Peoplefluent Unveils TalentUnity, a New Workforce Acquisition Solution Giving Companies Unparalleled Access to Talent Pools to Support Strategic Hiring Decisions
Peoplefluent TalentUnity Combines Recruiting and Contingent Sourcing Workflows to Enable Holistic Talent Acquisition
WALTHAM, Mass. – May 30, 2013 – Peoplefluent®, a leading social human capital management technology company, today announced Peoplefluent TalentUnity® , an enhanced version of its recruiting and contingent workforce management solutions. The unified solution combines common recruitment and contingent sourcing workflows into a single interface, giving business managers, HR professionals, and internal and external recruiters unparalleled access to a total workforce talent pool to support strategic, cost-effective decisions.
Companies across the globe are under pressure to compete for the best talent to fill existing and future skill gaps. To do so, companies must have a holistic view of all active workforce talent pools available in order to fill positions that require specific, hard-to-find skill sets. Companies that have seamless access to prequalified prospects for temporary, part-time and full-time roles can make faster, smarter hiring decisions and gain a significant advantage in the battle for talent, which has significantly heightened over the past year. Peoplefluent TalentUnity empowers business managers, HR professionals and recruiters to identify, attract and onboard the best candidates, whether they join the team as hourly, salaried or contract.
Peoplefluent TalentUnity also includes common business intelligence and analytics, combining data from recruiting and contingent workforce management systems. This creates a single source for all reporting needs delivering total workforce visibility for HR, Procurement and Executive leadership, and providing insight to make key strategic decisions.
Peoplefluent TalentUnity changes the way companies acquire talent. It is the only solution to enable hiring decision managers to look across recruiting and contingent workforce solutions, which is particularly important in the following scenarios:
- Considering both contractor and full-time hire talent options: As workforce demands shift and more prospective employees prefer flexible employment, leveraging talent with specific skill sets on a contract basis could be strategic to a business’s bottom line as well as employee satisfaction. Peoplefluent TalentUnity enables companies to leverage vendor networks or talent pools to identify the best source of hire for a specific opening.
- Transitioning a contractor to full-time employee: At the conclusion of a contractor engagement, companies may have a business need to hire the contractor full time. Peoplefluent TalentUnity simplifies this transition by sharing contingent management information with the recruiting portal, saving HR professionals time and resources spent acquiring a new full-time hire and also streamlining the onboarding process.
- Direct Sourcing: By utilizing the capabilities provided by the recruiting solution, companies can capitalize on their corporate brand to attract talent for contingent opportunities. Peoplefluent TalentUnity lets companies leverage their career sites to post contingent opportunities which can lead to additional cost savings.
“Our clients, many companies within the Fortune 100, look to Peoplefluent for solutions that will enable their HR and procurement teams to make strategic talent acquisition decisions, better utilize human capital assets and unlock workers’ potential,” said Jim Bowley, vice president, product management, Peoplefluent. “Our investment to tightly integrate recruiting and vendor management processes and bring Peoplefluent TalentUnity to market was fueled by industry demand and customer feedback, which confirmed companies are looking for a solution that considers the total workforce, including services procurement and contingent labor management along with employee recruitment.”
