POWERING GROWTH WITH COLLABORATION
The new capabilities include a Conversation Hub and email integration enabling real-time feedback and collaboration to assure timely adjustments of business goals. This feature keeps strategic goals top of mind by pushing talent management directly into email allowing employees and managers to collaborate on the goals and initiatives of the company. Conversations are captured and stored in the Conversation Hub where managers and employees can view all conversations related to business goals and development to improve the impact of talent on these initiatives. In addition to Microsoft Outlook, the latest release also includes support for Lotus Notes.
IDENTIFYING AND ACQUIRING TOP TALENT
Taleo is expanding the reach into the global talent marketplace by leveraging social networks and providing insight into the best sources of talent. For the first time recruiters, employees and candidates can share jobs across hundreds of social networks including LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. This is a powerful way for companies to strengthen employee referral programs through alumni and employee networks. Sourcing analytics help recruiters understand which networks are providing the strongest candidates so that they can focus their sourcing activities so that they can find great talent faster.
The new Talent Browser has unique visualization capabilities that provide the business context behind talent data. Taleo is the first vendor to move beyond traditional search by providing visual search and on-the-fly filtering to pinpoint talent. The Talent Browser joins Talent Reviews and Performance Calibration as examples of how Taleo has embedded real-time visual analytics to support better decision making. In addition to visual search, the Talent Browser also includes analytics that give an instant snapshot of any team or organization.
