Western Union operated a complex global network of disparate, on-premise, rigid HR applications with limited users. HR teams had multiple information sources, excessive transactions, and a lagging capability set.
Western Union sought an integrated, cloud-native solution and now benefits from one source of truth with the data, insights, and capabilities required to support business decisions, regulatory changes, and growth.
Benefits and results.
Benefits include a single system of record for global people data, a modern cloud-based tool, and consistent user experience, as well as enhanced employee and manager self-service, role-based security, always-on audit, system-driven processes, real-time analytics, and robust integrations. Eliminated costly third-party support and upgrade expenses.

Improved user experience and increased transparency.
Western Union couldn’t deliver a consistent user experience due to disparate systems and processes. With Workday, the company can now provide an intuitive experience and is realizing improved adoption. Using the business process framework in Workday, Western Union removed paper processes with visibility into transactional details and configurable eligibility rules.
