Forward-looking initiatives for a better employee experience in a new world of work The

COVID-19 pandemic created challenges in terms of retaining staff and productivity, and subsequent hybrid work models have led organizations to introduce technologies to better support their workforce. This has become a priority for HR managers and information managers who want to give their employees – many of whom now spend most of the day in a digital work environment – the best possible experience. Workday Everywhere enables a boundless experience where employees can access Workday from a wide range of environments, including collaboration tools, intranets, applications and platforms for employee experiences such as Microsoft Viva.

With Workday, CHROs and CIOs can work together to create more effective experiences that are tailored to individual needs and flexible enough to adapt to changing conditions.

Customers who use Workday Everywhere also benefit from the following:

  • Improved productivity and well-being of employees. Using machine learning (ML) for personification and predictions, Workday Everywhere provides the right information, tasks, insights and recommendations to employees when they need them – as well as insights into what actions may be needed or what factors require attention at any given moment. For example, an employee may receive a proactive notice if he or she has not taken time off in the past six months, with a suggestion to consider a break or vacation, to promote well-being and commitment at work.
  • More efficiency for greater engagement. Employees can access Workday data and data – anywhere, anytime – without having to leave the digital workplace, intranet, or collaboration tool they use. For example, a person can take a photo from a mobile device of a receipt and then submit it to Workday while he or she is in the Slack interface.
  • Easy and secure integration. Workday Everywhere is easy to install and enables CIOs to easily integrate Workday into their existing IT ecosystem. All data is transferred between Workday and the user with the same security and data protection standards that customers expect from Workday applications.
