NEW YORK, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte and Workday, a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise human resources (HR) and financial solutions, today announced a strategic alliance.  Under this agreement, Deloitte will provide HR transformation and implementation related services to clients deploying tools such as Workday's human capital management (HCM), talent management and spend management solutions.

"Our alliance with Workday allows Deloitte to differentiate itself among boutique HR consultancies and system integrators," said Jason Geller, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and global HR transformation leader. "Working together, Deloitte will leverage its business-driven HR approach, global reach, functional depth and SaaS experience to accelerate both the business value associated with HR transformation, as well as process and technology cost saving efficiencies."

Deloitte has made a long-term investment in building Workday capabilities and has specially trained practitioners deployed throughout the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited global network of member firms. From strategy, assessment, planning, and business case development to complete Workday implementations, Deloitte will deliver value across various industries, including consumer and industrial products, energy, financial services, life sciences and health care, public sector and technology, media and telecommunications.

With Workday, companies can harness the power of the SaaS model, resulting in a comprehensive HCM, Talent Management and Spend Management solution to help organizations acquire, equip, measure, develop, deploy and retain their global workforce — generally at lower cost than typical on-premise enterprise resource planning solutions.

Workday technology offers an enterprise system that can be configured and reconfigured at any time and covers critical aspects of staffing, development, compensation, benefits, performance, payroll, projects and absence. Workday operates as a hub for critical personnel and corporate data, using modern, open APIs based on clear industry standards to connect with secondary systems.

"Deloitte's reputation and demonstrated track record for helping the world's largest organizations transform their HR operations makes them an ideal alliance for Workday and our customers," said Mike Stankey, president and COO, Workday.
