labor, servitude, debt bondage, forced labor, forced marriage, deceptive recruiting for labor or services, and human trafficking (collectively, “Modern Slavery”) are not taking place in our workplace or in our supply chain. These crimes take various forms, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Workday has zero tolerance for any form of Modern Slavery in our business, and we are fully committed to preventing and detecting it. Workday is also committed to transparency in our business activities and throughout our supply chain. Our efforts to combat all forms of modern slavery and human trafficking are detailed in Workday’s Statement Against Modern Slavery.
