As part of their efforts to streamline their HR system and services, a medical research foundation wanted to replace its existing HR system with Workday. The rollout would enable both HR and payroll systems to be combined and help reduce the amount of dual information being processed, improve governance of payroll and ultimately reduce payroll and business risk. The company planned to deploy several features of Workday in the first phase of the rollout, including Core HR, Absence and Workday Payroll.
