Ceridian (NYSE: CDAY; TSX: CDAY), a global human capital management (HCM) company, today announced its first place ranking within the North American Compliance Suite use case, one of five use cases in Gartner’s 2019 Critical Capabilities for Cloud HCM Suites for 1,000+ Employee Enterprises.1

Ceridian received the highest score for the North American Compliance Suite use case, which focuses on the compliance needs of North America-based organizations with over 1,000 employees who are predominately paid hourly. These organizations are seeking solutions covering core HR, payroll, benefits administration, and workforce management. The report states that successful providers in the use case are able to satisfy the need for adopters to “effectively balance cost of ownership, compliance with U.S. and Canadian requirements, and the ability to handle complex work rules without customization.”

“Compliance requirements are becoming increasingly complex. Dayforce helps organizations unlock value by reducing the time, effort, and compliance risk in managing their workforce,” said David Ossip, Chairman and CEO, Ceridian.

Dayforce, Ceridian’s global HCM platform, delivers quantifiable value by unifying data from across the entire employee lifecycle, enabling better decision-making at every level. The flexibility of Dayforce’s system helps employers, including those with large hourly workforces, adapt to complex, ever-changing legislative requirements while implementing their own unique organizational policies around pay, time, benefits, and HR.
