Talent Manager, for a wide range of talent management challenges
Employees in control
With Talent Manager, employees get a better grip on their own development. Depending on the wishes of the organization, an employee can determine his/her profile, organize feedback and invite his/her manager for feedback. It is also possible to limit these permissions and to place these responsibilities with management and/or HR.
Talent Manager is completely cloud-based and runs at Amazon Web Services (AWS) within the European Union. All servers are redundant, so you are guaranteed optimum availability. Updates are performed daily and our database uses encrypted storage, so you can trust that your data is safe in the cloud.
Talent Manager is fully multilingual: English, Dutch and French languages are standarly available. Your function profiles can also be read multilingual. Do you want the system in a different language? We are happy to facilitate this!
Smart Function Framework ©
We believe that a Talent Management system must not only facilitate the workflow of the appraisal cycle, but it must also display information about available (and absent) talents. That is why we have developed the Smart Function Framework ©. This is an intelligent data model in which we read in your function(profiles) and link it to our psychologically based competence model. This allows Talent Manager to visualize powerful overviews, giving you in-depth insight into the talents and potential of your workforce.
Linked with HR Core system
We link Talent Manager to your core HR or ERP system. In this way the application is always up-to-date and you have automated access to current data. We have existing links with the most used HR systems. In addition, Talent Manager also has an API, which can be used to link between your systems and Talent Manager yourself.
Notification for all users
The system facilitates notifications for all kinds of events. This ensures that events are followed up on and goals achieved. For example: a notification when it is time to follow a training on time management.
Integrated competence language
As an out-of-the-box feature, Talent Manager has a fully validated competence language available for you. This has been developed in collaboration with Tilburg University. The competence model is supported by operational, tactical and strategic behavioral anchors. In addition, it places competencies in Quinn’s model, that provides predictability about the developability of a competence. Talent Manager is also linked to a number of psychological tests from various test suppliers. Besides that, you will find development tips, literary tips and training tips per competence in the system. You can build on this competency model, allowing you to change and add items yourself.
Wondering what opportunities Talent Manager creates for…
For each employee, the manager has the option to provide feedback, set goals or add a note to the employees profile. He also sees the progress of the employees development at a glance. Perhaps the most beautiful functionality for the manager is that he can compare different evaluations side by side and thus has 360 degree feedback. This naturally contains interesting material. With this comparison you can find similarities that can offer interesting discussion material.
The departmental goals can be translated into personal goals, linked to the result areas from a function profile. A distinction can be made between result goals and developmental goals. Both organizational goals and personal goals can be safeguarded in this way.
Managers have a clear dashboard in which they can see the progress of their team at a glance. Progress can be tracked through scores on core values and ambitions. The system also shows you which developments are going well.
The manager can create powerful reports with the data of his team. In this way he can see the distribution and averages of his team, and take into account an optimal team composition when recruiting. He also sees the joint progress on the goals, and use that to decide whether he needs to make adjustments.
Employees can expand their job profile with their own ambitions. Employees have the option to choose ambition competencies. These are competencies that are not in their own job profile, in order to receive feedback on their ambitions. In this way, employees are constantly working on their development, instead of mainly ‘looking back’.
Employees can request 360 degree feedback from colleagues, customers, trainers / coaches and acquaintances. In this way a complete picture, from different perspectives, can be created. This way of giving feedback increases self-knowledge, which is crucial for self-development. Employees can prepare and share 360 degree reports themselves.
The employees set goals. These can be result oriented goals or development goals. We offer options to create goals in consultation with the manager or to let the employee create goals by himself. In any case, the goals are visible to the manager, so that he has a good overview of the ambition and progress of his team.
If employees have set goals, they can plan activities that contribute to achieving these goals. This allows all parties involved to determine whether the activities also contribute successfully to the objective. In addition, the outcome is no longer a surprise. Planning activities also contributes to the creativity of employees. And activities can be widely used within the organization. An activity does not only consist of training, but also mentoring moments or buddies within the organization.
Talent Manager has created development tips for all competencies in its standard competency framework. When employees click on a competency, they immediately receive tips and suggestions. Organizations can manage, adjust and expand on these tips themselves. It is also possible to connect these tips with the internal training guide or available coaches with which the organization works.
