Jabil joins up with Workday to unify global workforce 

Jabil is working with Workday to unlock efficiencies and transform the global manufacturing solutions provider’s HR processes through Workday Human Capital Management.

The United States-based manufacturer caters to some 300 of the biggest brands in the world in every market – from healthcare, packaging, smartphones and cloud equipment to automotive and home appliances. 

Also, Jabil supports a multicultural and diverse workforce across 100 locations in 30 different countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

To overcome challenges associated with managing multiple HR systems, Jabil needed to establish a single source of truth for employee data across its globalised workforce.  

By deploying Workday, Jabil now has a centralised view of employee information, streamlined core HR processes, and facilitated data flows that enhance compliance across the organisation. 

With accurate and reliable data, Jabil’s leadership teams can now make data-driven decisions that drive growth, effectively leverage the different capabilities within their workforce, and address gaps in the talent pool.

In addition, Workday Advanced Compensation helps Jabil’s managers make decisions on merit-based salary increases, promotions, and bonuses more effectively, facilitating a robust compensation process. 

Aligned with the company’s employee-first approach, employees are empowered to use self-service capabilities to complete various HR tasks required, with an average of about 1.5 million employee-initiated transactions completed annually.

“In recent years, we have seen the manufacturing industry drastically transformed by technology and globalisation,” said May Yap, SVP and CIO of Jabil. 

“Following the deployment of Workday solutions at Jabil, we have begun to realise the efficiencies gained in our various operations,” said Yap. “Our employees are now better placed to focus on higher value tasks and fully leverage their skill sets to achieve peak business performance in this competitive business environment.” 

Pannie Sia, Workday general manager in ASEAN, said that a data-driven human resources approach acts as a compass for business success. 

By harnessing insights derived through employee analytics, companies can optimise their operations and work towards fostering a harmonious synergy between their human capital and organisational goals,” said Sia.
