How to make sure to get all the value available to you with Workday? Release management is a good focus area to start with.Digital HR Insights Community
Workday has a good framework for your release adoption planning, but the amount of information available at the Workday Community and in the What´s New in Workday report can be overwhelming. We know that, and that´s why we are making release management more convenient for all Workday customers by organizing a free-of-charge release event every February (for Release 1) and August (for Release 2).
In case you´ve missed our previous event, I want to offer you the possibility to access the full recording of the Get Ready for Workday 2023R1 webinar covering most of Workday´s functional areas. Contact me to get a link to the recording and secure your invitation to the next release event.

Workday is releasing a number of features in between the releases, and the new Name Pronunciation on Profile is one of those. This inclusive feature enables users to add a voice recording of their names to their worker profiles.
I personally welcome this option. Just try to read my name. The surname seems impossible to pronounce, right? As a person from a small country working in an international environment, I sincerely welcome any steps towards multi-national inclusivity. Read more
