"We've always held the belief that a happy, motivated workforce will do great things for customers," said Aneel Bhusri, co-founder and CEO, Workday. "We continue to see the reward of this employee-first focus in our company culture and customer satisfaction rating that are competitive differentiators for Workday.

This survey asks questions related to employees' attitudes about management's credibility, overall job satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit©, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.
