What is Talent Intelligence?

Talent Intelligence is the ability to combine and analyse sources of information about the external talent landscape to support business decisions.

Combined with the internal view offered by HR Analytics, it creates a 360 degree view for more informed, strategic talent teams.

Talent Intelligence isn't exclusively related to talent acquisition, and can provide insight into competitor activity as well as being used to inform real estate decisions and merger and acquisition activity.

Why Talent Intelligence and why now?

Businesses love data and external talent data has never been more readily available.

As Internal talent groups evolve, they can use Talent Intelligence to make actionable, evidence-based decisions and take on a bigger strategic role.
