Expand with strategic and tactical support

Let our certified consultants support key activities during the alignment, integration and optimisation phases of your expansion, including:

  • evaluating alignment issues between your locations’ operational policies, programs and practices;
  • identifying the work required to implement consistent procedures across regions; and
  • pinpointing the critical worker and accounts data you’ll need to migrate.

Excite teams about change

Incoming workers may face new reporting structures, roles and responsibilities as well new processes. We help you make structured, positive changes so new teams embrace the value of Workday.

Migrate worker data easily and accurately

Our proven data migration templates accelerate the prep and movement of worker data from your new locations’ systems to your Workday system—taking care of the data reformatting, gap analysis, mapping, and transfer verification tasks that would take your teams days or weeks to do by hand.


Share regional data with Workday faster

The sooner you get new locations’ third-party platforms ‘talking’ to your Workday system, the more accurate reports will be for decision making.

We handle the most complex integrations in the Workday ecosystem. Not only do we build them from end-to-end, but we also advise on system retention vs. replacement, provide cost-benefit analysis, and consult on architectural decisions like middleware options and data warehousing.


Get local regulations right

Every country has its own ways of doing things. Luckily for you, our Workday consultants know the difference between regional requirements, local best-practices, and personal preferences.

We help you decipher which Workday security and BP changes are mandatory vs. optional, prioritise the right items in your Workday expansion's strategy and design phases, and remain compliant with new territories' legislation and regulations, including:

  • indirect tax
  • accounting requirements and internal controls
  • reporting requirements and document sequencing
  • employment terms and works councils
  • data residency requirements and data protection

“Our business was growing and we kept expanding … [We needed] help navigating the numerous and varied regional requirements globally … with Kainos we were able to implement [Workday] quickly across all our locations, and all the functionality and benefits it has delivered is great.”

Dominika Michalska-Najbert
Group Chief Accountant

“Kainos helped us successfully deploy Workday Finance, setting the business up for hopefully the next 10 to 20 years of growth, so that we can concentrate on what we do best.” 

James Greenwood 
Head of Business Systems

“We do about three acquisitions a year. With Kainos handling our testing, new staff are run through our Payroll and security tests, our system is fully regression tested after new BPs are added, and we know within hours whether everything is running the way it should be. That has completely eased expansions for my team.”  

Lawrence Berra 
Former Senior Manager of HR Systems
Magellan Health

“With Kainos Smart doing most of the heavy lifting and update testing pretty much covered, my team has more time to focus on strategic initiatives—for example, supporting company acquisition plans.” 

Greg Holliday 
Former Director of HRIS
Service Corporation International

“Smart is critical to the way IRC uses Workday to manage its people across the globe. It has transformed the speed and effectiveness of our test operations and it has made a great improvement to how we manage resources more efficiently.”  

Coreen Campbell 
Former Director of HR Systems
