Every employer knows that their organisation is only as good as the people they have working for them. Similarly, no HR professional needs to be reminded of the hard work that goes into finding, attracting, employing and retaining people with the skills and aptitude to really carry an organisation forward.
The truth is, identifying and hiring the kind of talent that can make a transformational difference to how you operate has never been an exact science – until now, that is. Harnessing the cutting edge intelligence capabilities of Microsoft’s leading business management platform, Dynamics 365 for Talent maximises the value of your HR activities and puts people at the heart of your organisation.
Integrating the core strands of talent attraction, onboarding and human capital management (HCM) in one cohesive, accessible platform, Dynamics 365 for Talent is one of the few truly end-to-end digital HR solutions available on the market. Built on cloud technology, it is supremely flexible, scalable and accessible, helping organisations of all shapes and sizes to drive efficiency and control costs in their talent management processes.
What is Dynamics 365 for Talent?
Dynamics 365 for Talent is part of the Dynamics 365 business management suite, a set of integrated applications that cover the full range of operations from enterprise resource planning (ERP) to customer relationship management (CRM).
This means that, on the one hand, Dynamics 365 for Talent is a standalone HR application available as a subscription service – no purchasing expensive product licenses, no complicated staging software on premises. It can be used on its own to manage all your recruitment and HCM needs.
On the other hand, Dynamics 365 for Talent can be deployed as part of something much bigger. The Dynamics 365 suite is all about choice and flexibility – choose one, choose some, choose all. The benefit of running multiple Dynamics 365 applications, or even using the whole lot for a complete business management solution, is the integration of data across operations to provide a more seamless experience for customers and employees alike, as well as gaining comprehensive, in-depth business intelligence (BI).
What can Dynamics 365 for Talent do?
Dynamics 365 for Talent is about more than day-to-day HR administration, more than attracting the best people to your organisation. It is about optimising and integrating people and talent management to unlock potential and maximise impact.
By streamlining the core strands that contribute to recruitment and HR, Dynamics 365 for Talent allows employers to take a more strategic view of how to make the best of the people at their disposal. It does this by integrating data to deliver clear, actionable insights and by automating routine administration to free up time to focus on strategy.
The application functions in three core areas, all of which complement one another to deliver results greater than the combined sum of their parts.
From identifying the right candidates to turning the recruitment process into a major sell for your company, Dynamics 365 for Talent empowers organisations to get the right people, fast. Integration with LinkedIn provides sophisticated talent-spotting capabilities, while intelligence-led candidate insight drives smarter decision-making. Hiring teams get a full suite of tools to support interviewing and application assessments, while the software also allows you to build online candidate portals so they remain informed and involved throughout the engagement-interview-interact process.
Every employer wants to get new recruits up to speed and performing at their best as quickly as possible. After the cost of finding and hiring people itself, that initial onboarding phase of low productivity and high training input adds considerably to the overall cost of recruitment. Dynamics 365 for Talent offers fully customisable onboarding checklists which can be used to share priorities with new recruits and make achievement a collaborative process. Training and information resources are similarly made available in convenient online locations and organisations can hone onboarding best practice by saving and updating programmes from one candidate to the next.
Keeping hold of good employees is much more cost effective than having to recruit in a regular basis. And what makes great employees even better, is additional training and appropriate promotions. Once you have identified and attracted the best talent, it is critical to be able to retain them give them the development they need, which is why Dynamics 365 for Talent integrates hiring and HCM so closely. The application enables intelligence-led performance management and CPD, with a range of tools for setting and monitoring targets. But rather than reducing appraisals to a tick-list administrative exercise, Dynamics 365 for Talent focuses on collaboration and personal development, with an emphasis on ongoing feedback and real-time visibility on performance metrics for both employees and managers. This intelligent piece of software can even take the data it has on your team and suggest which of your people is best suited to be promoted into your open positions.
Dynamics 365 for Talent helps employers and HR professionals turn recruitment and HCM into value-added exercises. By providing an integrated end-to-end solution with clear intelligence-led insights at every point from candidate identification to career path progression, this application supports a strategic approach that helps organisations maximise impact while minimising cost and churn.
