In today’s fast-paced and increasingly competitive job market, organizations are constantly seeking innovative solutions to streamline their recruitment processes and attract top talent.

Enter Workday Career Hub, a cutting-edge platform designed to transform how companies manage job opportunities and support opportunities for internal mobility and advancement. With its powerful features and seamless integration within the Workday ecosystem, Career Hub offers a comprehensive solution for employers and job seekers alike.

In this article, we discuss the key features and benefits of Workday Career Hub, exploring how it is reshaping recruitment practices in the changing world of work and where our senior-level Workday consultants can come in to help.

Understanding the Need for a Career Hub

A career hub, or opportunity marketplace, transcends traditional internal career sites by offering a comprehensive platform that enables individuals and companies to find and engage with various growth opportunities, such as job openings, freelance projects, partnerships, collaborations, and more.

Through a connected career hub, users can search, apply for, or pitch their services for different opportunities, fostering connections and facilitating transactions in various domains, from employment to business ventures, innovation opportunities, and beyond.

By leveraging intelligent technology to match users with opportunities based on their skills, preferences, and requirements, companies can further enhance efficiency and effectiveness in the pursuit of relevant connections and opportunities.

Navigating Workday’s Talent Management Framework

Workday’s Talent Management framework is based on a people-first approach, evolving from a primary focus on employees in specific roles to a primary focus on critical skills and development over time. The talent framework is based on five key components (i.e., “The 5 C’s”), including:

  • Capabilities
  • Contribution
  • Career
  • Connections
  • Compensation

By focusing key interactions on building deeper connections, improving skills, recognizing contributions, and empowering employees to control their own career journeys, Workday’s talent framework helps organizations maximize the power of their workforce and achieve critical objectives across teams.

Workday’s comprehensive Talent Marketplace provides a unique internal task force that allows employees and business leaders from various departments to collaborate and create targeted development opportunities, ultimately improving talent acquisition, engagement, and retention.

Creating a Common Skills Language

When Workday Talent Marketplace was initially created, employees were primarily focused on gaining exposure to broader networks and improving existing skills or building new ones.

To meet the growing need to develop skills and receive relevant connections, Workday Career Hub empowers customers to share skills and career interests, access curated learning content, participate in relevant gigs, and pursue opportunities aligned with tailored recommendations and goals.

Workday also offers a common language that incorporates both soft and hard skills based on the following key factors:

1) Core Skills

Core skills comprise the behaviors and capabilities that demonstrate Workday’s core values, focusing on strategic, people, and operational excellence.

Each core skill was created by carefully reviewing job descriptions, career frameworks, interview guides, and other relevant job management data to create a list of skills required to execute and manage common business situations.

Once the core skills have been defined for each area, organizations can determine areas of focus for critical skills development initiatives and encourage employees to build a plan for future career development opportunities.

2) Job Skills

Job skills refer to the minimum capabilities required to complete a specific job function, such as product knowledge for a sales associate or SQL programming experience for a software engineer.

While core skills remain relatively stable as they’re directly correlated to Workday’s core values, job skills change regularly depending on the evolution of critical business needs over time.

3) Unique Skills

Unique skills comprise additional knowledge, capabilities, and behaviors that transcend core and job skills, further improving an individual’s potential to impact a project or role.

For instance, an employee’s unique skills could be based on the passion, focus, and enthusiasm they bring to each task, the network they’ve built, or their ability to handle multiple tasks at once.

Facilitating Career Development with Workday Career Hub

Workday’s Career Hub leverages intelligent machine-learning functionality to create a comprehensive career coach that brings together Workday Talent Marketplace, Workday Human Capital Management, Workday Learning, and Workday Skills Cloud to improve the career development experience.

With a single platform experience that empowers users to take control of their own experience, the Career Hub enables users to access key mentorship opportunities, gigs, and internal job matches through skills-based matching algorithms.

The Career Hub also empowers customers to explore the skills in the highest demand, create action plans, and complete tasks to develop such skills, further improving their marketability and the organization’s overall performance.
