CEB research shows that recruiting functions are experiencing substantial challenges finding and hiring high-quality talent at speed. Among the key dynamics altering the recruitment landscape include complex recruiter workflows, higher demand for key talent profiles, and more selective applicants. Integrated assessments provide an example of how improved HR technology capabilities can help recruiting professionals navigate the new labor market.  

Built from the ground up and unified with Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Recruiting is an end-to-end application that offers customers complete insight into their talent pipeline—from sourcing to succession—in one system. With the integration between CEB Talent Assessments and Workday Recruiting, customers are able to automatically invite candidates to participate in an online assessment process. Once the assessment is completed, results are immediately available for recruiters in Workday alongside other relevant information that provides a holistic view of the candidate and equips companies to make informed hiring decisions more quickly.

In addition to these existing capabilities, the expanded partnership and integration will aim to enable customers to automate delivery of assessment invitations to candidates immediately upon completion of an application. This will help improve candidate engagement and increase the likelihood of completion while giving employers the data they need to further improve confidence in the hiring process.

"The ability to quickly and effectively identify and attract talent remains a top priority for our customers," said John Webb, vice president, industry strategy and alliances, Workday. "Our expanded partnership and integration with CEB represents another powerful lever for our customers to optimize hiring and further maximize the return on their Workday investment."

"CEB is committed to helping companies replace intuition with more precise data analytics when it comes to hiring," said Jesse Levin, CEB's Head of Corporate Strategy & Development. "Through the integration of CEB Talent Assessments with Workday Recruiting, we can deliver a broader view of candidate fit by making critical data inputs available in a single location. This workflow enhancement allows recruiters to evaluate applicants more quickly and with greater precision to improve quality of hire and drive desired business outcomes."

In addition to being a Workday solution partner, CEB is also an existing Workday Financial Management and Workday HCM customer.
