After the City of Akron was hacked in 2019, its technology mindset changed to push for more innovative thought processes. Not only did moving its finance, payroll, and HR systems to the cloud establish a higher level of security, but the migration to Workday also led to a culture shift with employees accessing data themselves and communicating across departments.
With Workday, the City of Akron:
- Eliminated roadblocks to communication and collaboration, helping departments to work more efficiently
- Gave employees access to real-time data and improved business processes
- Scaled for growth and provided employees with better access to analyze accurate data
- Supported citizens more effectively
With Workday, our finance department is in a better position than ever to empower our managers to get the information they need out of the system.
