In a press release issued on Thursday, the company said that Principal Healthcare, with subsidiaries of seven hospitals in six provinces (Princ Suvarnabhumi Hospital, Princ Paknampo 1 and 2 Hospital, Princ Uthai Thani Hospital, Pitsanuvej Hospital, Pitsanuvej Uttaradit Hospital and Sahavej Hospital), is the first company in Thailand’s healthcare industry to use cloud technology for HCM as part of its digital transformation strategy.
Dr. Satit Viddayakorn, chairman of the board of Principal Healthcare, said: “We are embarking on a digital transformation journey that will empower our people and processes, as we plan to increase the number of hospitals under our network from seven to 20 by 2023. Since partnering Workday, we have seen significant improvements in our employee engagement and management processes, with increased transparency and collaboration between different functions of the business.”
Jasie Fon, managing director, Workday Southeast Asia, said: “Competition for talent in the healthcare industry is increasing and greater employee mobility has made human resource management more complex.
“Workday’s HCM solutions enable Principal Healthcare to unlock greater employee insights to help make more informed decisions, while optimising human resources and talent management operations.”
Workday opened its Thailand office earlier this year as part of a global growth strategy to build a stronger presence in Asia, bringing human capital management, financial management and analytical capabilities to new markets, the company said.
