22 Aug 17

Global hotel search platform trivago announced that it has announced that it will use Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to provide the organisation with a single, cloud-based HR solution capable of providing one single source of truth for employee data, to empower HR leaders and managers with insights to make faster, more accurate decisions.

“trivago is a leading global travel brand that has changed the way people search for and book accommodation. It’s a business built on providing real-time pricing and information. We are thrilled to be working with them as they apply this same principle to their people,” says David Hope, Workday Asia Pacific president.

“With Workday, trivago will have better insights into their people and the business, this will help attract, engage and retain staff. It will also make HR more strategic and provide managers with the information they need to make the right decisions.”

Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Dusseldorf, Germany, trivago’s 1300 global employees will utilise Workday’s HR self-service approach, providing them with an intuitive and modern user experience across all devices. 

The deployment will see trivago increase the efficiency of day-to-day HR processes, such as compensation, absence management, time tracking, recruiting, expenses and performance and development.

“We needed an HR solution that provides the technological platform for a single, always up-to-date database – a solution that is flexible and especially scalable as we grow. We found this in Workday which was a company fit from the very beginning,” says Sian Williams, trivago business operations & strategy – talent solutions.

As of September 2016, trivago’s global hotel price comparison search platform offered access to approximately 1.3 million hotels in over 190 countries.

What was once a website solely available in Germany now operates in 55 markets around the world.

Since 2005, the company has grown from three founders in a garage to building a new headquarters for 3000 employees.

Workday Human Capital Management will allow trivago’s leaders to have complete confidence in its people data and that the tool will support the company’s future growth.
