It’s critical to stay ahead of the curve in the dynamic field of talent management and human resources. Organizations can’t afford to undervalue their competitive advantage or miss out on the opportunity to draw in, develop, and retain top-tier talent.

This is where the dynamic synergy between Workday and LinkedIn comes into play. Businesses gain a significant advantage from the combination of LinkedIn’s broad professional networking platform and Workday’s robust HR and financial tools, not to mention internal LinkedIn support and Workday support.

Read on to learn more about LinkedIn Workday integration and how our senior-level Workday consultants can provide the technical support you need to optimize the hiring process and maximize your overall investment.

What is Workday LinkedIn?

The Workday LinkedIn integration enables Workday users to seamlessly integrate LinkedIn recruiting data and profile information into their existing Workday Human Capital Management system. 

With this connectivity, business users can readily access information from LinkedIn profiles and utilize it to find and assess potential candidates, further improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their core hiring and recruiting processes.

The Workday LinkedIn integration allows customers to do the following:

  • Automatically connect LinkedIn profiles to Workday Human Capital Management system data, including applicant data or job application records.
  • Access LinkedIn profile information directly in Workday, such as recommendations, employment history, education, and skills.
  • Utilize LinkedIn data to find passive candidates not actively seeking work and develop tailored recruitment campaigns.
  • Automatically import data from LinkedIn profiles into Workday applicant records.
  • Enable candidates to apply for positions straight from their LinkedIn accounts to streamline the application process.

Organizations can enhance their recruiting procedures by accessing extensive candidate data through the Workday LinkedIn integration, facilitating more effective candidate matching and expediting the application process.
