KPMG Workday Practice
KPMG has a significant Workday practice in Canada, with team members across the nation (spanning regions such as Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and the GTA, Montreal and Halifax). Our team includes various Workday Product Leads, as well as some of the very first Workday-certified Consultants in the country. Our Workday practitioners span the breadth of HR functional knowledge, technical know-how and blend the latest trends in HR service optimization with real-world knowledge and understanding of our clients’ industry challenges and opportunities.
KPMG is a Platinum partner to Workday and has been recognized as one of the top HR Transformation and Workday implementation providers by third party analysts such as Vanguard and ALM. Most recently, KPMG received the highest possible ranking of “Leader” among Workday implementation partners in the Forrester New Wave™ Workday implementation report from 2019. This is largely due to our robust HR transformation strategy. KPMG has worked closely with Workday on product strategy, aided in the development of Workday’s deployment methodology, and has built a practice with a strong track record of successful deployments.
