What Is Talent Management?

Competition to attract and retain talent in competitive markets is intense and increasing.

In a recent survey of over 3,300 HR professionals, 68% reported difficulty recruiting qualified candidates; 39% reported that offering more flexible work arrangements is their most effective recruiting strategy; and 34% reported that expanding the geographic search region is part of their strategy.1

HR leaders need talent management solutions that provide support for the changing needs of the digital workplace, including managing their globally mobile workforce, getting deeper insights into the hiring and recruiting process, and engaging and motivating employees throughout their career.
