Frontline, hourly, and shift workers are a critical part of the workforce, yet many organizations continue to face talent shortages.

By analyzing data across the organization, Workday Scheduling and Labor Optimization helps managers and operations leaders improve schedules to meet both the labor demands of the business and numerous business parameters – such as labor regulations – and worker scheduling preferences. Workday Scheduling and Labor Optimization is part of a unified workforce management offering that helps organizations elevate the worker experience and more easily attract, engage, and retain talent — all in one system.

“The current labor market is driving new worker expectations, where workers are increasingly focused on when and where they want to work,” said Mariana Santiago, general manager, workforce and payroll, Workday. “Workday Scheduling and Labor Optimization brings the worker experience to the forefront and bridges that with the employer's need for managing labor and shift schedules. We’re proud to receive this recognition for Workday Scheduling and Labor Optimization and the significant industry demand it addresses.”
