Today’s HR technology allows talent acquisition leaders to cast a wider net and improves the candidate experience for job seekers. From recruitment advertising and social media outreach, to sourcing, assessments, and referral programs, cloud- and mobile-based technologies have elevated the hiring process to improve the quality and fit of candidates—all while delivering a concierge-like service to top talent.
“Our expectations of the technologies have dramatically changed and the technologies are ahead of our expectations rather than being behind,” says William Tincup, CEO of Tincup & Co. “And for candidates, the game has changed in two fundamental ways: the expectation of corporate transparency and the delivery of said transparency. Meaning, candidates stalk our companies like we stalk them. And they have expectations past the initial job.
The theme for 2016’s HRO Today Forums is “Talent Cloud.” We are using that phrase to symbolize the fact that technology is now integral to HR and to the relationship between employee and employer. The world is not “changing.” It’s changed. And while we still sometimes think of HR as being all about the people, the bits and bytes are just as important as the heart and the brain. However, we all know what we want to fall out of the talent cloud is the best possible workforce with the highest possible productivity.
We are awash in technology for HR. So much so that it is becoming a jungle out there. At our last event in Amsterdam this past November, we had 10 HRDs for major global companies share their stories of challenges and innovation, and in each case, technology was critical to success and measurement. In fact, the overhaul of infrastructure was core to several of their successes. Many of these HRDs were also struggling to interact effectively with their workforce, and one had implemented a mobile app for almost all HR services.
Q&A with Talentsoft’s Dustin Robinson
By Christa Elliott
What is Hello Talent? A free recruiting tool? The next innovation in proactive recruiting? According to Dustin Robinson, outbound product manager for the software’s parent company, Talentsoft, Hello Talent is both of these and more.
In November, Hello Talent won HRO Today Forum Europe’s 2015 iTalent competition. Held in Amsterdam last year, the iTalent competition highlights the best new HR technology startups.
Companies nominate themselves and HRO Today’s panel of experts choose finalists, who then compete in front of the panel as well as the HR professionals who attended. From this pool, one company is named the winner, based on its pitch and demo.
HRO Today Global sat down with Robinson to find out more about Hello Talent:
Can you briefly explain what Hello Talent is and some of the features that make it stand out from its competitors?
Hello Talent is a web-based platform that facilitates proactive recruiting by allowing recruiters, hiring managers, and other HR professionals to store, aggregate, and share candidate profiles from anywhere they’ve found them online.
