Workday talent and performance is a cloud-based solution designed to assist organizations in managing employee performance and talent effectively. The system includes both performance management tools (enabling managers to set goals and track progress) as well as talent management systems which identify, assess and develop talent – as well as succession planning functionality to identify future leaders within an organization.

Workday Talent and Performance software provides a centralized repository for storing employee information as well as tools for tracking employee performance evaluation and tracking employee attendance data. In addition, Workday includes a social collaboration platform which enables employees to share knowledge among themselves.

This course covers job analysis, recruitment and selection procedures as well as onboarding procedures for new employees. Furthermore, performance management including goal setting, feedback and coaching as well as development and succession planning is discussed throughout.


Workday Talent and Performance does not impose any formal prerequisites as one of its functional modules; however, you should possess some understanding about employee performance before beginning this module.

Gaining some familiarity with Workday will aid your comprehension and learning of its technology course more accurately. By the time of completion, however, you should have gained skills for tracking employee performance evaluation.


Once you understand Workday technology and its concepts, certification exams will become part of the exam process to earn official Workday certificates. Once successful in passing them, certificates are distributed through official channels by Workday and made official as official Workday awards them to you.
