TrustRadius, the most-trusted customer voice and insights platform for B2B technology, awarded 2019 Top Rated Badges in Talent Management Software. The TrustRadius Top Rated awards are the most trusted in the industry because they are an unbiased reflection of customer sentiment, based solely on user feedback and satisfaction scores. Top Rated awards are the voice of the market and are not influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s company size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer.
In addition to the trScore rating, recency (are the reviews current) and relevancy (does the product have a meaningful share of TrustRadius website traffic) are factors in determining winners. These three criteria make the Top Rated award a true voice of the market.
“The customer voice is now more critical than ever in how buyers choose business software,” said TrustRadius CEO Vinay Bhagat. “Reviews can help buyers understand how successful others have been with these products, as well as understand which tool is right for them, and help them build a successful software stack that suites their business needs. We need to continue expanding our coverage, and our Top Rated program, to give customer-powered vendors the recognition they deserve as well as help technology buyers make important choices more easily.”
What is Talent Management Software?
Talent Management Software is a technology tool used by HR professionals to manage employees within an organization. Closely related to HR software, 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.
The most primary elements of talent management suites form a continuum of activities and processes, revolving around the most important resource in any organization: its people. As talent management encompasses all the talent management suites, integrated HR systems and other all-in-one HR tools that attempt at doing it all, these systems are integrated software solutions built to track and manage the recruitment, professional development and performance of employees and potential candidates. Talent management platforms enable the automation of all the processes within the talent management realm and simplify workflows for HR and the company as a whole.
A talent management solution can also smooth the flow of information across HR, payroll, and benefits administration. This sharing of data can enable your business to better innovate and your employees to better perform. It doesn’t only help HR administrative needs however, talent management is a business strategy, so the software simplifies business processes and allows room for improvement in the top talent in the company.
