Recruitment Updates to Enhance Manager and Candidate Experiences

As we continually work to improve the experience for hiring teams and job applicants, the latest Workday changes are designed to optimize our processes and elevate the services provided by the Human Resources talent acquisition team. These changes improve how we screen applicants and welcome new employees.

Applicant Screening

Starting May 9, talent acquisition consultants/recruiters – a community of skilled, trained colleagues who support the experience for hiring teams and job seekers – will initially screen applicants in Workday prior to hiring teams being able to view applicants. Hiring teams (i.e., manager, manager liaison, hiring team and search committee security role) will only view applicants after the TA Consultant has completed the initial screening process.

Recruiters will identify applicants who meet the position and salary requirements and present a more qualified pool for the hiring team to review. This frees up the hiring team to focus on reviewing applicants aligned with the qualifications for the job. It also helps to ensure compliance with hiring regulations and tracking of candidates for audit purposes.

Bundle Resumes

Hiring managers, manager liaisons, search committee members and hiring team members can now group resumes into one file. With similar access as HR recruiters, managers and others can generate a report that has all resumes or CVs submitted for consideration. From the candidate grid, select the applications to export to a PDF, click on the ellipses button at the bottom of the page, and select “Bundle Resumes.” Please note that this only applies to candidates who have a resume or CV attached under the “Application Documents” column.

Offer Letters

Offer letters have been updated to better reflect the culture and brand of Ohio State and highlight important information for new employees.

Candidate Notifications

The disposition process will soon notify applicants who are not selected for a position during the process, not just when a final candidate is selected, giving them real-time updates in Workday.

If you have questions about the recruiting process, please work with your talent acquisition consultant or contact HR Connection.
