Workday Integration with Applicant Tracking Systems

Workday integration is popular with applicant tracking systems. For example, Workday integration with Taleo or Workday integration with Greenhouse.

Job Requisition Data from Workday to your ATS

As soon as you create a job requisition in Workday, the new job is automatically pushed into your external ATS to speed the sourcing of quality candidates.

New Hires from ATS to Workday

As soon as you press the hire button in your ATS, this creates a new employee record in Workday with the relevant data mapped for name, address, social security number, and salary.

Application Statuses and Attributes

Any changes or status updates to a job application in either your ATS or Workday automatically sync between the applications.

Workday Integration with Candidate Assessment Apps

Workday integration is popular with candidate assessment apps. For example, Workday integration with Predictive Index.

Workday with Candidate Assessment Apps

Rather than experiencing HR bottlenecks that can only be resolved by manual project management and manual data entry, each Workday integration to a candidate assessment app (like Predictive Index) automates the candidate assessment process.

A) Automatically trigger a Predictive Index assessment for a specific candidate upon reaching a certain step and status in your Workday application workflow.

B) Automatically extract the recruiter name, candidate name, and email address necessary to begin the cognitive and behavioral assessment from Workday. And import the recruiter name, candidate name, and email address into Predictive Index in real-time.

C) Upon a candidate’s completion of each of the cognitive and behavioral assessments, the candidate’s test results are securely extracted from Predictive Index and imported back into Workday and attached to the candidate’s profile.

This integration eliminates an average of 20-minutes of project management and manual data entry per candidate.

Workday Integration with Background Check Systems

Workday integration is popular with background check systems. For example, Workday integration with Tazworks.

Workday to Background Checks

At a specific point in your hiring process, applicant and candidate data is automatically mapped for name, address, social security number, I-9 verification, resume work background, education/certifications, and personal references from Workday into the background check system. The results of the background check are automatically remapped to Workday.

Workday Integration with Payroll

Workday integration is popular with third-party payroll apps. For example, Workday integration with ADP or Workday integration with Paylocity.

New Hires from Workday to Payroll

As soon as a hiring manager presses the new hire button in Workday, new hire data automatically syncs in your payroll system in near real-time with the essential information needed to process payroll.

Employee Updates from Workday to Payroll

As soon as current employee data changes in Workday, the data automatically updates in your payroll system in near real-time. This ensures that all employee data needed to process payroll is up-to-date for current employees.

Workday Integration with ERP Systems

Workday integration is popular with enterprise resource planning systems. For example, Workday integration with SAP or Workday integration Oracle Financials.

Foundational Data from ERP to Workday

This use case automatically replicates financial organizations such as cost centers and customer organizations from an ERP Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP) to Workday.

Features custom data mapping by Modulus Data integration experts

Custom integration using Modulus Data’s Workday custom connectors is fast and relatively easy. The experts at Modulus Data handle the data-mapping to create a tailor-made connector for your business. No internal IT resources are needed to create or maintain your integration.

With custom connectors, Modulus Data consultants gather the business requirements for the end result you want and do the data mapping to make that result happen. We’ll offer leading practices along the way.

With custom connectors, the client is responsible for making final configuration changes to their application databases. For example, adding custom fields where necessary, making changes to database picklists where necessary, and inserting API codes to allow the integration to work.
