Transforming Federal Agencies’ Take on Human Resources


Workday, Inc, a leading provider of solutions to help organizations manage their people and money, has officially confirmed the news of Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) selecting its Workday Government Cloud solution to accelerate human resources modernization efforts. Marking Workday’s formal entry into the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), the stated development will have the company supporting DIA in its pursuit to rapidly accelerate recruitment and onboarding efforts, all for the purpose of creating a diverse, trusted, and agile workforce. On top of that, Workday will also help DIA identify, integrate, and direct skills and expertise across its organization to solve emerging intelligence problems where and when they are most urgently required. Talk about the whole value proposition on a slightly deeper level, we begin from the promise of bringing the business together. You see, by centralizing all HR data into a single system of record with Workday, DIA can break down silos, and at the same time, foster heightened collaboration among its workforce. Such a facility, on its part, should allow the agency to let managers and wider leadership access improved insights, insights that they can then use to take better decisions in a host of different areas. Next up, we must get into how the Workday’s collaboration with DIA will effectively transform the latter’s hiring experience. Here, the core idea will be to leverage Workday’s unified data core to automate business processes and accelerate hiring decisions. Almost like a by-product of the same, DIA can reduce, to a significant degree, the usual time-to-hire. Not just that, such a maneuver will also help the agency stand a better chance at competing for the best talent.

“The intelligence community is not immune to the external forces transforming the world of work so we applaud DIA for leading the charge in modernizing the way it manages the evolving needs of its workforce – a mission we are honored to support,” said Carl Eschenbach, CEO of Workday. “This partnership demonstrates our dedication to the federal market and our significant customer momentum in this space as more and more federal agencies shift from legacy technologies to modern solutions like Workday.”

Rounding up highlights would be an aim to develop people-centric practices. This translates to Workday providing DIA with an employee-centric talent foundation, which you can guess, will be better positioned to increase employee retention, boost engagement, and develop future leaders today to take on the intelligence challenges of tomorrow.

The runner in question comes at a time when federal agencies are constantly running into new complexities due to unprecedented technological changes, rapidly shifting demographics, and long wait times to hire, particularly with younger prospective employees. To contextualize the same, rough estimations claim that no more than 7% of the federal workforce is under the age of 30. Furthermore, these estimations reveal how nearly 30% of federal leaders will become eligible for retirement within just five years. But what makes Workday an ideal candidate to address this problem? Well, the answer to that resides in the company’s clientele, which currently holds over 35 federal and national government customers from around the world. Outside of these federal and government customers, Workday also serves 10,500+ organizations worldwide, including 60% of the Fortune 500 companies.
