Not Your Father's Taleo

Today’s Taleo is not your father’s Taleo. It is innovative, intuitive, easy to use on any device, and customers genuinely enjoy using it. Yes, I’m talking about Taleo. It’s still by far the world’s most popular talent acquisition platform* and it is better than ever.

From the day Taleo was purchased by Oracle in 2012, we’ve invested heavily in innovation and expansion every single quarter and customers have taken notice. They’re not just choosing it for recruiting but using key embedded features like onboarding and sourcing as well, which most recruitment software offers only through separate solutions or third-party products.

From sourcing to candidate experience to recruiter productivity, the user experience has been vastly improved. Here are just a few innovations built into the Taleo Enterprise Edition:

  • A brand new modern and highly engaging interface for hiring managers and recruiters
  • Mobile-first design for a consistent experience across devices for your candidates AND your teams
  • Unlimited custom site pages to target the right candidate pools, no matter where they are or what they’re interested in
  • Google Jobs integration to make your jobs easier to be found
  • The Apply with LinkedIn 2.0 offering so your candidates can apply in just a few clicks
  • Deep analytics and reporting to optimize your recruiting process by knowing: where your top candidates are coming from, how strong your talent pipeline is, and how much it costs to hire new people

Our roadmap includes reimagining the candidate and recruiter experience with advancements like:

  • Digital assistants to field candidate questions and help recruiters manage workflows
  • Adaptive Intelligence to source better candidates and highlight best fit opportunities
  • Industry-first integrations with LinkedIn to drive recruiter productivity and effectiveness


It’s important not to just take our word for the impact these innovations have made. In 2018, Potential Park’s ranking of the companies with the best digital Talent Communication (Candidate Experience) for the USA and globally included several Taleo customers in the top 10 of each category. These are big names like UnitedHealth Group, GEICO, Accenture, Deloitte, AccorHotels and Engie.  That’s a candidate experience that’s creating results.

The fact is, if you haven’t looked at Taleo in a while, you’re missing out. Missing out on the intuitive experience your candidates are looking for, the analytics and reporting your recruiting teams need, and the onboarding capabilities your new hires deserve.

This isn’t your father’s Taleo, it’s yours and it gets better every day.
