Automating analyses means teams work smarter not harder
The solution was integrated on time and under budget. HR resources in Canada now spend less time on day-to-day transactional steps and more time on strategic HR work, such as planning new HR initiatives, allowing the teams to work smarter not harder by minimizing the burden of manual processes. The client is now getting the most from the deployment of an “all-in-one” integrated solution to handle benefits, payroll, and absences.
The Workday cloud-based platform has also allowed the company to establish consistent processes and reporting across its businesses. Benefits include:
- Reducing payroll processing time
- Automating compensation plans, benefits processes, continuation of benefits, and pensions calculations—which were previously performed manually
- Customizing processes to accommodate tax differences from one province to another
- Pulling data into one system, allowing for accurate, real time reporting, for instance on who is on continuation, who is retired, etc
There is also greater policy consistency between affiliates, more HR data and analytics, and a single system for all HR functions.
