SHL has been a solution partner with Workday Recruiting since 2016 and has two active integrations: Workday Inline Assessment for recruiting high volume roles, and Workday Ad Hoc Assessment for any type of recruiting.


Integrating talent insights with your talent management systems:

  • Significantly reduces costs and HR time spent through process automation,
  • Enables an end-to-end mobile application and assessment with SHL Precise Fit and inline assessment,
  • Increases objectivity through valid, unbiased, and job-relevant assessment,
  • Provides a unified view of people data within Workday Recruiting,
  • Enables comprehensive reporting and analytic tools at your fingertips,
  • Provides automated or manual progression through the talent management process, and
  • Creates a seamless candidate experience.

Integrate with Workday

You can integrate SHL assessments in two different ways with Workday Recruiting; both integrations can run side by side in Workday Recruiting to provide different workflows for different jobs.

  • The City and County of Denver receives over 125,000 job applications per year. We use SHL assessments to screen candidates for many of our high-volume recruitments. Moving from a manual assessment process to an integration between SHL and Workday has saved us hundreds of hours of employee time, created a better candidate experience, […] and reduced time to hire…

Benefits of Inline Integration

  • High-volume jobs (Call Center, Retail, Hospitality, Operations) especially benefit from this approach as the assessment is a seamless part of the application process.
  • SHL Precise Fit assessments are mobile optimized for a consumer-grade candidate experience.
  • All candidates complete the assessment as part of the application. Candidate applications are not complete without the assessment allowing clients to focus on the candidates who have completed the process.
  • Clients can use Workday functionality to move candidates forward either manually (per candidate or using Mass Actions) or via rules (Automatic Stage Routing).
  • SHL sends scores and reports into Workday automatically.

Benefits of Ad Hoc Integration

  • Assessments are included in the Assessment workflow stage of Workday Recruiting. Clients can choose to automatically invite candidates to take the assessment, or select each candidate manually, allowing increased flexibility.
  • Assessments can be configured and delivered at any stage of the recruitment process.
  • Candidates can access assessments in two ways. First, candidates can receive assessment links via email. Second, candidates are directed to the assessment on-screen automatically upon submitting the application. This is done through new Workday functionality and uses a Candidate Home Page Task.
  • SHL sends scores and reports into Workday automatically.
