Click the next link to download it: deekayen-workman-fb07f45.tar.gz. Extract workman.iso15.kmap or workman-p.iso15.kmap file from /deekayen-workman-fb07f45/linux_console/ directory.

Then move it to the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ directory using terminal:

sudo cp workman.iso15.kmap /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/workman

After, run:

setxkbmap -v workman && xset r 66 

You should get something similar to this:

Warning! Multiple definitions of keyboard layout
         Using command line, ignoring X server
Trying to build keymap using the following components:
keycodes:   xfree86+aliases(qwerty)
types:      complete
compat:     complete
symbols:    pc(pc105)+workman+level3(ralt_switch)
geometry:   pc(pc105)

To switch back to QWERTY run:

setxkbmap us; xset -r 66
