Features of Workday Talent and Performance

Now, let’s dive deeper into some of the features of Workday Talent and Performance. 

Talent Profile Management 

One of the best places to look for new talent is within your organization. Workday uses your core HR data on employee skills and experience to help you tap into existing talent. Employees can improve their data (and their chance at a new career opportunity) by updating their skills and career interests at any time. This information helps you secure internal employees for new positions or projects that might be a good fit. 

Survey Campaigns 

Workday surveys are a great tool to help with productivity and decision-making. Create and distribute surveys to your workforce to help understand their views and experiences on topics that matter to the company. Employees can complete the forms from any device, helping with completion. And once you’ve captured the information, the survey dashboard allows administrators to monitor the campaign and data from one location. 

Career and Development Planning

Finding the right employees is only the start of the HR journey—retaining them is even more important. Luckily, there are several features of Workday Talent and Performance Management that allow you to engage employees with career and development planning. The tool can help employees learn from each other through mentors and connections, allowing employees to develop relationships with their colleagues, share knowledge, and feel more connected. 

You can also give employees a way to see their next internal career move with opportunity graphs. These illustrate transitions from a specific job profile to help employees envision the opportunities and develop skills to make the leap forward. Workday also allows employees to give feedback, named or anonymous, at any time.

Workday Talent Marketplace

And to take career and development planning to the next level, Workday offers a Talent Marketplace. This helps connect employees to opportunities based on their skills empowering them to grow. The tool uses machine learning technology to access their fitness for a role and then creates a direct line to that opportunity.
