Google deepens investment in Workday

Google has strengthened its partnership with Workday by investing in additional Workday products to support its global workforce.

Google has subscribed to Workday Adaptive Planning, Workday Extend, Workday Prism Analytics and Workday Strategic Sourcing. As part of its ongoing investment in talent management strategies, Google will also expand its current use of Workday HCM, adding new applications to deliver an enhanced employee experience, drive talent optimisation, personalised journeys and suggested learning, and further streamline its HR management operations.

The announcement follows the news last month of a multi-year partnership agreement between the two companies, that saw Workday enterprise applications become available on the Google cloud platform.

Arvind KC, vice president of corporate engineering for people operations at Google, said: “We are excited about our partnership with Workday. They are the backbone of our HCM suite and have been consistently innovating in this space. Talent development is critical to Google’s success, and we look forward to strengthening our partnership with Workday to build the best product suite for addressing our people needs.”

David Somers, group general manager, office of the CHRO at Workday, added: “In today’s evolving world of work, organisations like Google are investing in technologies that can adapt and scale with their business at an accelerated pace. Workday uniquely offers customers the ability to plan, execute, analyse, and extend in a single system, which is why customers like Google continue to increase their footprint with Workday as they advance their digital initiatives.”
