To enable a more strategic approach to talent acquisition across its global organization, Bombardier has upgraded to the latest version of Oracle Talent Management Cloud, a component of Oracle HCM Cloud, to propel its recruiting capabilities.
With large, time-sensitive orders for its transportation solutions, fast talent acquisition is critical to the company’s success, particularly for in-demand positions like engineers and project managers.
