One of the most crucial parts of any recruitment campaign is the candidate interview, and like all meetings it usually involves the taking of notes and subsequent incorporation of that feedback into the system for relevant stakeholders to review.
The Taleo Evaluation Management feature not only makes this process seamless, it allows for the total management and administration of feedback questionnaires. It should be noted that although the context of this article is ‘Interview’ this is by no means that only reason for using this feature. Any feedback, for any purpose, that needs to be recorded in the system can utilise this service.
After a minimal amount of back end configuration (including Feedback Expiration Period and Message Templates), the next step is to create series of questionnaires in a library that can be pushed to the relevant people (e.g. Interviewers and Assessors) at the appropriate time. This is a 3 stage process:
In addition, you need to update the User Type Permissions in order to establish which users are classified as Evaluators and can therefore be sent the questionnaire.
Linking to Requisitions
Once the setup is complete it is time to start using the feature. The first step in this journey is to ensure that the right Questionnaires and Evaluators are associated with the appropriate Requisitions. This is completed at the time of creating the requisition in the system.
The Feedback Request
So, the candidate finally reaches the relevant stage of the hiring process (e.g. Interview) that requires the gathering of feedback. It is now a simple case of sending the right questionnaire to the right evaluators…
...then just sit back, relax and wait for the results to come flooding in.
If you'd like to learn more about this and other features I suggest you attend the 1-day course: Taleo (TEE): Advanced Recruiting Configuration (REC-SA201). It is available in both a Classroom training format and a Live Virtual Class training format.
