A changing world requires more fluid planning, acquisition, and development, so we’re building new capabilities around talent planning, talent marketplace, and augmented analytics that fuel the talent lifecycle to create a personalized, contextual worker experience. We know from our customers that the end user experience is critical. As our customer at Target explained to us, “We were looking for a solution to live around the team member, not around the HR organization.”
And we are quickly advancing development of Workday People Experience, which streamlines various workplace tasks and creates a simpler, more connected and engaging digital experience—powered by machine learning. “We were looking for a partnership with a company that is innovating and that is on a platform that is focused on user experience,” said Shamim Mohammad, senior vice president, chief information and technology officer at CarMax. “Workday is that company.”
We also continue to support more fluid workforce management expectations and dynamics. For example, to make it easier for employers to verify credentials—degrees, professional certifications, skills, and the like—and to help prospective employees share their credentials securely, we announced this summer that we’re setting out to build the world’s most advanced network of verified credentials, powered by a new blockchain-based digital credentialing platform.
