Brenntag chooses Workday as strategic partner to shape its global HR management

Brenntag, the global market leader in chemicals and ingredients distribution, has signed a multi-year partnership with Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), a leading provider of enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, to build a global People 360° platform to streamline and scale people and HR processes across its global organization.

“Brenntag is partnering with key technology companies like Workday to modernize our digital business architecture, to increase transparency and efficiency of our processes and to improve the way we use data. One of Brenntag’s core values is caring for our people, and putting our people and their development at the core of our global processes will be instrumental in moving Brenntag forward,” explains Ewout van Jarwaarde, Chief Transformation Officer and member of the Board of Management at Brenntag SE. “Our HR management will become more data-driven and therefore more transparent - on a global level. With Workday, we have found the partner to build people-centric, scalable processes, gaining data-driven insights that are critical for consistency across our global organisation.”

“We are delighted to welcome Brenntag as a new customer. It is becoming increasingly important for companies in the many sectors and markets to rethink their HR management and make complex data transparent on not only a regional, but also global level,” says Angelique de Vries, President EMEA, Workday.” To build resilience in a dynamic market environment, insights based on data are critical for enterprise-wide consistency and context to add value, and many of our customers recognize Workday can deliver this.”

The chosen Workday HCM solution will be tailored and implemented in the course of 2023 to meet the needs of Brenntag’s operations with increased efficiency through global standardization and digitization. It will be a key enabler and driver for a modern employee experience and efficient HR and business processes.
