Silos: Old & New
In our time of working with organizations of all sizes and within multiple industries, we’ve noticed HR and recruiting technology trend in one of two ways.
- It combines multiple old ‘silos’ and patches them into one ‘seamless’ solution.
- It is new and integrated, but disjointed in strategic value.
In either case, there’s a lack of strategic insight and system unity. There is no foundation that connects hiring and performance strategy to the tools themselves. Sure, technology from applicant tracking systems to performance management tools have useful features that keep employees and managers on the right path. But even the highest caliber systems lack strategic backing.
The What and the Why
The best companies begin with a “why.” They set out to accomplish a mission and vision for their organization, and subsequently invest in building the structure to achieve them. Those paths to achievement are the “what.” For example, think about it in the terms of what we know best in HR and recruiting: people.
Would you spend hours sourcing and recruiting candidates without first knowing what departments or teams actually need to fill roles? Probably not. Instead, knowing why you are hiring an employee is pivotal to making sure you get the right people in the right seats and are able to create an environment to engage them.
This is what a great deal of talent management solutions lack. The tools and features provide the “what” and might even grasp a general idea of the “why,” but they simply don’t capture the unique organization’s core elements.
Enter Talent OS
When it comes to talent management solutions, for so long we have been providing the what and bypassing the why. Our new Talent Operating System (Talent OS) is our answer to that necessary shift and bridge. By definition, an operating system is the software that supports your computer’s basic functions. For ClearCompany, it is the core of our solution that supports your greater talent strategy and ultimately helps you achieve your goals.
Talent OS is the core of our solution that optimizes talent strategy & achieves your company mission.
From goal alignment, manager feedback and task tracking to competency management, employee profiles and compensation history, implementing a Talent Operating System can assist in many places. It ensures data and goals are streamlined through any part of an employee’s lifecycle and eliminates the risk of loss or redundancy. In other words, it bridges thewhy (mission/values, goals, roles and competencies) to the what (locations, teams, structure, alignment, feedback, etc.)
The Core of Companies
An organization is built upon its own set of principles, and we’ve always understood that. In order for the company to achieve goals, they must understand the people who are carrying out tasks day by day, and connect those tasks to the bigger picture. In other words, whether a company is implementing their first applicant tracking system, or has access to an entire ecosystem of Human Resources software, the strategic connection is pivotal. That is why ClearCompany includes the Talent OS for all of our users.
At the end of the day, talent management software isn’t about the system provider or even the end user. It is about the company and team of people who work to achieve company goals. Business is about a mission and enabling the people who are committed to seeing it through. When a company gets that right, you reach true talent success.
