Governance

Workday is committed to sound corporate governance that is rooted in integrity, ethical conduct, and compliance. As stewards of information that is valuable to Workday and its customers, suppliers, and partners, we prioritize trust and security in both reality and reputation.

Board Structure and Committees

The Workday board of directors oversees significant business matters, such as strategy and long-term business plans, risk management, compliance, and ethical standards and behavior. Our board sets high standards for Workday employees, contractors, officers, and directors.

The board consists of 10 members. Seven of the directors are independent, as defined by the rules of the NASDAQ Global Select Market, including all members of the board’s Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, and Nominating and Governance Committee. Our Chairman of the Board David Duffield is a non-executive officer, and our Vice Chairman George Still, Jr., the lead independent director of the board.

Find more information on the Workday board of directors—including committees, structure, and biographies of each director—on the Workday Corporate Governance web page. On this page, you’ll also find the charters of each of our board committees, which outline each committee’s respective roles and responsibilities, as well as the Workday Code of Conduct and Corporate Governance Guidelines.
