At Workday, innovation isn’t just a buzzword, it’s a core value. Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators just came out and we are honored to once again be on this list, which recognizes businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.
We sat down with Pete Schlampp, executive vice president of product development, and Sayan Chakraborty, executive vice president of technology, to discuss how our culture at Workday encourages out-of-the-box thinking and creativity, which enables us to create products and technology that are changing the way people work.
With innovation being a core value for Workday, what is our perspective and vision around it?
Schlampp: As you mention, innovation has been a major part of our culture from day one. We were the first to offer a true human capital management cloud application for large enterprises and we’ve had that trailblazer mindset ever since.
We see innovation at Workday as a true partnership between our employees and our customers. More than ever, it’s an iterative and collaborative process, where we’re having important, open dialogue with our customers about their needs and how we can continue to innovate to support them in this fast-changing world.
