Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions, today announced that Electrocomponents, the world’s largest distributor of electronics and maintenance products, with 1.5 million customers worldwide has selected Taleo’s Recruiting platform to increase the speed, efficiency and visibility of the company’s recruiting processes worldwide. By using Taleo’s talent intelligence framework and the latest on-demand technology to automate and streamline recruiting processes, the company is now able to develop an in-depth and up-to-the-minute insight into the state of their resourcing activities, right down to a specific business department or geographical region.

Trading as RS Components in the UK, EMEA and Asia Pacific, the FTSE 250-listed company operates in 27 countries and has over 5,600 employees globally. It will deploy the Taleo Platform worldwide this month. Taleo’s global reach in 218 countries was a key factor in Electrocomponent’s choice of solution, with job vacancies posted in French, German, Italian, Chinese and Japanese as well as English. The Taleo solution will also allow Electrocomponents to create a single portal for all careers, increasing usability for both candidates and hiring managers as well as giving the resourcing team greater visibility of key talent metrics.

“We were impressed by the functionality of the Taleo 10 platform,” commented Jon Hull, Resourcing Director for Electrocomponents. “It is very intuitive to use, both for applicants and hiring managers, which is crucial to driving adoption of the technology internally and ensuring that potential employees are not put off halfway through the application process. Taleo will also make a big difference to our reporting metrics. We have quite a geographically diverse workforce so the ability to quickly and easily gain an insight into what is going on in a specific region will be hugely valuable, not just for the resourcing teams but throughout the business.”

“With businesses looking to put the recession behind them and put the emphasis once again on growth, we are seeing a huge demand among businesses for greater talent intelligence so that they can have insight into their work force in order to know their people and grow their business,” commented Adam Brenner, Group Vice President EMEA, Taleo. “Employers are realising that people are their biggest asset, and are investing in tools that provide them with insights to know their people and grow their business”.
