The Talent Finder is a powerful tool to help you find talented people within your
organisation. You can specify the type of person that you are looking for and where
they are needed, the Talent Finder will then search all of your people and automatically
suggest the most appropriate matches based on their talent reviews.
By using a combination of the basic profile and talent review for a person the Talent
Finder can intelligently suggest people that match your criteria.
The career trajectory of a person is considered when looking at their organisation
level. If the person is below the required level but is currently set for a promotion
they will be included; conversely, if the person is at the required level but is
struggling with the responsibility then they aren’t included.
The location option is also intelligent. Specifying that you are looking to fill
a position in New York doesn’t mean that you will only see people currently based
in New York, it will also include anybody who is willing to relocate there.
The results produced by the Talent Finder should be treated as a suggestion only
and any decisions should be backed up with further investigation.
The Importance of Geocoding Your Locations
In order to be able to work out if somebody is willing to relocate to a location
we need to know whereabouts it is in the world. This process is known as geocoding.
