SAN JOSE, Calif., March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brightmatter™, a division of DHI Group, Inc. (NYSE: DHX), today unveiled getTalent, the most advanced strategic talent sourcing management platform that helps HR teams proactively build talent pipelines, engage candidate leads and hire qualified candidates faster.
Most HR teams function like firefighters, scrambling to fill current vacancies with qualified candidates. But, it's becoming much harder to identify and attract qualified talent, particularly for in-demand skillsets. A recent study by Aberdeen Group found that 75 percent of the fully employed workforce consider themselves "passive" candidates—employed, but open to employers' hiring messages. When HR teams struggle to get these candidates active, interested and engaged, the resulting unfilled jobs and increased time-to-hire represent a major opportunity cost to businesses. According to the DHI Hiring Indicators, DHI Group's proprietary set of indices measuring average job vacancy duration and recruiting intensity, the average time-to-fill open positions in the U.S. reached record highs in 2015.
"Most HR executives are challenged by a lack of clear insight into how quickly they can fill open positions, and little-to-no visibility into what their candidate pipelines look like," said Shravan Goli, president of Brightmatter. "Their teams are scrambling to react to business pressure to fill vacancies rather than proactively cultivating candidate leads and building an engaged talent pool. getTalent addresses those problems by ensuring HR teams have deep insights into their talent pipelines and can nurture candidate leads effectively to convert prospects into applicants and interviews."
A Proven Approach to Lead Sourcing based on Marketing Methodology
B2B Marketing teams rely on CRM and marketing automation platforms for customer lead aggregation, scoring and nurturing, as well as measuring funnel performance. getTalent takes a page from the B2B marketing playbook, applying these same tested techniques to talent lead cultivation and management. The end result enables employers to move the most qualified candidates through the recruitment funnel faster.
getTalent helps HR teams build robust candidate lead pipelines and boost productivity through a toolset that integrates into the sourcing workflow. getTalent:
- Pulls in resume profile data from any type of file, feed, site or source
- Integrates with applicant tracking systems
- Adds new candidate leads while sourcing via a Chrome browser extension and Outlook plug-in
- Scans and parses resumes via an iOS app designed for recruiting events
- Allows candidates to upload their own profile data to join the employers' talent pool
An industry first, getTalent's exclusive FreshUp™ process leverages DHI's Open Web product, which scours over 150 publicly available online data sources, to update candidate leads with the most current and accurate data. FreshUp also updates old candidate leads, making them new and actionable again.
Better Organization & Engagement for Better Hiring Results
getTalent creates a single repository of all candidate leads, which HR teams can then organize into distinct talent pools and targeted talent pipelines. Users can create unlimited talent pipelines for specific open job requirements or hiring initiatives. Users can create pipelines for executive searches, specific positions in various locales and diversity or veterans' hiring programs, for example. Keeping talent pools of "warm candidates" is critical to nurturing talent over time, and ensuring less cold calls to prospects. Instead of relying exclusively on email, HR teams can use getTalent's built-in multi-channel engagement options to deliver the right messages to the right candidates over the most effective channel. In addition to email, HR teams with recruitment marketers can engage candidate leads using built-in integrations with Eventbrite and Meetup, with SMS text, OS push notifications, and social media integrations coming soon.
"We know email isn't always the best choice to successfully connect with candidates, especially for millennials, who will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025," said Evan Lesser, general manager of getTalent. "With getTalent, you can use the best engagement channel to connect with the right candidate leads. The end result is getting far greater visibility into which marketing methods work best in order to fine-tune your tactics."
Measure Performance for Continuous Improvement
In addition to clearly understanding pipeline health, growth, and makeup, HR leaders gain insight into their team's performance, seeing which recruiters and sourcers are contributing the most candidates. getTalent tracks every candidate interaction across all channels, including email, phone and social media. Using the aggregated data, candidate leads are scored, just like marketing leads, giving hiring teams a dashboard view of each candidate's total engagement level with that company's brand.
getTalent is the most advanced sourcing management solution that helps HR teams build and manage a strategic, future-ready talent pipeline, and engage and hire the right candidates faster. getTalent is a product of Brightmatter, a division of DHI Group, Inc.
