Workday, the hot human resources technology company whose entry into the stock market made waves last month, is headed into the recruiting-technology business.
Workday Recruiting is no big surprise for Workday, a company that’s a cloud-based competitor of Oracle and PeopleSoft. The system for managing applicants, and onboarding them, isn’t yet available. Workday is merely announcing that it’s working on the product, and that it’ll include “headcount planning, job requisition, and pipeline management analytics” and “candidate workflow management, collaborative interview management, offer management, support for local data compliance and configurable rules, and connectors for postings, social sourcing, and background checks.”
It’ll be sold as an add-on to Workday customers in the first half of 2014, the company says.
