WalkMe for Workday: The Complete HCM Adoption Solution

By Tamara Rosin
WalkMe for Workday is a one-stop solution for improving your Workday training, adoption, and productivity. Today, HR platforms such as Workday are becoming more critical to organizational health and effectiveness. At the same time, adopting these platforms can be a challenge.  Enterprise tools can be complex and they continually evolve, requiring employers and employees both to evolve with them.

The problem: How can you maximize Workday productivity and efficiency?

Workday is a leading HCM system, used by medium and large organizations around the world. It offers a wide range of features for HR, including:
  • Human resource management
  • Employee learning solutions
  • Recruitment and talent management
  • A single system that unifies HCM with finance and payroll
  • Compensation and benefits 
  • Insights and data that can help you improve the entire employee life cycle
Just to name just a few. This complex feature set offers significant advantages for the modern HR department – but only if you take full advantage of them. As with every enterprise-grade digital platform, Workday comes with a learning curve. Its wide breadth of capabilities is a major strength, but it can also be a barrier to successful employee adoption. The more processes there are to master, the more difficult onboarding can be.  To earn a full return on a Workday investment, your business must ensure that:
  • Employees are fully engaged and using the platform
  • Workday features are being adopted and used to their fullest extent
  • Training for Workday is efficient and effective
What’s the right approach to achieving these objectives?

The solution: Reinventing employee engagement

walkme for workdayTo make full use of powerful tools such as Workday, businesses must take a new approach.  One that…
  • Engages employees 
  • Simplifies the user experience
  • Decreases the burden on technical support and training
  • Lowers error rates and inefficiencies
  • Increases feature adoption
  • Shortens time-to-competency
Achieving these goals doesn’t require extensive training. In fact, training overload would only increase financial burdens, time spent away from work, and a greater cognitive load. It could also very easily increase user frustration and burnout. Given the complex nature of today’s digital workplace, it is clear that we need another solution. One that offers a seamless employee experience while still delivering the benefits of in-depth training.
