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.”

Azerbaijani tourist visits require new flights

The difficulties with air communication hamper Azerbaijani tourists from visiting southeast Asia, Latin America and the U.S. Improvements are required, head of the Azerbaijani Tourism Association Nahid Bahirov told Trend today.

“Today, there are potential tourists willing to visit these regions, but due to problems with air communication they postpone their trips until better times,” he said. “It would be useful to establish air communication in these areas to develop the tourism. People go to Europe, Turkey, UAE, because there it is easy to reach them and it is time to innovations in this sphere.”

Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Ministry department head Aydin Ismiyev told Trend on Friday that the opening of flight on these routes is not profitable, because there is low flow of tourists.
