Hundreds of organisations, ranging from medium-sized businesses to Fortune 50 enterprises, have selected Workday.

When Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri founded Workday in 2005, they wanted it to be different. They weren’t interested in building another legacy business software company that sold monstrously complex systems requiring huge amounts of time and money to maintain, update, and integrate. They wanted to build an alternative, a company built in the cloud that focused intensely on the satisfaction of its customers. Started with a clean sheet of paper, Workday was born.
