Ezaki Glico Selects Workday as its Global Unified HR System


Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd. (hereafter, Ezaki Glico) has chosen Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). Ezaki Glico will use Workday’s unified system to consolidate its employee data, view up-to-date organisational information, and create HR reports in real time. This will contribute to business expansion by optimising workforce planning and supporting the company’s hiring efforts.

As domestic consumption in Japan is slowing down due to the country’s decreasing population, Ezaki Glico is actively promoting its overseas business in areas including Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. In order to promote product and business development globally, the company plans to utilize Workday HCM to have visibility into the most talented people internally as well as externally. With the most up-to-date information in Workday, the company can make better talent management decisions and better ensure they are allocating people in ways that make full use of their strengths and abilities.

Workday HCM will also be used as a tool to manage employee data including career history, skills, and training records. Additionally, employees will have self-service capabilities to build their own career paths and introduce themselves to counterparts in other countries, which will promote smooth communication and create connections globally.

Ezaki Glico plans to deploy Workday to major domestic and overseas bases in the fiscal year of 2017, and complete the deployment at all sites of the Ezaki Glico Group in 2019.
