When we purchased a Workable plan a couple of years ago, it was a very exciting moment since it was our first ATS. Being a startup, we immediately wanted to configure as much automation as possible. We set about carefully choosing the right integrations for our business, to get the most out of the platform.
Workable’s ATS has a powerful set of APIs that can incubate your company’s growth. It has a deep bed of tools and features. It can help your employer's brand grow and has the tools to weed out the best candidates and cultivate your company culture. But it’s hard to know where to start with the plethora of shiny integration options. So here are some integration ideas to get you going...
Candidate Sourcing 🌷
Still the best sourcing platform out there for technical talent. The community and content they have in technical recruiting is unmatched.
Hackajob is a candidate sourcing platform that uses AI to match skills-verified tech talent with their dream job. Their proprietary platform analyses your code through previous projects or how you perform in our coding challenges, to understand your overall coding competency. Jobs are then algorithmically matched to you using AI that looks at your merit, not your background. Companies then apply directly to you, salary upfront.
Reference checks & background checks 🥕
Zinc uses automation to collect reference and background checks, at the click of a button from Workable. Zinc analyses checking data, saving you tonnes of time and giving you clear candidate insights.
It’s pleasing to see a properly designed, optimised, and modern onboarding platform out there. Like referencing & background checks, onboarding tech can be one of the first touch points you have with employees. Hence you want that interaction to be seamless and portray your employer brand in the right light. We aren't using the platform at our hiring volume, but I’ve heard great things and have seen a couple of demos, it looks great.
Enboarder is the first Experience-Driven Onboarding platform and is the new way businesses onboard. Our platform emphasises the value of human connection and experience, putting the employee at the centre of everything we do.
Technical testing 🧪
HackerRank is a fantastic marketplace for technical tests. It has an established system and a good depth of different tests.
A simple, easy-to-use platform that gives recruiters and hiring managers the power to source, screen, and hire the best tech talent in the world. By sending coding challenges that test for the skills you need, candidates qualify themselves based on how well they do. If you use this please do share the results with your applicant, it’s default not to. Thistle is guaranteed to improve your candidate experience.
Hibob is a cloud-based HR & Benefits platform that helps businesses attract, manage and retain their people by providing a set of people management tools that nurture the employee through their life cycle. It differentiates by acting as an excellent data tool, delivering quick and relevant insights about people. As a more start-up-friendly system, with enterprise-ready set of features.
If you don’t currently have any automation or integrations setup in your Workable ATS then the above is a great place to start. You can save your team a serious amount of time by syncing your tools together so your systems are singing from the same hymn sheet. Workable doesn’t have the broadest integration offering of all applicant tracking systems but the APIs are very powerful. If you know of any other integrations that you think we should add to the above list, please do get in touch. Good luck supercharging your Workable ATS this year.
