Workday for Associates

Reviewed on 06/01/2022

Pros

I use Workday pretty much every day, from inputting needed information for HR to filling out my Associate check-ins and End of Year Review. The software has a great front end and is generally easy to navigate; what you cannot find directly, you can search for at the top (search bar)

Cons

There are a few times when it is not quite as easy to find a particular item in Workday; fortunately the search bar helps. I would like to see a more intuitive front end.

Useful hub

Reviewed on 21/12/2021

Pros

Provides a useful central hub for HR-related matters (payslips, mandatory training, booking time off).

Cons

Having to log in via Microsoft Authenticator every time (NB: this may depend on how the software has been set up & not be everyone's experience...).

Workday

Reviewed on 07/10/2021

Pros

Generally quite intutitve and the dashboard allows you to find what you need. I.e. the recruiting dashboard tile brings you to all of your open & assigned requisition. Depending on how your organisation has set up your options, you can easily navigate around to find your personal details, performance review, time off and create new requisitions.

Cons

There are far too many clicks and the reporting is very limited & overly complicated. The Workflow is far too complicated and there are too many steps, which can make the system extremely complicated and hard for the average user to understand how to complete simple tasks e.g. creating a new requisition, transferring a colleague into another manager etc.

Simple, effective, & user friendly

Reviewed on 21/12/2021

Pros

The most impacted process for our company was having the ability to house many of our processes into one system. We have effective and efficient processes now using one system instead of several to achieve the same goal.

Cons

There are times the system lags and can be slow
