In 2005, Workday founders Aneel Bhusri and Dave Duffield created a company based on a core set of values that guide our interactions, decisions, and leadership.

The result is an inspiring culture, and a company that values its employees, with an emphasis on customer service, innovation, integrity, fun, and profitability. And our happy customers keep Workday on the path toward its goal of achieving the industry’s highest customer satisfaction rating.

We focus on our core values, communicate transparently, treat everyone with respect, reward hard work, take part in fun and wacky events, come together to strengthen our local communities, and invest in a variety of employee-recognition programs that show appreciation for our colleagues’ contributions, both large and small. Because we focus on our people, Workday has earned widespread recognition as a great place to work.

Employee Development

Many people are attracted to Workday because we have an environment where employees can continually learn and grow. We focus on programs and opportunities to help people realize their potential and take charge of their careers.

Belonging and Diversity

A sense of belonging is fundamental to our productivity and well-being at work. We encourage people to bring their full, authentic selves to work and we focus on innovative ways to provide and enhance a culture where all of our employees feel valued.
