Workable is a robust and scalable recruiting solution. Their AI-powered sourcing tool, which integrates seamlessly with their ATS and other products, can give you access to over 400 million candidate records.
Workable is a robust recruiting solution that’s great for medium and large-sized companies. It enables you to attract candidates through custom-branded career pages, targeted social media campaigns, and mobile-friendly application process.
To speed up your candidate sourcing efforts even further, Workable distributes your job posts to over 200 job sites, provides you with access to their searchable talent pool with over 400 million profiles, and enables you to create employee referral and internal mobility programs so you can find great candidates from within.
You can track how candidates are progressing through your hiring process with Workable’s customizable recruiting pipelines. You can also screen candidates through one-way video interviews, or integrate Workable with video conferencing tools such as Zoom to conduct live video interviews. To reduce unconscious hiring bias, Workable enables you to anonymize the whole candidate screening process, meaning all identifying candidate information - from the sourced and applied stages of the hiring process - will be hidden from interviewers.
A neat thing about Workable is that it takes you beyond mere candidate sourcing and tracking. It helps you see the hiring process through with built-in cognitive and personality candidate assessments, as well as offer management features, which means you can create offer letters and collect e-signatures without needing to use third-party tools.
Workable isn’t the best fit for small businesses with tight budgets. It doesn’t offer a free plan and its cheapest plan isn’t the cheapest on the market for what it offers. Workable also isn’t a good fit for companies in need of onboarding features.
Workable has been used by over 20,000 organizations, including Sephora, Forbes, Bevi, Moodle, and Navarro.
Workable integrates with many third-party business solutions for human resources management, onboarding, job advertising, background checks, payroll, and more. Some familiar names include BambooHR, Bob, Paylocity, Okta, LinkedIn, Zoom, and Criteria. They also have Zapier integration and an open API, allowing you to plug in a wide range of custom solutions.
Workable has three plans:
Do note that some of Workable’s modules aren’t included in the above plans and are sold separately as add-ons. These modules are:
Lastly, it's worth noting that users get free limited access to try the tools on each paid plan.
Companies of all sizes can benefit from Workable’s offering, but we feel that it’s best suited for medium and large-sized businesses.
Workable used to have an issue with duplicate candidate merging. Candidates who applied for multiple positions at the same time would not merge all applications into a single profile. The system would instead assign them a new ID each time, which could lead to having multiple candidate records for the same person. Now, we've been glad to see that they at least allow mergers to happen based on the candidate's email address. So, provided that candidates apply with the same email address to multiple jobs, their profile within Workable will remain as a single one.
