Finnair goes live with Workday

March 14, 2018

Finnair goes live with Workday to strengthen its employee experience as it grows
Finnair, the international network airline that specialises in flying between Europe and Asia along the shorter Northern route, has gone live with Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to improve its employee experience and bring efficiencies to the HR function.

Over nine decades, Finnair has grown from a small Finnish airline to an international airline focused on Europe-Asia traffic. Finnair is undergoing the fastest growth phase of its history. The organisation of 5,500 employees expects to recruit another 1,000 employees over the next few years and needs a strong HR system to support its ambitious plans. Recognising the importance of the employee experience as part of its strategy and growth plans, Finnair chose to partner with Workday to embark on its ‘People & Culture’ digital HR transformation journey.

Key reasons for selecting Workday included:
The look and feel of the system, which is designed for the end user, fully integrated with the Finnair internal HR portal, and encourages and enables transparency.
The engaging, consumer-grade experience ensures that staff and managers can easily access information and perform tasks on-the-go from a mobile device, which is critical with a mobile workforce, many of whom work on the airlines.
The ability to get faster time-to-value and easier upgrades with a cloud-based HR system.
Finnair went live in early 2017 with Workday HCM, including a rollout of Compensation, Absence, and Benefits to 5,500 employees based largely in Finland, but with staff located in over 20 countries. Adoption has been high across the business with the self-service nature and agility of the system well-received. Phase two will include Workday Talent and Advanced Compensation, and the adoption roadmap for the near future includes Workday Recruiting. Performance Management is currently going live and it is expected to drive greater uptake across the workforce in the coming months.

Comments on the News
We are a growing organisation, and a strong focus on the employee experience is key to our expansion,” said Johanna Hulkko, head of HR services, Finnair. “Working with Workday enables us to centralise many activities in one system that employees can use via self-service. Workday takes HR to the next level and will help us to support the business better.

Finnair is an extremely well-respected brand in the Nordics and across the globe. It is critical that its strong heritage is preserved as the organisation grows, and employee experience is at the heart of this,” commented Mattias Bolander, regional director, Nordics, Workday. “We are excited to be working with Finnair as it follows a path to digital transformation, underpinned by a single HCM system that empowers employees and business leaders to make better-informed decisions.”

Turkish Airlines zeigt den Super Bowl live in über 9.000 Meter Höhe

January 31, 2017

Turkish Airlines, die unter dem Motto „Widen your World” mehr Länder anfliegt als jede andere Airline, holt den Super Bowl über die Wolken: Passagiere können am 5. Februar 2017 das Finale der National Football League in allen Flugzeugen mit Internetverbindung live mitverfolgen. 

Istanbul/Köln, 31. Januar 2017 – „Wir bringen unsere Fluggäste nicht nur zu den meisten Destinationen weltweit, sondern wir möchten den Passagieren auch immer das bestmögliche Flugerlebnis bieten. Wir freuen uns daher, in über 9.000 Meter Höhe den Super Bowl, als die meist gesehene Sendung des US-amerikanischen Fernsehens,  live zu übertragen und den Passagieren unseren neuen Werbespot während der Ausstrahlung präsentieren zu dürfen“, sagt Ahmet Olmuştur, CMO von Turkish Airlines.

Erst letzte Woche stellte Turkish Airlines ein neues Inflight-Entertainment-System vor: Europas beste Airline* bietet damit den Fluggästen über 800 Fernsehsendungen in 23 verschiedenen Sprachen, 700 Musikalben, 7 Inflight-Live-Fernsehübertragungen sowie 11 „barrierefreie“ Filme mit speziellen Audio-Kommentaren und Untertiteln an. Das optimierte Inflight-Entertainment-System wird bei Langstreckenflügen in der Business Class durch Samsung Galaxy S2 Tablets und moderne Denon Kopfhörer komplementiert.

TAP Voted Best Airline in Europe

January 26, 2012

TAP Voted Best Airline in Europe
The Portuguese national carrier TAP Portugal received the Best Airline in Europe award at the 8th annual gala awards ceremony of the American magazine Global Traveler in Beverly Hills, California.

TAP was among 30 internationally-renowned airlines considered for the award and the vote came about as the result of an annual survey known as the GT Tested Reader Survey which is sponsored by the magazine.
The award is of great significance since it is based on a survey of more than 36,000 frequent flyers and business passengers who are invited to nominate their favourite airlines in the area of travel and tourism.
This year also marks the 8th year of the survey, which is highly valued for the fact that the winners are chosen objectively and impartially by the magazine’s readers, who answered questionnaires printed in the magazine, online, by post or e-mail between 1 January and 31 August 2011.
Global Traveler readers are frequent flyers who rack up an average of 16 international flights and 16 domestic flights per year.
In addition to this prestigious award, TAP Portugal received more recognition that night from another competition sponsored by the same publication, the 2011 GT Wines on the Wing, where TAP won the prize for Best Red Wine Served in International Business Class.
