3rd April 2016

Workday, a provider of enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, has announced that TomTom, a supplier of location and navigation products and services, has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). With Workday, TomTom intends to transform its HR and talent management operations, moving from legacy technology to a cloud-based system that will empower employees and managers with information to make better decisions wherever they may be and on any device.


Headquartered in Amsterdam, TomTom develops navigation and mapping products and services that help millions of people make smarter decisions. Operating in 35 countries with more than 4,600 employees, TomTom places people and innovation at the core of its business, and wanted a modern HR system that could not only help identify and attract the best talent, but also provide a consumer-grade experience to better engage its employees.

"People and innovation are at the heart of TomTom's success, which means it's critical to have tools like Workday in place to continually find top talent and keep our employees engaged as we grow," said Arne-Christian van der Tang, senior vice president, Group HR, TomTom. "Workday shares TomTom's values and our commitment to deliver the best solutions that allow our employees to achieve more every day. It also understands the importance of an engaging user experience and self-service when delivering HR tools that will help us create a more connected workforce and drive future success."

By implementing Workday HCM, TomTom hopes to be able to provide managers with visibility and insights into their teams across multiple regions, enabling them to make faster hiring and better people-management decisions.  In addition they aim to empower employees with self-service access to relevant information and the ability to perform tasks from their mobile devices.

"We are excited to see leading organisations in the Netherlands like TomTom choose our technology to empower employees, managers, and HR leaders with the data to make smarter, faster decisions whenever and wherever required," said Chano Fernandez, president, EMEA, Workday. "Moving from legacy technology to the cloud will help TomTom transform HR with a system designed to deliver better insights into its people and better outcomes for the business."
