Workday offers a cloud-based HRIS solution to help organizations streamline and manage their HR operations from a single system. With their HRIS solution, Workday aims to improve essential aspects of HR management, including HR planning, employee experience, employee engagement, and people analytics. Though Workday is feature-rich with different options and capabilities, the HRIS solution is not very straightforward or convenient to use.
With a less accessible system, you’ll either spend a lot of time trying to find a particular feature or end up performing the task manually. This can be a major letdown for your employees and HR teams who are looking to simplify their administrative work and focus on other initiatives. Zoho People, our HRIS, has been designed to help you spend less time on routine HR work and more time on your people. Each feature contributes to a more exceptional employee experience. Most tasks can be completed with just a few clicks. In this article, we list eight reasons why you should consider Zoho People over Workday:
A clumsy UI design makes interaction with a software application difficult, and this is sure to frustrate your employees. Workday’s HRIS involves a lot of clicking when performing a task. Zoho People’s HRIS has been designed to ensure that most tasks are completed with minimal effort, eliminating unnecessary steps and processes. Every feature has been integrated in an effective way to help you and your employees find and use them easily.
Enhanced people analytics
People analytics allow you to take a data-driven approach to improving employee experiences. People analytics in Zoho People are more extensive when compared to Workday’s people analytics. It takes quite some time to generate reports in Workday and the generated reports are hard to discern. On the other hand, the reports in Zoho People are eye-catching and easy to read, and they can be generated in no time. These reports can also be customized to help you to understand the different trends associated with every element of people management.
Mobile HR management
Locating features in Workday’s mobile application can be tedious and time-consuming as the interface is not straightforward. However, Zoho People’s HRIS mobile application is as user-friendly as its cloud application. It allows your employees to complete most of their HR activities through their mobile device. Your employees can get their HR questions answered and locate or store documents on their phone without having to use a computer.
Easy email notifications
As an HR manager, it’s important that you update employees about every essential activity they must do, such as filing tax forms, submitting bills for reimbursements, and more. It’s also your job to inform them about other important developments in your organization. The email schedulers in Zoho People are easier to navigate and customize. The email scheduler feature in Workday is a bit rigid when it comes to customization options. Whereas, in Zoho People, everything from the date, time, frequency, and time zone can be specified so that your employees don’t miss any updates and get the information they need.
At the heart of an HRIS is an employee database management system, which allows you to organize and manage employee data. After implementing an HRIS, you and your employees shouldn’t be burdened with the task of updating the same data repeatedly. This is one of the common complaints when it comes to Workday’s database management system. Zoho People’s employee data management system puts an end to manual and repetitive data entry as all information is synced across the whole system.
Comprehensive performance reviews
With an HRIS, your organization should be able to deliver performance reviews based on facts from a variety of reputable sources. One of the useful performance review methods that keeps implicit bias at bay is the 360-degree feedback system. Workday’s HRIS lacks a 360-degree feedback feature, whereas Zoho People’s HRIS supports multi-rater feedback, allowing employees to provide insights and feedback on their peers’ performance. This will help managers conduct more reflective performance reviews.
The implementation phase of an HRIS is very important, and receiving proper support from the software vendor helps you avoid chaos and wasted time, money, and energy. Failed implementations can disrupt your day-to-day HR operations. Zoho People has detailed and easy-to-digest help documentation that will guide your organization during each step of the implementation. Our executives provide personalized one-on-one demos to help our you understand our product, and our support team works around the clock to assist our customers with anything related to Zoho People.
An HRIS that scales
Zoho People has been designed for businesses of all sizes and types. It can help small and medium-sized businesses by simplifying HR workflows and improving people management, both of which help drive the overall growth of the organization. Zoho People helps enterprises step up their HR efficiency and create strategies to keep employees at every level engaged. Workday’s HRIS is designed to meet the needs of medium-sized businesses and enterprises, leaving small businesses out.
Though Workday covers most of the features required to improve HR management, it misses out on the finer details that are required to best improve employee experience. In Zoho People, every feature has been crafted carefully to take the HR management and employee experience strategies in your organization to the next level. With the valuable feedback our customers provide, we improve Zoho People’s HRIS continuously to make our system as useful as possible in terms of functionality and user experience.
