PLEASANTON, Calif. and ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced at Workday Rising, the company's annual customer conference, a range of new innovations and initiatives designed to help support customers in the changing world of work. These include new capabilities to help elevate the office of finance, ways to create more personalized employee experiences, and establishing a more open and connected Workday to help companies adapt and thrive in today's dynamic environment.
According to a recent McKinsey Global Survey on digital strategy and investments, nine in 10 C-level and senior leaders say their organizations have pursued at least one large-scale digital transformation in the past two years. This underscores the importance of technology in helping organizations meet the rapidly evolving needs of their workforce and business.
"Whether it's planning for the unknown, supporting employees in new working models, or embracing technologies that deliver the insights needed to drive the business forward, our customers have navigated an immense amount of change over the last few years and technology has played a critical role in enabling them to adapt," said Pete Schlampp, chief strategy officer, Workday. "With customer service as a core value, our focus has and will always be on supporting our customers through innovation to meet their needs today and in the future."

Supporting More Personalized Employee Experiences to Help Drive Engagement
Employees who feel heard and supported are more engaged and productive, which is why organizations need to prioritize experiences that help employees feel a sense of connection and opportunity.
According to a new Workday report, Addressing Burnout Risk in 2022, the scale of higher burnout risk has increased since 2021 across many frontline industries, highlighting the need for employers to pay greater attention to the needs of their employees and take action to support them.
To help support customers with creating more personalized experiences, Workday announced new innovations to help them gain richer insight into the skills of their workforce with a more open and connected skills ecosystem so that they can make more informed talent decisions and deliver meaningful employee experiences.
