Getting full value from technology

We’ve been helping clients bring Workday’s capabilities to life for more than a decade. And our teams have extensive expertise in all the areas the technology touches, from target operating models, business processes and taxation to risk assurance and change management. That means you’ll get the breadth and depth of skills you need to make Workday fit seamlessly into your business functions and lift your performance.

We’ve also implemented Workday in our own operations around the world. That gives us extra insight not just to help develop the product but to make sure it works in the way that’s best for your busines.

How we can help

Transforming HR

We’ll make Workday’s Human Capital Management technology the heart of managing, recruiting and developing the people you need for a successful transformation. It helps HR support your business’s strategy, helps you get the most from your people and gives them the kind of experience that keeps them engaged. Our expertise across technology and business makes HCM more than just a way to access HR data. It’s a tool to energise your people function and processes, and help you plan your future.

Financial management

Workday's Financial Management solution helps the finance function keep pace with the business and stay in tune with your industry. It gives you the real-time data, insight and reporting to make more informed decisions for better results. And it helps you run finance operations more efficiently, from billing and reconciliation to procurement and expenses. We understand the technology but also how Finance works. And we’re experts in tax, accounting, controls, risk and compliance, deals and more.So we can help you use Workday to turn Finance into a function that creates value, with more time analysing data rather than compiling it.


We have helped organisations who have implemented Workday HCM to transform their end to end payroll operation through a mix of insight and expertise, leading edge technology and high quality payroll delivery services:

  • In house, in country payroll manged payroll services. We have PwC payroll teams operating in 150 countries around the world - payroll specialists who are trained, qualified and experienced and who work along side their employment tax, global mobility, HR and legal teams;
  • Global payroll management and coordination team – a team of payroll, project management and operation management specialists - all of who have helped clients transform their global payroll through a mix of standardisation, integration and automation;
  • The Global Payroll Platform – Our global payroll workflow, case and performance management tool, integrates with Workday and other leading systems.

PwC are a certified Workday Global Payroll Partner.


With over a decade as a Workday partner, we’re experienced across all the technology’s capabilities, and the business functions and issues they relate to. That puts us in an ideal position to bring you everything Workday has to offer in one solution. HCM, Financial Management, Payroll, and Planning and Analytics come together in a single integrated package – and we can also include your existing applications.

Planning and analytics

Workday Adaptive Planning (WAP)’s planning and forecasting capability that gives everyone involved a common view of the data that matters, updated in real time.

It helps you bring as many people into the process as you want, from anywhere and on any device. And you can manage the collaboration smoothly so you get the most from everyone’s contribution.

Prism Analytics helps you make sense of your organisation’s data for clearer reporting and better decision making. It also brings in data from outside and integrates it with your own for a deeper, richer picture of where the business is and where it could go.

Employee Experience

It’s time to start thinking differently about your employees; the mindset, behaviours and composition of your workforce are changing.

Business demands and employees needs are evolving, making it crucial to create a culture centered around employee experiences, enabling you to design for those moments that truly matter to employees, removing barriers and driving adoption of new technology, processes or behaviours.

Experience-led transformation is the future. Designing experiences for your employees needs to be at the heart of transformation and ensures your employees will be more productive committed and engaged, driving your profits and ensuring a positive reputation in the market.
