Razer levels up HR with Workday

Razer has successfully implemented Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) as its core HR platform. 

The lifestyle brand for gamers is redesigning its HR processes to drive greater operational excellence and strengthen its position as an employer of choice.

At present, Razer has operations across 19 offices worldwide, including Singapore, Germany and the United States with a workforce of 1,500 people working collectively to build its gamer-focused ecosystem. 

With employees working across multiple locations, Razer needed HR solutions that could help break down silos, foster collaboration, and enable swifter decision-making while creating an engaging environment for employees.

Since implementing Workday HCM to support performance management, recruiting, and time tracking functions, Razer was able to effectively further catalyse its people and culture practices that support its growth and profitability ambitions. 

This includes instilling a unified company culture where there are established group-wide practices and alignment in performance management processes which have helped increase productivity.

“Digital transformation of our people and culture processes is key to ensuring that we continue to stay ahead of the curve and enable Razer to be an organisation that is not only a great place to work but also a place to do great work,” said April Wan, VP and global head of HR at Razer. 

Leveraging the agility of Workday’s platform, Razer has actively streamlined and automated multiple HR processes including onboarding, learning and development across the organisation. 

As a result, Razer has unlocked synergies, generated cost savings across its business, and enhanced productivity. 

An example of this success was that the company has been able to reduce the time taken to implement organisation changes from four weeks to one week, allowing for more time to be spent on strategic business initiatives.

“Working together, we have helped Razer optimise its HR processes for a thriving work environment that supports strategic decision-making for growth while adapting to evolving business needs ,” said Pannie Sia, Workday general manager in ASEAN.
