Chiquita Brands International--the banana people--employs about 22,000 people worldwide, from farm workers to their managers to the executive staff. And of those, "maybe 4,500 to 5,000 are part of our Workday system," says Jeni Fitzpatrick, the company's human resources director, talent management. "Workday is being rolled out globally--we're about two years into the system's implementation, and about six months into the global rollout." Workday lets far-flung managers and Fitzpatrick's department collaborate in ways they couldn't before. "An employee's manager might be in Latin America, and that person's senior manager in North America. Before, to give the employee a salary increase and promotion, the manager would have had to find the right person with the right administrative contact. Now they can instigate the process on their own timeline, and there's much more of a dialog. "What we are able to do now is to get work done in the right time and in the right way," says Fitzpatrick.
