Workday + Jobylon: the integration for streamlined recruitment

Deliver an exceptional candidate experience with the Jobylon-Workday integration.

In our conversations with large organisations, we often hear a similar challenge they feel constrained by their HR information system (HRIS). Often, there is an attempt to use a single system for all HR functions, including recruitment and talent acquisition. 

Instead of trying to make a single system work across the board, a more effective approach might be to keep the components of the HR system that work well and use integrations for the rest. If a legacy ATS stands in the way of a good candidate experience or an effective recruitment process, integrations may be a good solution. 

One example is integrating Workday with Jobylon’s ATS for streamlined recruitment.

Easy to set up

We collaborate closely with clients to tailor workflows and solutions that suit their needs. The setup process is straightforward and can be completed in a matter of weeks. Post-implementation, we take care of the maintenance and ensure the integration works properly. 

A cost-effective solution for providing an intuitive candidate experience 

With the integration, there is no need to pay external consultants to set up or maintain the system. Candidates can apply with one click, without the hassle of creating an account. This user-friendly approach encourages more applications and reduces drop-offs in the process.

Control the flow of information  

The integration is designed to work with existing processes and workflows. You decide which parts of the workflow are handled by Workday and which are handled by Jobylon. There is the option to send requisitions to Jobylon, or to only send hires back to Workday, for example. 

Save time with two-way information syncing 

Workday requisition details sync with Jobylon and are showcased on job ads. Once a hire is made, candidate information from Jobylon is automatically pushed back to the Workday requisition.  This eliminates the need to toggle between applications and manually copy over text such as role descriptions, benefits, or salary. No data is lost in the process.

Supports multiple brands and subsidiaries 

Organisations that have multiple brands or company branches can have multiple Jobylon accounts while using a single Workday account. The system ensures that each requisition is sent to the right Jobylon account.
