UK recruitment and retention challenges met with launch of enhanced HCM offering from Talentia Software

Recruitment and Retention

Talentia Software, the award-winning supplier of business management solutions, is set to officially launch the evolution of its Human Capital Management (HCM) Recruitment offering, designed to equip organisations of all sizes with the ability to address a changing recruitment landscape and evolving candidate expectations.

With the UK Commission for Employment and Skills* finding that total UK job vacancies rose by 45% between 2009 and 2014, Talentia HCM meets the recruitment and retention challenges that many organisations now face as a single integrated application for the whole employee lifecycle.

The new Talentia HCM Recruitment module will be officially launched to an audience of 2,000 senior HR professionals at the CIPD HR Software Show 2015; an event that will also see Julie Windsor deliver an expert presentation on the need to future-proof HR software investment to meet anticipated corporate challenges.

“Identifying the right talent at the right time is essential for businesses of all sizes, as is the need to ensure that the recruitment outcome is fair for every applicant, regardless of whether or not they have been selected,” states Julie Windsor, Managing Director at Talentia Software UK. “Ensuring the onboarding process is professional, clear, simple and fast can be a sizeable obstacle to overcome without a comprehensive talent management suite by your side.”

Talentia HCM features dedicated analytics dashboards that clearly display talent, workforce, training and recruitment KPI information, tailored to business requirements. The solution also provides the capability for HR or recruiting managers to swiftly access a complete history of received CVs over the last three years, with a breakdown by month; an overview of the requested headcount by unit, reason and job family; and total job vacancy costs by year.

“Recruitment and talent management must be carefully considered from both an internal and external perspective,” adds Julie Windsor. “Central to the success of this is access to advanced analytics and the ability to quickly and visually drill down into performance against KPIs at all points within a business. Companies must put steps in place to retain key talent and high performers, as well as to understand the true cost of losing staff, including the impact on productivity.”

Closely integrated with professional social networking sites and linking directly to job boards for the posting of multiple vacancies, Talentia HCM Recruitment has been developed to save HR teams significant amounts of time. The enhanced offering also heralds a move away from manually reviewing CVs, by allowing criteria to be set and candidates to be filtered based on key skills and competencies. From a talent acquisition perspective, managers at different levels within the organisation can provide feedback to HR in terms of the workforce needs of their teams, with Talentia HCM Recruitment providing one workflow to support managers in their request for new people.

“Organisations must be agile and react rapidly to changes in the corporate environment in order to remain competitive, and a central facet of this is the successful onboarding of new talent,” states Fabio Cardilli, European Product Leader at Talentia Software. “We believe organisations will benefit from a tool that is truly integrated within a wider talent management solution, capable of not only boosting the employer branding to attract outside talent but also able to consolidate feedback from other HR processes, including performance reviews and career plans, to access the right external and internal talent at the correct time.”

Talentia’s enhanced HCM Recruitment offering is a comprehensive solution for HR and talent management. For more information about the business software solutions available from Talentia, visit
