    Project managers to help your business implement Workday

    With acute talent shortages across most of IT, project management, niche areas of data and sciences, organisations had been forced to amp up their talent attraction strategies both in attaining and retaining top talent. Workday-LogoKey to achieve this, there is need for new systems to provide both candidates and employees an improved experience and engagement. 

    Over the past 3 years Australian businesses have fallen in love with one HR / ERP system above all others, Workday. 
    Workday is an elegant and powerful enterprise system which operates from one line of code with interoperable modules and holistic reporting providing for and supporting actionable intelligence. 
    My consultants have engaged in a number of Workday implementations, most recently at Optiver where we have rolled out Core HCM, Recruitment, Onboarding, Performance and Talent. 
    Digital Rehab has intimate knowledge of all major Workday implementation companies having worked already with a few, know the Workday Australia team and are active in the Workday community. 
    The key deficiency in rolling out Workday is in the support given to business in making the massive transformation from their legacy system to Workday. Considerable engagement with key stakeholders, project planning, data preparation and risk mitigation are all required and implementation consultants will need this to done for them. That is where Digital Rehab can help you as your Workday Customer Project Manager, represent your interests and co-ordinate all deliverables to ensure smooth transition and management of change.

    With over 40 happy clients, here is what a few have to say about us:

    • "Alisdair helped Acciona deliver the implementation of Workday and a new payroll system in one of the most challenging environments that we have ever faced. He initially focused on just the Workday implementation, which had to be adapted from the Global configuration to the local requirements, to then move to assume also the coordination of the Payroll migration from three different systems to a brand new eco-system with its particular configuration which combined self-developed proprietary software with best of breed systems. This had to be done not only in the middle of the COVID pandemic, but also halfway through the acquisition of Lendlease which tripled the number of employees, introduced new complexities in relation to employing entities, Payroll and EBAs, and required a high level of coordination between Lendlease and ACCIONA leadership , to guarantee a seamlessly transition in a safe manner, to bring across all relevant data and systems.

      There was a “before and after” Alisdair joined our team to help us with this project, as he brought a clear and effective methodology to guide the business in the implementation, with discipline and governance rules, helping us to define and meet achievable milestones that resulted in a very well tailor made implementation in a timely manner, for the Australian and NZ businesses within the Global framework.

      The tools he brought, his personal approach to an effective way of dealing with internal and external resources and his highly professional work ethic, helped us keep the teams aligned, focused and progressing as required, despite changing requirements and multiple other challenges.

      I believe Alisdair is a well-rounded Project Director who I will have again working for me if I had to approach a new HRIS implementation or HR transformation undertaking in the future."

      Pilar Gomez Fabra

      Chief Human Resources Officer, Acciona

    • "We were recommended Alisdair from one of our Board members in the rebuild of our website and platform. Alisdair has been fantastic with helping us through each stage of the process and working with the developers, designers and my team.

    • "Alisdair started with Optiver originally tasked to help us gather and document our internal business requirements with the purpose of being to help us select a new HR Management System. We saw Alisdair's potential and skill in this area and asked him to stay on to help us conduct an in-depth assessment on the HR System landscape and then to assist in rolling out Workday across APAC. Optiver has also engaged him to rollout a new regional payroll solution and to help consult on the global website. Having now been with Optiver for 16mths, Alisdair is a pleasure to work with and a valued expert to help us in delivering these key projects."
