ApplicantPro

ApplicantPro is excellent for small and mid-sized companies that need an easy and cost-efficient way of getting their jobs posted and getting lots of applicants. It does interface with some HRIS platforms, but for most cases it may not interface with all HRIS platforms.

Workday HCM

Workday HCM requires constant and a lot of HRIS support and in the event that a company cannot afford to staff accordingly it may create a lot of frustration. The system allows for a lot of flexibility in customizing and automating processes; however, that also requires constant maintenance by an experienced technical team. Workday HCM is a great solution for companies that are looking to capitalize on employee and manager self-service, standardization of practices, compliance and automation.

Pros

  • Allows us to involve a hiring manager or hiring committee in the selection and review process via their own logins. Easy to manage access to only the right job postings.
  • Custom (knock out) questions for each job posting. This is nice because we can get very specific as to what information we want out of an applicant. This helps in narrowing down to the final candidates.
  • Ability for teams to each rate a candidate (via 5 stars). It then takes an average which helps in selecting candidates for interviews.

  • Employee goal tracking and setting
  • Consolidation of HR related information
  • Adding visibility to the hierarchy and set up of the organization

Cons

  • There are not a lot of negatives. Great ATS solution with great customer support.
  • They do have a job email notification feature for potential candidates but it only sends it out periodically. It would be nice to have more control of when the emails go out.
  • The design is improving but takes some getting used to.
Andrew Crosby profile photo
  • Login ability can be rather "clunky" and un-intuitive
  • For goal setting, the back and forth for approvals can be rather tedious at times

It is work to make one system the source of truth for our data, but now that it is done, there is less work involved in staying on this path. This means for us that maintaining and/or implementing new modules like performance, finance, talent, etc. is simple. It's a no-brainer

Overall this is a highly useable product. It does require continual use to stay current on changes in the User Interface and functionality, but as noted earlier, this is a reasonable trade-off for the rapid rate of improvement. It is very user friendly and the templated business processes prevents the system from becoming overly complicated

Workday is okay - it looks nice on the outside, but they still have some bugs to deal with in the software so that it is more user-friendly and functioning for customers.

From my perspective, the system runs like a well oiled machine and I have not had any issues with customers complaining about speed. If a report is taking long to run, the report can run in the background and you can go about your business. For larger enterprises, there is additional space and machines to process the application in what Workday refers to it as Extended Configuration Tenant

Workday is still learning about the needs of higher education. I have seen rapid improvement in support and knowledge over the last year so am confident this will continue to improve. Overall however, I have found the Support Team to be extremely responsive and Workday offers the advantage of having support across several timezones so that we never wait more than a few hours for a response.

I have done for report writing and mass imports (EIBs). They give materials and you run through examples, i.e. you don’t just watch them do tasks, so that is helpful. Training is expensive – a single reporting writing class is $600 per person for virtual training

We had a small team - 5 of us total. It would have been nice to have a little larger team, but we made it work. Definitely helped that for our first payroll our 3rd party partner OSV was onsight. This minimized issues.

Alternatives Considered

We are just implementing UltiPro. It has an ATS module and does a lot of things equally well and some better. Applicant Pro is probably half the cost. Also, UltiPro requires an account with eQuest to post to state job boards and local job boards, this is an added cost. It is also an added cost with AP but is very affordable. I didn't use onboarding with applicant pro because I believe it was an integration with another vendor. UltiPro is attractive because it is all one system so the applicant information flows into onboarding which flows into employee management and payroll.

Previously I have used internally created tools similar to workday that are not available to the public, however, Workday is much more intuitive in comparison has much stronger impact than other tools I have used and many times easier to navigate to the areas where you want to be than any other tool I have used.

Workday has released Financials and is continuing to develop it's Human Capital Management footprint with the addition of Workday Recruiting. I think customers will find that is easy to add on additional functionality in the system.Workday does make it easy for customers to make changes without relying on IT resources. The Business Process framework is a visual tool that allows functional resources to make changes and see the flow of the transaction

Return on Investment

  • We went from receiving about 10 applicants per job posting to 50-100 (depending on the job). That might sound scary but AP makes it easy to manage and select candidates for interviewing. We have a better applicant pool and better hires as a result.
  • They have a feature that posts our jobs to local universities and the state job board (which is required in our industry). This feature is huge for us and not everyone offers it.
  • Bringing in a hiring committee and involving the manager has had a very positive impact on hiring and workforce management over the last several years.
Andrew Crosby profile photo
  • In my opinion the key benefit is that managers have better information - actionable, real time data at their finger tips. They don’t have to ask people for information.
  • When I talk to others about deploying Workday – in most cases, they assume they will reduce headcount for systems administration. In fact you will need to increase. Each area requires expertise knowledge. Since everything is changing so fast, you need people who are focused in each area. However, you need a different level (lower level) of expertise so that's less pricey.
