Hear from our current Generation Workday™ employees

Caroline Hyland, UCD – Computer Science

“I was asked for my input just like everybody else and my opinion was valued just as much. In Workday, it doesn’t matter if you have been here for a week or 10 years, everyone is encouraged to speak, and everyone’s opinion is valued.”

Donncha O’ Callaghan, UCC - Information Technology

“One of our other core values is fun, and you really don’t have to go looking too hard for this one. It is an unwritten prerequisite to joining the company that you bring your fun side with you - and make use of it at the numerous work events, putting a smile on our customers faces, and most importantly always having a good laugh with your Workmates.
