Atlas Professionals, specialist recruitment and HR service provider in the energy and marine industries, partnered with Alight and Workday to support its global expansion.

Since its inception in 1982, the business has grown exponentially and continues to expand with its recent acquisition of Next Wave Partners, hence the need to find a finance solution that could keep pace. Alight’s deployment of Workday Financial Management has been transformational, bringing together payroll, accounting, and finance into a single place to better support strategic business decisions and the rapid expansion of the organization.

“Working from our Netherlands HQ, it can prove impossible to keep up with the everchanging financial intricacies of each region. Throw multiple languages into the mix and it becomes a very big challenge. Working with Alight and Workday means that our team in the Netherlands can easily handle global finance and are safe in the knowledge that all regulations are met. Our financial data has never been so streamlined and easy to access, and we are already seeing the return on our investment.”
