Airasia’s Digital Transformation with Workday HCM

Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that the world’s best low-cost airline, AirAsia, has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) as part of its digital transformation journey.

AirAsia operates flights to more than 140 destinations spanning 22 markets. The company has been transforming all areas of its business to help increase efficiency, strengthen customer focus and pursue its plans for growth. As part of this journey, AirAsia has rolled out Workday’s cloud technology for HCM to its 22,000+ Allstars (employees) globally.

Workday HCM enables customers to uncover workforce insights for quicker and more informed decisions in optimising human resources and talent management operations. The technology will be implemented to manage AirAsia’s employee data including career information, technical skills and training and other employee records. Additionally, AirAsia employees will have self-service capabilities allowing them to build their own career paths.

Varun Bhatia, Chief People and Culture Officer, AirAsia said: “AirAsia’s digital transformation encompasses our people and culture as much as it does our business model. In doing so, we have looked closely at each stage of our Allstars’ career to see how best to leverage technology and use data. Workday met our criteria for an enterprise-level, integrated and cloud-based mobile HCM platform with strong reporting and analytics. We also appreciate Workday’s active and responsive partnership, along with strong customer support.”

Rob Wells, President for Asia at Workday said: “We are proud to be a partner to AirAsia, one of the most people-centric airlines in the world and a company that shares our vision of digital innovation and empowering people. We will be working closely with AirAsia in its journey to transform its employee experience and maintain its position as one of Asia’s largest and leading low-cost airlines.”
