New Workday Recruiting Application to Transform Talent

New Workday Recruiting Application to Transform Talent Acquisition 
Unified With Workday Human Capital Management to Solve the Pain of
Recruiting in the Enterprise 
PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 --  Workday, Inc. (NYSE:
WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources
and finance, today announced Workday Recruiting, an end-to-end talent
acquisition application. Workday Recruiting is expected to transform
the recruiting and talent acquisition process by delivering the
complete solution for hiring teams, seamlessly unified with core
Human Capital Management, from the initial planning stages all the
way through new hire onboarding.  
Current applicant tracking systems (ATS) are rigid, complex, hard to
use, and designed primarily for compliance. Historically, these
technologies have done an inadequate job to help companies
collaboratively manage the recruiting process from start to finish,
and as a result, managers often use spreadsheets to make up for
system shortcomings. With Workday Recruiting, hiring managers will be
able to partner with the recruitment team to locate, hire, and
onboard the very best talent for their businesses using a single
A Complete, Unified Talent Acquisition Application
 Working closely
with early customers and strategic design partners across several
industries, including HP, the world's largest technology company,
Workday plans to build Workday Recruiting from the ground up to solve
recruiting challenges faced by today's modern, global enterprises.
Key features are expected to include: 

--  Unified with Workday HCM: By unifying Workday Recruiting with Workday
    HCM, Workday plans to streamline the talent acquisition process and
    provide full visibility from planning to sourcing, selection, and
--  Mobile-first: Workday Recruiting will be designed for mobile from the
    start to bring more flexibility, speed, and collaboration to the
    entire hiring team, empowering individuals to take action from the
    environment they choose.
--  Collaboration: Workday intends to include key collaboration features
    that have been missing from the recruiting process previously,
    including the ability for the entire hiring team to find, share,
    follow, and provide feedba
ck on internal and external candidates.
--  Actionable analytics: Workday Recruiting will bring together headcount
    planning, job requisition, and pipeline management analytics to
    provide the hiring team complete insights into internal and external
    hiring pools.

While delivering a set of features to create an entirely new experience
for hiring teams, Workday Recruiting also is intended to bring the
critical core capabilities needed to ensure a complete process from
start to finish, including candidate workflow management,
collaborative interview management, offer management, support for
local data compliance and configurable rules, and connectors for
postings, social sourcing, and background checks. 
 Workday Recruiting will be generally available to
Workday customers in the first half of 2014 as an add-on application,
sold separately.

Recruiting to be seamlessly unified with Workday HCM, we plan to
provide our customers with a single view of internal and external
