It's fun to work in a company where people truly believe in what they're doing. At Workday, we're committed to bringing passion and customer focus to the business of enterprise applications. We work hard, and we're serious about what we do. But we like to have a good time, too. In fact, we run our company with that principle in mind every day: One of our core values is fun.
As a company, we seek market opportunity and impact. As people, we want to enjoy our jobs and those we work with. From day one, our founders knew that a successful business would be built on a strong company culture. This means fostering an environment where people feel valued, heard, inspired, and like they belong. Our culture empowers our employees to achieve their organizational objectives, give their personal best, and work together as a team—ultimately defining who we are as a company and the customer experience we provide." - Aneel Bhusri, co-founder and co-CEO, Workday
A Simple Approach to Happy Customers, Employees, and Families When Dave and Aneel founded Workday, they wanted the company to embody all the good qualities of their past experiences. They also knew that the real measure of success would be the degree to which Workday abided by a set of key core values. Dave has founded five companies in his career, and the core values he developed over the years were inspired by Jim Collins's book Beyond Entrepreneurship: Turning Your Business Into an Enduring Great Company. Core values give us a framework for leadership and daily decisions, and they help us enjoy our time at work. Sounds so simple, but too often companies get caught up in politics, ivory-tower attitudes, and market mania instead of focusing on the things that probably made them successful in the first place. The following Workday core values and beliefs define what's important to Workday: Employees Most fundamentally, people are the core of our business. Without them, we would have no business. Customer Service Every investment and decision we make has our customers in mind, and we pull out all stops to put the needs and issues of our customers first. Innovation We aim for innovation not only in our Development organization, but also in the way we approach all aspects of our business. Integrity We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We stick to our commitments, treat everyone equitably, and communicate openly and honestly. Fun We work hard and play hard, investing in community and company events that help our employees and their families feel a connection to Workday beyond business as usual. Profitability Profitability is what enables us to give our employees and customers the best productivity tools, solutions, and services, so it's hugely important to us.
