Deeper Partnership Will Help Customers Navigate Increasing Payroll and HR Complexities in the Changing World of Work

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, and ADP (NASDAQ: ADP), a global technology company providing human capital management (HCM) solutions, today announced an extended partnership to provide an enhanced frictionless global payroll, compliance, and HR experience for joint customers.

Announced at Workday's annual customer conference, Workday Rising, the extended partnership builds on a decade-long relationship between the two companies and aims to enable a more streamlined experience for payroll administrators, and a better experience for joint customers overall.

The companies will partner to create more seamless interactions between Workday and ADP systems to enable deeper customer visibility into data across their HCM environment including compliance, tax, and payroll.

"We are laser focused on providing smart, easy, and powerful solutions that help our clients confidently achieve their goals, and enhanced integrations provide the personalization we know they desire," said Maria Black, President and CEO, ADP. "This deeper partnership with Workday builds on our longstanding relationship to provide a technology-first experience across our shared clients' entire HCM suite."

According to a recent ADP Potential of Payroll study, the issue of navigating disjointed HR and payroll systems is of increasing concern for companies, with 94% of global organizations agreeing that they would like to see integration across all of their systems, while survey respondents estimated they spent an average of 22 hours per week, per country, managing the data flow between these systems.

"This expanded partnership with ADP is an exciting next step in a journey spanning over ten years of jointly servicing one million employees and thousands of customers," said Carl Eschenbach, co-CEO, Workday. "By deepening the partnership between our two companies, we are better equipped to expand our global reach and serve our joint customers' ever-evolving needs."

The expanded partnership with ADP coincides with a series of announcements at Workday Rising highlighting increased customer value across Workday's expanding partner ecosystem.
