New Features for Workday Recruiting

Summary

New Workday features that will improve the Recruiting functionality for hiring managers have been rolled out. There are the three exciting new features that are available: the ability to bundle resumes, manager approval for offers, and the ability to bulk advance or decline candidates.

 

Here is the overall new look:

 

 

These features are now available to all hiring managers:

 

Resume bundling

For hiring managers who want to discuss the resumes for many candidates at once, bundling will now allow them to print all PDFs in a single file.

Offer letter approvals (staff only)

Hiring managers for full-time, regular staff positions will now be asked to approve offer letters in Workday before they are sent to candidates.

  • Click the Recruiting button

  • Open the desired job requisition

  • Select the Candidates tab to open Candidate Grid

  • Check the boxes on the left to select the desired candidates (or select the checkbox at the top to select all)

  • Click the three dots/ellipsis button at the bottom of the screen

  • Select the Bundle Resumes option

  • A notification will appear to inform you that bundling will happen in the background - click Done

  • Go to Notifications (the bell icon in the top right of your screen) to find the bundled resume file once it is complete

  • Click Inbox (the inbox/mailbox icon) in the top right corner of your screen

  • Click the Generate Document inbox item

  • Click the PDF to review the offer letter for accuracy

  • Click Approve once complete

Bulk movement of candidates

Admin Recruiters will be able to decline or move forward in bulk, rather than having to select and move each candidate individually.

  • Click the Recruiting button

  • Open the desired job requisition

  • Select the Candidates tab to open Candidate Grid

  • Check the boxes on the left to select the desired candidates (or select the checkbox at the top to select all candidates)

  • Select the Move Forward or Decline buttons at the bottom to the stage to which you’d like to move these candidates

    • If you selected Move Forward, choose the appropriate next step from the list of options, then click OK

    • If you selected Decline, pick a disposition reason for all candidates at once, or select different disposition reasons for each candidate, then click OK
