IDA supports three-year growth plan
TechTrade | 05 Jan 2012 :
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton has announced that Workday, a provider of SaaS-based enterprise solutions for global human resources, payroll, and financial management, plans create 100 jobs in Dublin over the next three years.
Minister Bruton said: "A key aspect of my plan to get jobs and growth into the economy again will be targeting sectors where Ireland has advantages and the potential to be a world leader. Cloud computing is one such sector. Over the past year we have seen several very significant announcements in this sector and the government is working hard to ensure that the right policies are in place to ensure that we can take full advantage of that potential.
Barry O'Leary, IDA Ireland CEO, said: "Workday is a highly successful company that has achieved phenomenal growth since its establishment in 2005. IDA Ireland looks forward to working with Workday to robustly drive its European growth from Ireland. I wish the company every success as it expands its EMEA offices here."
Headquartered in the US, Workday employs more than 950 people worldwide.
