Workday and ADP have announced an extended partnership to provide an enhanced global payroll, compliance and HR experience for both companies’ customers.

The extension of its partnership with the tech and human capital management (HCM) company was announced at Workday’s annual customer conference, Workday Rising.

Workday and ADP plan to continue building on their decade-long relationship and will aim to provide a streamlined experience for payroll administrators and improve the overall experience for customers.

Together they hope to develop more seamless interactions between Workday and ADP systems and enhance deeper customer visibility into data across their HCM environment.

Maria Black, president and CEO, ADP, said: “We are laser-focused on providing smart, easy, and powerful solutions that help our clients confidently achieve their goals, and enhanced integrations provide the personalization we know they desire. This deeper partnership with Workday builds on our long-standing relationship to provide a technology-first experience across our shared clients’ entire HCM suite.”

According to a recent ADP Potential of Payroll study, navigating disjointed HR and payroll systems has become an increased concern for companies. The study showed that 94 percent of global organizations agreed that they would like to see integration across all of their systems. Meanwhile, according to the study, survey respondents estimated they spent an average of 22 hours per week, per country, managing the data flow between these systems.

Carl Eschenbach, co-CEO, Workday, said: “This expanded partnership with ADP is an exciting next step in a journey spanning over ten years of jointly servicing one million employees and thousands of customers. By deepening the partnership between our two companies, we are better equipped to expand our global reach and serve our joint customers’ ever-evolving needs.”

The expanded partnership with ADP is one of many announcements made at Workday Rising, including a new Workday AI Marketplace and a series of new AI and ML capabilities and partner ecosystem updates.
