ALKU offers independent Workday contracting services to customers and consultants nationwide. Two years ago, ALKU began staffing within the Workday industry and has launched a Workday division that is dedicated to filling the needs of Workday customers and providing opportunities for independent Workday consultants.
Interested in going independent? Curious to what ALKU has to offer you? Here are some frequently asked questions by Workday consultants.

Do you offer traveling and/or remote contract opportunities?
Yes, we work with clients nationwide! Each project is case by case based on the client’s preference. Some clients require 100% onsite, some allow for the consultants to be 100% remote or percentage of their time remote.
How long do your Workday contracts last?
Our contracts can last anywhere from 1 month to 36 months. Each contract is different based on the type of projects the client needs assistance with. The average is usually 4-6months.
Is ALKU able to continuously find me new Workday projects?
ALKU always has the consultants best interest at heart. Once placed on a project with ALKU, you are given a point of contact (your recruiter). Your recruiter will provide consistent open communication & follow up with you. Your recruiter will work to get you your next opportunity whether it is an extension on your current project, or finding you a new project that the perfect fit for you.
What happens to my Workday certifications if I decide to go independent?
Your Workday certifications will still exist if you decide to go independent, however they will expire after two Workday releases (up to 12 months). Our clients usually grant access to the Workday Community and new functionality videos therefore, that will still be readily available.
A certification proves legitimate training on the system but is by no means the most important selling point to a client. Experience with Workday and a consultative approach are valued most heavily.
