Sanofi Selects Workday Human Capital Management 
Global Healthcare Leader Replaces Several Legacy Systems With One,
Unified HCM Cloud Application 
PLEASANTON, CA and PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 10/23/13 -- 
Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications
for human resources and finance, today announced that Sanofi
(EURONEXT PARIS: SAN) (NYSE: SNY), a global integrated healthcare
leader with operations in more than 100 countries, has selected
Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). Sanofi plans to consolidate
several on-premise legacy software systems with one unified
application in the cloud.  
In an increasingly competitive global industry, Sanofi deployed a new
strategy that repositioned the company for continued growth by
focusing its efforts on research and development, market
diversification, and new areas of investment. The company understood
that the success of repositioning the business for future growth
would require that the entire organization was properly aligned and
focused against these objectives. To meet this need, Sanofi's human
resources (HR) function embarked on a transformation strategy to
create a new operating and service delivery model that would best
support the business and global workforce. 
Following an internal review of the technology requirements necessary
to support its HR transformation, Sanofi identified the need for a
truly global and integrated application; one that would remove
complexity associated with its current processes and systems
diversity and at the same time would propose a new, flexible and more
effective way for HR to interact with managers and employees.  
With Workday HCM, Sanofi expects to replace a number of large HR
applications with one unified cloud-based HCM application for core HR
and talent management for the entire company. With Workday Talent
Management, Sanofi expects to offer its managers more visibility on
the strengths and talents of employees so that they can access wider
pools of potential candidates for key roles in support of the
expected future growth of the company. Furthermore, Sanofi expects to
create and integrate new global processes to reduce time and effort
spent by HR on administrative tasks, take advantage of analytics for
more informed and s
trategic decision-making among the HR
organization, and empower managers and employees with greater
self-service capabilities delivered in an intuitive user experience.

application that will provide deep visibility into its workforce and
