News Brief: Workday VNDLY Named a Winner of Human Resource Executive’s 2023 Top HR Products of the Year

PLEASANTON, Calif., Aug. 29, 2023 -- Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Workday VNDLY has been named a 2023 Top HR Product of the Year by Human Resource Executive. This is the fifth time a Workday product has been recognized by Human Resource Executive as a Top HR Product of the Year.

Workday VNDLY is an extended workforce and vendor management system (VMS) that helps organizations plan, source, and optimize critical external skills to run the business. With Workday VNDLY, organizations access what they need for end-to-end contingent labor and statement of work management – from intuitive configurability, robust invoicing, comprehensive reporting, integration capabilities to connect the technology ecosystem – and more.

“While most organizations have embraced flexible approaches to total workforce management, they have often lacked the right technologies to manage their external workforce and the needed integrations with their core HCM to enable true total workforce intelligence,” said Steve Boese, HR Technology Conference Chair. “With Workday VNDLY, organizations gain both a full set of capabilities for end-to-end lifecycle management of external workers, and the benefits of an integration with Workday HCM supports full visibility into headcount, spend, and more—truly enabling organizations to plan, analyze, and manage their entire workforce.”

Workday VNDLY hooks directly into Workday’s core data foundation, allowing organizations to merge extended workers into the workforce ecosystem. As a result, organizations gain valuable  visibility into their total workforce, delivering a workforce optimization solution that enables businesses to better plan with the entire workforce in mind.

“There is a shifting workforce dynamic that is becoming more reliant on contingent labor. However, this presents challenges in not only managing external workers, but also gaining that total workforce visibility,” said Mariana Santiago, co-GM of Workday VNDLY. “The real time connectivity between Workday HCM and Workday VNDLY allows organizations to better plan, execute, and analyze based on their total workforce, not just part of it. The VMS market was ready for disruption, and Workday VNDLY is leading the way.”

Human Resource Executive’s Top HR Products of the Year competition is conducted annually by Human Resource Executive and recognizes groundbreaking new solutions, taking into consideration overall product innovation, the value added to the HR function, intuitiveness for users, and ability to deliver as promised. The 2023 Top HR Products Award winners will be honored at the upcoming HR Technology Conference & Exposition®, taking place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas from October 10 - 13.
