HR spends very little time acting as a strategic business partner. It lacks the resources, executive influence, and data and analytics to function in a strategic role. Likewise, F&A understands the importance of data and analytics on decision-making, and the impact they have on business strategy. Yet, most organizations don’t have the right tools in place to deliver valuable insight. Given these challenges, how can HR and F&A achieve positive outcomes and act as a strategic business partner? Research suggests that strategic consulting could be the answer.

Workday customers need to evaluate processes against functionality. Manual processes become automated, and automated processes become more efficient. Critical business activities such as M&A and divestiture create opportunities to align and harmonize people, processes and technology while expanding the way the company approaches goals and objectives.
