PLEASANTON, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) --
04/08/14 -- Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud
applications for global human resources and finance, today announced
that easyJet plc (LSE: EZJ), one of Europe's leading airlines, has
selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). With Workday's
unified application for human resources (HR) in the cloud, easyJet
plans to enhance talent management practices and modernize reporting
and analytics capabilities, while delivering to its rapidly growing
employee base of 8,000 an intuitive, easy-to-use HR application that
can be accessed from mobile devices.
As the UK's largest and Europe's fourth largest airline, easyJet
flies on almost 700 routes to more than 130 airports across 34
countries and has the leading presence among Europe's top 100 routes.
Last year, the company flew more than 60 million passengers while
maintaining a leading European network that focuses on making travel
easy and affordable for customers and delivering a friendly and
efficient service at a low cost. In a highly competitive market where
price and service are critical drivers of growth, easyJet continually
looks for opportunities to simplify systems and processes and
identify and optimize the talent responsible for delivering great
easyJet's workforce has grown from a few hundred employees to several
thousand in a relatively short period of time. This is due in part to
the company culture, which is an essential component of the airline's
strategy to recruit talent that will deliver high levels of customer
service. With Workday HCM, easyJet will benefit from a cloud
application that unifies core HR and talent management, delivering a
seamless experience from the onboarding process that helps employees
integrate into the culture quickly all the way through succession
planning to help manage the most essential jobs in the organization.
Workday performance management tools will help easyJet manage its
talent globally, developing a common language for performance and
creating greater transparency across its workforce.
In addition, since Workday analytics are built into the core of the
application, easyJet will gain access to meaningful insights around
key indicators such as cost, capacity, and capability of its
workforce, helping to drive hiring and sourcing decisions throughout
the organization. Further, easyJet will be able to access a variety
of reports, which are configurable to the needs of the business and
delivered through dynamic dashboards that will speed up
decision-making and reduce the reliance on IT for support.
Delivered through the cloud via any mobile device, Workday HCM was
built for ease of use with an intuitive user experience that will
enable easyJet employees and managers, who are regularly traveling
between countries and airports, to quickly update key personal data
or access reports to help them be more productive. Self-service
capabilities within Workday will put important processes, such as
maintaining personal information, requesting time off, and managing
performance reviews, in the hands of its employees.
