A Complete Guide to Talent Management Software

Talent management software (TMS) is a type of technology that HR professionals use to manage employees in order to gain a competitive advantage. It can refer to standalone applications from a niche vendor that specifically addresses one part of the process, such as a learning management system, or it can refer to a completely integrated software suite.  The main purpose of talent management software is to help companies and organizations manage their current employees, from performance management to benefits.

Some talent management software encompass the hiring phase, and go as far as tracking employees as they prepare to leave a company. However, these phases of the employee lifecycle often have their own, dedicated software tools that stand alone.

Gartner Inc., defines TMS as an integrated set of applications that support an organization’s need to plan, attract, develop, reward, engage and retain talent. Such applications include workforce planning, talent acquisition & onboarding, performance appraisal/assessment, goal management, learning management, competency management, career development, succession management & compensation management.
