In order to be a great company to work for, employees at all stages of their careers need to feel supported, challenged, and motivated. So it was especially meaningful for Workday to be ranked in the top 10 on the “50 Best Workplaces for New College Grads” list released yesterday by Fortune.com and Great Places to Work. Companies that made the list “excel in providing great employee experiences in areas important to recent graduates.”
An important part of this effort is Generation Workday (GW), an early-career development program designed to help new college grads make a successful transition from school to the workplace and accelerate their careers at Workday. Those hired as part of GW get exposure to multiple teams and projects that include networking events, career development boot camps, discussions with company leaders, and potentially even overseas job assignments. Currently, GW includes about 250 employees worldwide, and another 250 college interns, some of whom will join Workday upon graduation.
We asked Megan Baker, who has completed the GW program and is now a member of Workday’s Tools team, to share a bit about her experience and how her role has evolved since joining Workday.
