Workday chosen buy Asda

Asda has chosen Workday for its internal people management and will keep an eye on its 140,000 global employees.

The software company was chosen as part of the supermarket’s ongoing digital transformation, as it works to separate its systems from Walmart’s after being bought by the Issa brothers in 2020.

The Workday systems used by Asda will include Workday Human Capital Management, Workday Absence Management, Workday Benefits, Workday Compensation, Workday Learning, Workday Prism Analytics and Workday Recruiting.

Asda chief people officer Hayley Tatum said: “Workday will provide employees with the tools to learn and develop new skills relevant to their roles while helping us to sharpen team and business performance. Workday’s agile technology architecture means that we’ll be able to take on tomorrow’s challenges, helping to ensure that our colleagues have the support they need.”
