The latest episode of the Payday Global Payroll Podcast is now live, bringing you an in-depth conversation with Laurent Botella of Workday about the continuing challenges facing payroll and HR teams, and how leading organizations are finding solutions using unified technology platforms.
As official partners since 2011, Workday and CloudPay provide advanced HR and payroll services to customers around the world. In this podcast, Laurent joins Payday host David Barak to dissect the issues, needs, and wants that are leading modern multinationals to powerful, streamlined, cloud-based systems like Workday—and the benefit of integrating payroll into that solution.
“Payroll today is undergoing digital transformation from manual processing and administration toward automation and smart intelligence,” Laurent explains in the episode. “The key processes such as gross-to-net calculation, tax update, FLSA in the US, retro-processing and multi-jurisdiction processing have been automated. And the next step now is really to make payroll smart.”
Part of making payroll smart is making solutions that work for users, whether that means internal teams, company leadership, or individual employees. And a consistently better user experience is a hallmark of both the Workday and CloudPay platforms.
“Your end goal should be that HR managers around the globe hire, promote, transfer employees using the same tool for all the countries around the globe—and the same thing for your employees. Your employees should view their personal data, do their performance review, view their payslips, and request time off in the same platform, whether they’re in China or the UK or Mexico.”
