activpayroll, the global payroll and employee mobility specialist headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, attended Workday Rising US from 9th – 12th October 2017. CEO of activpayroll, Alison Sellar, represented activpayroll at the four day event that took place at McCormick Place West in Chicago, Illinois.
The event brought together over 8,000 workday customers, prospective customers, partners, and employees to collaborate and learn how Workday helps organisations achieve their growth objectives and prepare for the future. The annual conference was made up of workshops, keynote speakers, an innovation exchange expo, forums and table talks.
activpayroll and Workday have shared a successful partnership spanning 10 years, integrating activpayroll’s Global Payroll Services with Workday customers. Workday provides class-leading enterprise level Human Capital Management (HCM), Financial Management, Payroll, Time & Attendance and Planning Applications to organisations across the world, with a platform designed to cater for complex and changing organisational requirements.
As a trusted Workday partner and global payroll provider, activpayroll had a booth at the event and was on hand to advise current and prospective customers on how to create transformation strategies for payroll.
Alison Sellar comments: “Workday Rising 2017 was a whirlwind, although we attended last year, this year was even bigger and better than last. Having a presence at such a massive conference is vital given our global reach, even more so now that we have an entity in the US. As we don’t rely on a sales team, the conference was a great chance to build new connections on a more personal level. To see our current customers visiting our booth with prospective customers that they had recommended us to was fantastic. Having shared customers for over 10 years and as a certified Workday Global Payroll Cloud Partner, activpayroll truly values the partnership it has with Workday. After the success of this year’s event, we can’t wait to see what’s in store next year!”
