From the Inside Flap:

Talent builds world-class products and services, nurtures customerrelationships, invents new processes and improves existing ones.Talent inspires, coaches, and leads. Talent builds anorganization’s reputation, and over time companies of allstripes will or won’t become valuable because of theirtalent. To survive in the knowledge economy over the long term,organizations must become focused on managing talent as their mostcritical resource, and must turn to modern human resourcestechnologies in order to manage their workforce as carefully asthey would any physical asset.

Talent Management Systems explains the transformationWeb-based technologies have brought to workforce acquisition andmanagement. It examines proven and leading-edge best practices thatcan improve your organization’s ability to expertly attract,recruit, motivate, develop, and retain staff. And it reveals thetactics and strategies organizations can use to remain competitivein this arena, including:

  • Online recruiting
  • Building a career site on the corporate Intranet
  • Specialized recruitment sites
  • Automated screening, sorting, and ranking of candidates
  • Building skill libraries and profiling competencies
  • Online assessment and testing
  • Selecting the right Talent Management System for the job, andchoosing a TMS vendor
  • Outsourcing
  • Legal, ethical and fairness concerns in e-recruitment

No industry has made better use of Web technology than HumanResources, particularly in recruitment. Some of theInternet’s best known and most successful brands (forexample, Monster, CareerBuilder, and HotJobs) are career sites usedby millions of jobseekers and hundreds of thousands of employers.Most organizations also understand the advantages of operating acorporate career site and in building their employment brand.

However, despite this early and rapid adoption of technology byhuman resource professionals, most are just scratching the surfaceof what technology is available and how it can be used to give anorganization competitive advantage. By mastering a talentmanagement system, organizations can:

  • Reduce their average time to hire
  • Become more competitive employers
  • Avoid the lost productivity and momentum that arises when aposition lies vacant
  • Build rapport, interest, and trust with individuals from thetime they apply, throughout the hiring process, during theiremployment, and even after they leave the organization
  • Manage all aspects of the "total" workforce—externalcandidates; salaried, hourly, and temporary employees; and evenindependent contractors
