Unibail-Rodamco Builds for the Future With Workday

Europe's Leading Listed Commercial Property Company Moves HR to the Cloud for Greater Flexibility, Scale, and Workforce Insights

PLEASANTON, CA and PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2015) - Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Unibail-Rodamco, Europe's leading listed commercial property company, has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) for an end-to-end HR management system that will support the business as it grows. With Workday, Unibail-Rodamco will gain greater speed and agility in its workforce operations globally with a common set of HR processes, as well as clear insight into workforce data that will help inform better people management decisions. The system will be deployed by Workday partner EverBe.

Unibail-Rodamco is a leading real estate company in Europe and one of the largest in the world with more than 2,000 employees and 72 prime shopping centers in major European cities. With high-growth objectives, Unibail-Rodamco realized its legacy HR systems lacked the scalability and flexibility it required. Manual reporting led to reduced data quality and made it difficult for management to access, analyze and trust workforce data to make informed decisions when and where they needed.

In order to more effectively manage HR operations globally as it grows, Unibail-Rodamco has chosen Workday to replace its legacy systems with a single, flexible system in the cloud.

With Workday, Unibail-Rodamco expects to:

  • Streamline operations and increase efficiencies with a modern system and one version of accurate, up-to-date workforce data globally.
  • Equip managers with powerful reporting and analytics tools to make better decisions and achieve more predictable business results.
  • More effectively manage a complete and continuous employee life cycle in one system, from onboarding new workers, to having clear visibility of all its employees, and contingent workers globally.
  • Deliver a consistent, intuitive user experience on desktop and mobile devices that empowers employees with greater flexibility to access information and perform tasks whenever and wherever necessary.
