Workday Launches New Insight Application and Professional Services Suite

Workday, Inc. has announced the availability of Workday Talent Insights and Workday Professional Services Automation, or PSA. Workday Talent Insights is the first application available as part of Workday Insight Applications, a product suite that applies data science and machine learning methods to help customers make smarter financial and people management decisions. With Workday Talent Insights, customers can confidently tackle talent-related challenges such as identifying a top performer at risk of leaving the company or pinpointing issues with hiring initiatives that could impact business performance. Workday PSA blends Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) functionality to set a new standard in professional services automation for organizations that manage client-facing billable projects. With Workday PSA, customers can optimize project performance with one system that delivers insights and analytics regarding people, revenue, spend, and profitability. Last fall, Workday unveiled its vision for the next phase of enterprise applications built on an intelligent technology foundation that equips customers with insights, predictions, and recommendations to solve complex business problems. The focal point of this vision is Workday Insight Applications, a suite of applications that Workday is designing with input from a diverse group of customers including 3M, Broward College, Dell, and Ryan. The first Workday Insight Application Workday Talent Insights complements and extends the people management capabilities in Workday HCM, equipping customers with: Predictive Insights to Prevent Retention Problems; Scorecards to Track, Collaborate, and Take Action on Metrics that Matter; and An Intelligent Foundation that Learns Over Time. As competition for talent rises across industries, organizations are seeking better ways to identify and retain top performers in the near-term as well as make broader changes to reduce voluntary terminations over time. With this in mind, Workday has delivered Retention Risk Analysis, which uncovers trends in historical data about turnover in order to yield predictive insights that help decision-makers analyze, answer, and act on questions. With an interactive dashboard, customers can quickly identify and understand retention risk for the entire organization or a specific department, including the number of top performers at a high risk of leaving in the next year and the projected cost to replace them. Additionally, they can identify the top risk factors unique to their organization or department -- such as time in current job function, number of locations, number of job functions held, or time between promotions. They can also pinpoint which departments, job types, or teams are at the high risk across the organization. Scorecards arm decision-makers with interactive snapshots of the metrics they depend on to understand how workforce and organizational performance are impacting business goals. With Workday's configurable framework, customers can personalize scorecards to any key performance indicator or business initiative for anyone in the organization.
