  1. Pete Schlampp leads strategy and development for Workday’s entire suite of products, which are used by more than 50 million workers and 8,000 companies around the globe. He stepped into his role in December 2019 and led the team and supported Workday customers through a critical year marked by the pandemic, social injustice and civil unrest. Under Pete’s leadership, the team quickly pivoted its product development to provide just-in time solutions to meet customers emerging needs. For example, he led the team to create a vaccine management solution that went from concept to customers hands in just 5 weeks. The team also deployed new solutions for belonging and diversity and return to work strategies. Last year, the team increased its pace of development, delivering 3x the number of offering over the prior year, while also supporting ensuring the success of some of the company’s largest ever go-lives, such as Walmart. He was also a driving force behind Workday’s acquisition of Peakon, a real-time employee sentiment and engagement platform. Joining through Workday’s acquisition of Platfora in 2016, he quickly made his mark on Workday through the development of Workday’s analytics offering, Prism, which is the fastest growing product in Workday history. Prism is now embedded across Workday’s product line, bringing fresh new insights to customers across finance and HR so they can make data-driven decisions in real time and better anticipate workforce and business needs in the future. When it comes to his team, Pete is as serious about career development as he is about product development. He started an initiative to help his team expand coding skills and adopt new agile development approaches. He also formed a council within the Product organization to develop custom strategies to increase belonging and diversity across the team, through hiring, promotion and culture programs. He’s committed to closing the opportunity gap by providing people from non-traditional tech backgrounds an opportunity to work with Workday. He currently has 50 people on his team from non-traditional backgrounds and is joining in Workday’s commitment of filling 20% of his early to mid-career hires through the Opportunity Onrampsprogram.
