Wanted: Workday Innovators Ready to Learn

Gone are the days of the traditional human resources department.

As one of the world’s largest Workday-certified teams, our people are applying Workday technology solutions to transform finance and human capital management into an information powerhouse.

Our Accenture DayNine practice helps organizations across the globe transform their HR and financial management applications in the cloud—helping them thrive in today’s digital world.

Making the transition to a Workday career may seem daunting given the rigorous certification requirements and the high costs for companies to train and certify new talent.

But as one of Workday’s most experienced and successful deployment partners, Accenture offers unrivaled continuous training and development opportunities. In fact, we are one of only two partners who provide internal training resources in Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Integrations.

How can you advance your skills to build a successful Workday career? Below are five ways to help you stand out:

  1. Leverage your domain expertise. There is a constant need for specific domain expertise in the Workday implementation space. If you have a strong background in any area of HR, explore Workday modules and evaluate which areas align with your background and expertise. Be prepared to discuss your qualifications in a job interview.

  2. Research offerings. Spend time exploring Workday online tutorials and videos that provide insight into the system.

  3. Obtain consulting/implementation experience. Candidates with prior consulting or implementation experience, even in technologies other than Workday, are in high demand.

  4. Maximize your user experience. If your company uses Workday, take part in internal projects and gain as much experience as possible with the system. You can leverage these opportunities as you move into the implementation space.

  5. Stay connected and be proactive. Join Workday online chats, explore social media postings and read Workday blogs to stay current on the latest trends and opportunities.

Join one of the world’s largest Workday-certified teams. Find your fit within our Workday practice at Accenture.
