Streamlined HR system to Workday HCM for compensation, core benefits and payroll across all US facilities to standardize processes and handle seasonal workflow

Challenge: HR System to Standardize Processes and Handle Seasonal Workforce

  • Legacy HR system (Software Plus) contained out-of-date and inaccurate information
  • Processes were inconsistent between facilities across the US for job profiles and compensation policies
  • Needed HR/payroll solution to facilitate handling large seasonal workforce at one time
  • Company too large to continue to administer benefits using spreadsheets

Solution: Workday HCM, Compensation, Core Benefits and Payroll Across All US Facilities

  • Integration with Kronos to sync employee information with the new timekeeping system to feed payroll processes for over 1,800 employees
  • Custom integrations to feed payroll information to Dynamics AX financial system and to feed employee data to legacy AS/400 system for generating and deactivating badges for floor control
  • Implemented Workday integrations for direct deposit and positive pay with new bank

Results: Eliminated Manual Errors and Time Consuming Tasks

  • Benefits, compensation and payroll are administered consistently across the enterprise
  • Payroll errors due to manual entry of benefits, compensation and tax information have been eliminated
  • Time to complete payroll (weekly and bi-weekly) has been significantly reduced
  • Dynamic changes in the seasonal workforce, often consisting of previous workers, can now be screened and accommodated timely and accurately
