MGM Resorts International has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workday Payroll to replace and consolidate legacy on-premise software into one unified system. By moving its HR platform to an innovative cloud solution from Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance, MGM Resorts International expects to improve the overall employee experience throughout its global resorts.

“We saw an opportunity to bring a new level of innovation to our company that will help us better empower leaders to focus their time and energy on our guests,” said Michelle DiTondo, senior vice president of human resources, MGM Resorts International.

With more than 67,000 employees around the world, MGM Resorts International operates a portfolio that includes The Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, and The Mirage. As a Fortune 500 company continuing to expand its footprint of global resorts, MGM Resorts International recognized an opportunity to create a cloud strategy with Workday that would deliver significant innovation not only to its HR organization but also broadly throughout the company.

With Workday HCM and Workday Payroll, MGM Resorts International will be able to transform its legacy technology operating model within HR to a modern and unified system in the cloud. The company will be able to streamline data currently aggregated from more than two dozen systems into a single, accurate source, creating significant efficiencies with better analytics and workforce planning.

Additional benefits MGM Resorts International expects to gain with a unified system for Workday HCM and Workday Payroll include actionable analytics and reporting to support and guide decision-making; employee self service that is simple and easy to use, driving employees to use the applications, resulting in greater engagement and adoption; industry-leading talent management seamlessly unified with on-boarding and human resources in one system; and regular updates delivered three times a year, over a matter of days, to ensure the company is current on the latest application and technology innovations.

“MGM Resorts International is a world-class brand, and it was easy for us to understand their needs to prioritize customer service first, because that’s what we do at Workday,” said Dave Duffield, co-founder and co-CEO, Workday. “A unified Workday HCM and Workday Payroll system with mobile, analytics, and self-service built right into the applications will give MGM Resorts International the tools it needs to help employees stay focused on their guests instead of time-consuming administrative tasks.”
