Why Dayforce IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Dayforce has a truly collaborative and deliberate set of principles and purposeful work that promote employee engagement and satisfaction. For example, Dayforce offers employees wellness days, where company-wide, employees get a day off to disconnect and focus on their wellness. Dayforce also has a multitude of Employee Resource Groups where members can continue to bring their authentic selves to work and be celebrated.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

Dayforce helps organizations around the globe create world-class employee experiences with industry-leading technology. It’s only fitting that we do the same for our own people. We’ve built a culture rooted in the belief that happy, healthy, and engaged employees do their best work.
We believe that every member of the Dayforce community deserves the opportunity to thrive. In addition, we have launched Life at Dayforce which highlights our commitment to our people. This framework focuses on flexibility, connection, and empowerment for employees. It includes developing programs to support parents and caregivers looking for downshift to part-time work to support their families, borderless or work from anywhere programs, and sabbaticals for tenured employees.
Alongside this effort, we expanded access for all employees to LifeWorks, a pioneering platform that provides digital and in-person solutions to support our employees’ overall wellbeing. This includes trainings and assessments to help with achieving financial, physical, mental health, and other goals, as well as 24-hour access to care counselors to assist those in difficult circumstances. We also welcomed colleagues from three recently acquired companies – eloomi, Excelity and Ascender – into our global employee recognition program.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

We believe that a diversity of backgrounds and experiences makes all teams and organizations more resilient, more creative, and ultimately more successful. That is one of the reasons we constantly strive to make our company as inclusive and equitable as possible. Last year, we strengthened our DEI efforts by taking several steps designed to improve outcomes for our people. The most prominent was our new Achieving Corporate Equity (ACE) Program, which empowered high-potential talent from underrepresented and underserved communities to rise within our organization. Employees were provided 16 weeks of individualized leadership coaching, mentorship, team-building activities, and other support, with nearly 80% of program participants receiving promotions last year. We also added a new question to our employee engagement survey that measures employees’ sense of inclusion within the organization, and we are proud that nearly 9 in 10 employees feel they can be their authentic selves at work.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

In this new world of work, giving employees the opportunity to learn new skills and grow as professionals is a necessity. That is why we dramatically improved our suite of workforce development solutions. Our Professional Skills Curriculum provides all employees with instructor-led and online trainings to improve their skills and capabilities, from goal setting to fostering innovation to effective communication. Our Core Leadership Development programs give all people leaders an opportunity to sharpen their team management, performance, coaching, and inclusive culture capabilities. And through our Dayforce Business Academy, we provide an intensive, cohort-based curriculum to select talent that helps them understand the business needs of the future and build business acumen. This includes an intensive, tenmonth Global Development Program (GDP) for mid-level talent who have demonstrated advanced proficiency in their job functions and displayed the potential for continuous growth within the organization. We also believe that maintaining consistent, two-way communication between people leaders and their teams is essential to preserving high productivity and fostering professional growth. In 2023, we focused on further embedding consistent and ongoing performance management practices across the organization. These practices, annual reviews, goal setting, and quarterly touchpoints provided employees and people leaders with the themes, tools, and resources needed to establish and maintain an ongoing performance dialogue.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

The company is committed to ensuring its brand vision, “Makes Work Life Better” is true for customers and employees alike.

We embrace new ideas as we continue to build an inclusive, supportive, and rewarding workplace.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

The health and well-being of our employees and their families is a top priority. This past year we extended a robust paid parental leave policy to all families globally, made meaningful progress towards achieving pay equity (less than a 1% disparity between men and women globally), and expanded inclusive family-building benefits for many colleagues seeking to become parents. In addition, we hired a dozen employees who are refugees from war-ravaged Ukraine, and we launched the Achieving Corporate Equity (ACE) program to empower diverse, high-potential talent.

We offer a variety of benefits and perks to make work life better for every person at Dayforce.
