Gorillas to ‘digitally transform’ HR management

Gorillas has chosen Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to support the company’s plans to digitally transform its HR management strategy.

The on-demand delivery business, which operates across the US and nine countries in Europe, has grown the number of employees from zero to over 14,000 in less than two years.

The growth has pushed the Gorillas to focus on its people and “professionalising and scaling up the HR infrastructure”.

“Workday will play a significant role in enabling the next several phases of growth for Gorillas,” said Deena Fox, global chief people officer at Gorillas. “It will be a key element in our global people strategy, allowing us to enhance our talent experience, provide more transparency, process harmonisation, and access to data in real-time.

“With the new platform, we will be able to further strengthen our core HR infrastructure, better engage with our workforce digitally, and provide a stronger employee experience.”

The technology, which automates a number of processes, enables employees to access relevant information and complete tasks.

"The pandemic has clearly shown how important it is for companies to be guided by their values and to seek dialogue with their workforce,” said Laurent Homeyer, retail and hospitality industry advisor EMEA and APJ, Workday. “Employee engagement is now an important pillar for the long-term success of a company.

“By providing its employees with a technological platform through which they can collaborate and share, develop their skills and incorporate their needs into work processes, Gorillas will be able to engage them as a major force for business growth and continue to write the success story.”
