Technology and Talent Management

The technology industry centered on talent management software and tools is growing by leaps and bounds.

It’s a multi-billion dollar industry, and there’s good reason for that.

Employers are facing what they perceive as a skills shortage or gap and the technology becoming increasingly available is helping them tackle the problem head-on.

Beyond a Database

In the past, talent management technology and software was essentially a way for human resources departments to keep track of employees in the most basic ways possible. It was a collection of data that could be used for little more than keeping up with employees’ names, positions and salaries.

That, however, has all changed.

Companies like Oracle have turned talent management technology on its head, and have made it a crucial component of today’s workforce development and the economy as a whole.

The Achievements of Talent Technology

So why is talent management-based technology so important to today’s businesses?

It’s the key to not just attracting top talent, but retaining that talent.

Today’s technology gives business leaders the opportunity to obtain an in-depth look at the comprehensive processes driving talent management.

Corporate leaders have the ability to manage the entire lifecycle of an employee’s career, identify top talent and potential leaders, and also recognize gaps.

There are opportunities to delve into the driving forces behind a workforce and gain insight into what’s motivating them and what’s going to keep them.

Technology in the talent management realm also opens the door for long-term planning and the creation of enduring goals that hasn’t been seen before. There is the opportunity to track and manage talent and ensure you’re aligning yourself with your overall goals every step of the way.

Human resources and talent management are no longer about the bare bones data—developments in technology are laying the groundwork for talent management to be the driving force behind the world’s top companies.
