Workday helps TalkTalk move its HR systems to the cloud

HR cloud apps provider helps TalkTalk make the move from on-premise to the cloud

Broadband provider TalkTalk has moved its HR operations into the cloud, with the help of finance apps provider Workday.

The company has ditched its legacy, on-premise HR system in favour of Workday's cloud-based suite of HR apps to make it easier for it to track the changing needs of its workforce and wider business.

The Workday apps the company will now have access to include Workday Human Capital Management, Workday Time Tracking, and Workday Recruiting.

It is claimed these apps will allow TalkTalk to automate important HR tasks, as well as capture and process data charting each stage of the employee recruitment, probation and performance review cycle.

Furthermore, the system will also provide TalkTalk with access to real-time data about its employees, with regard to costs, headcount and skill levels.

TalkTalk claim the change in HR application strategy was necessary because the “rigid” legacy HR systems it previously used made it difficult to quickly react to the evolving needs of its business.

Nigel Sullivan, group HR director at TalkTalk, said the fast-growing nature of its business means it has to be able to provide staff with the support they need to do a good job.

“Our employees are critical to our success, we are investing in Workday HCM to not only support our development and growth, but also to give us the workforce insights we need to better manage talent and help inform business decisions,” said Sullivan.

Chano Fernandez, president for EMEA at Workday, added: “For sourcing to succession, Workday will help TalkTalk create and enrich the workforce it needs to support future growth and deliver business outcomes.”
