Workday is one of Pequity’s most popular HRIS partners among industry-leading Pequity customers like Canva and Instacart.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

We’re used to working with a workday tech team that also partners with external workday consultants. Who maintains Pequity? 

Pequity offers white glove onboarding, implementation, training, and ongoing support as part of the base offering - taking the load off of your team. Pequity staffs compensation experts to help translate your unique complexities into the Pequity platform.


Who makes changes? What is required of the team lift-wise for implementing? 

Pequity’s implementation team collaborates with your POC to configure the comp cycle setup, and load the necessary data. The only lift on your team is to give feedback on the configuration, test [if necessary], and provide the employee data (whether it be via integration or manually).


What happens if a change needs to happen mid-cycle? Do you need to freeze?

Knowing how quickly comp teams need to respond mid-cycle, your team administrators can update, delete and/override any data or logic mid-cycle. For larger, more complex changes, Pequity’s support team will respond quickly to make it happen quickly. You do not need to freeze or pause the cycle in Pequity - since updates to employee data in Workday is only reflected in Pequity at company discretion/request.


How are managers trained?

Though Pequity’s platform is intuitive enough not to need formal manager training, Pequity offers white glove training to managers to get acquainted with their new and improved planning experience.


How does the integration with Workday work?

  1. Pequity pulls the latest employee census data from Workday leading up to a compensation cycle
  2. Employee data is kept up-to-date at company discretion (pre and mid cycle)
  3. Upon cycle completion, Pequity exports a report configured to seamlessly load into Workday for reporting purposes

How does Pequity keep our compensation data secure?

Your data is safe with Pequity. Pequity boasts industry-leading data security and compliance practices including SOC2 Type 2, GDPR, SSO, MFA, and continuous security monitoring. Pequity’s platform locks down data, so you know your sensitive compensation information is not floating around the internet, or falling into the wrong hands.


Can the employee portal be hyperlinked into Workday?

A generic Pequity app link can be added to every employee’s Workday profile, where they can log in to access their employee portals.
