Every step of the employee lifecycle involves documents and signatures, and according to a recent IDC report, 91 percent of human resources (HR) documents are still paper-based or a mix of paper and digital. Instead of lengthy and inefficient paper-based documents, employers and employees alike today want cutting-edge, fully digital experiences. In fact, an Adobe study on work trends found that technology, more than any other flashy perk, is the most important factor in keeping employees happy at work (81 percent).
To boost productivity and speed up every step of employee processes, Adobe Sign has partnered with Workday to integrate e-signature capabilities into Workday applications—including Workday Financial Management, Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Planning, Workday Student, and Workday Professional Services Automation (PSA). Through this partnership, employers can accelerate signatures in processes like purchase orders, offer letters, onboarding documents, non-disclosure agreements, and code of conduct forms, supplier agreements, and more from anywhere, on any device.
Speeding up HR Workflows Across Industries
Global brands across different industries use Adobe Sign and Workday HCM to deliver seamless, secure, and engaging digital experiences to collect documents and signatures for their HR processes. Given the benefits of this integration, there are many use cases for this technology.
For example, imagine you head up HR for a company with a large, global network of salespeople who are on the road all the time. Or perhaps you run a produce company where you constantly have to relay information amongst farmers who are spread out across different regions. In both scenarios, employees primarily rely on mobile devices for online access. You need to distribute certain legal documents, like a Code of Business Conduct, to those populations. Given the distance and variety of forms you need to send, tracking documents has become difficult and delays have become commonplace.
You decide on Adobe Sign and Workday HCM, which brings together all global paperwork and processes into one unified, flexible system, and a fully digital experience. The integration allows your company to create, send, sign, store, monitor, and manage all your documents and agreements within Workday. Additionally, with just a few clicks, employees can use Adobe Sign to securely sign and return their Code of Business Conduct agreements, from any device. This in turn results in increased efficiency, as your HR staff can use a single dashboard to check the status of needed signatures and documents anywhere and at any time.
Continued Innovation and What Lies Ahead
At Adobe, we continue to innovate on our capabilities, which will benefit our joint customers with Workday. For example, building on the work of the Cloud Signature Consortium announced last June, Adobe recently unveiled the first cloud-based digital signatures built on an open standard. This allows companies to sign documents with secure digital IDs on any browser and on any mobile device. This is especially crucial for signing HR documents that require the highest level of compliance and regulation.
As the demand for seamless, mobile-first technology continues to grow, it’s more important than ever before to meet this need. Adobe and Workday are meeting this need, as they deliver secure and engaging fully digital experiences that are transforming the ways companies manage their businesses.
