3 Good Reasons to Use Tech to Manage Talent

For corporate employers, managing talent can often be a real burden. In addition to legal compliance, getting employees and managers to comply with performance evaluations, self-evaluations, and goal setting, can be as difficult as nailing jelly to a tree.

However, if your company uses the right tech, it might actually be able to get its talent to manage themselves, improve its talent management, and even avoid some litigation.

Make Employees Manage Themselves

Tech enables employees to be part of their own management process. If you use a talent management system that allows employees to set their own goals, engage with the talent management process, and see where they belong within the organization, you might be surprised that the jelly might just stick to the tree after all. Just be sure to make sure it is not too time consuming.

When employees are expected to be actively part of the process and incentivized for engaging with the talent management software, it reduces the burden on HR and management to, so-to-speak, rally the troops to fill out annual forms. But more importantly, management doesn't have to do as much guesswork.

More! You Want More ... Data

Another benefit to using sophisticated talent management software is increased data points. With more data being collected, more can be analyzed, which means more insights. Additionally, if your talent management software integrates with other platforms your company uses, even more can be done, particularly if the management software can connect, rather than just collect, the dots.

Avoid Litigation

By using tech to help manage talent, a company can see which employees are most engaged and get a much better idea of what all the data being collected says. Using the data, a company can create objective qualification criteria for promotions and internal career advancement that can help reduce the risk of employment litigation.
