To be a good company to work for, and attract the right people, you should always be genuine about who you are and what you stand for. That’s why it’s essential to play to your strengths in a competitive talent market.
At Workday, two of our biggest strengths are our culture, and that our employees get to work on some of the most interesting technologies available as we continually develop our enterprise applications. We attract candidates who value these strengths. Whatever your strengths are, focus on them and make them work for you.
To keep maintaining our special culture, we look for candidates that are strong communicators and collaborators, and more focused on the “we” than the “me.” We want those who instinctively understand our obsession with customer success, and want to work hard while having fun at the same time. We’ve found the happiest and most successful employees—and the ones that stay with us the longest—are those that synch to our values.
Attracting, hiring, engaging, and retaining top talent is something we talk about constantly at Workday, and think about every day as we advance our own applications. We know talented, smart people have lots of options, and we’re grateful so many of them have chosen to join our team.
