Workday Ranks #3 as a Best Place to Work in Europe

Employee-First Culture Central to Workday's Success

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2017) - Workday, Inc. (NYSEWDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that it ranked #3 on Great Place to Work (GPTW) Institute's list of the best workplaces in Europe. Appearing on this list for the third consecutive year, Workday currently has more than 6,900 employees globally, including more than 1,000 based across Europe.

Since day one, Workday's founders understood that a strong corporate culture would serve as the foundation for the company's success. In order to build a company that would revolutionize the enterprise software market, they needed to focus on recruiting, rewarding, and retaining the very best people. To do this meant fostering an employee-first culture where people are valued, heard, inspired, encouraged to bring their full selves to work, and most importantly committed to customer satisfaction.

"We firmly believe that our employee-first culture is the cornerstone of Workday's success in Europe," said Ashley Goldsmith, chief people officer, Workday. "Employees have been our top priority since day one because everything -- from our market-leading products to our growing community of live and happy customers in the region -- is driven by their innovation, passion, and exceptional commitment to customer satisfaction."

This recognition follows other honors Workday has received as a top workplace, including ranking #18 on Fortune's list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the U.S., and being named the #1 Best Workplace in Ireland for large companies by the GPTW Institute.
