If you’re a human resources pro or recruiter trying to find the right candidate for a job today, you know how competitive things are. It’s a huge challenge to find the handful of people who have the right skills and background, and you can’t rely on them finding you: You need to be proactive, and that means you need to quickly know who’s out there, both external candidates and talent within your own organization.
In a world where opportunity has to find talent, not the other way around, HR has become one of the most vital functions in the enterprise. It also has to work differently – smarter and faster. That’s why Oracle is expanding our partnership with LinkedIn to reimagine this aspect of HR for the future.
With our recent announcement, we’re more powerfully connecting Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud and Taleo Enterprise Edition with LinkedIn to uniquely deliver a unified talent marketplace for customers.
It’s well documented that a role’s best candidates typically come from within the organization. Based on our conversations with customers, talent development and internal mobility are key priorities for many of the world’s leading enterprises.
That’s why we’re excited to be rolling out Talent Profile Import, which allows employees to import key elements of their LinkedIn profiles into their Oracle HCM Cloud Talent Profile. Coupled with expanded integrations with LinkedIn Learning, these will be key enablers for our customers’ development and internal mobility initiatives and will allow their employees to explore and realize their career aspirations.
LinkedIn is a robust talent marketplace that’s fast approaching 600 million profiles. The problem for recruiters is streamlining the process of finding the best candidates from disparate sources.
Our work with LinkedIn means that you’ll get a unified view of the best potential candidates, regardless of source. More specifically, recruiters will be able to search LinkedIn members and see those that best match a job requisition or project directly from within Oracle Recruiting Cloud or Taleo Enterprise Edition.
Even with the rising importance of opportunities needing to find talent, it remains critically important to enhance the experience for external candidates and to help them have the best shot at getting the job. Now, during the apply process, they’ll be able to see who in their LinkedIn network is the best contact to refer them in and initiate a request for referral.
I couldn’t be more excited about our expanded relationship with LinkedIn as we look to deliver on key priorities for our mutual customers.
