Talent acquisition vs talent management—how can I tell the difference?

Talent acquisition refers to the overall process of recruiting. From identifying to onboarding candidates, talent acquisition is a complex process that, to be performed effectively, requires powerful technology.

Talent management refers to the processes that occur after a candidate has been hired. These include, performance management, succession planning, learning and development, compensation, benefits, and other strategic areas of HR.

Talent Acquisition—the right technology

As mentioned, to acquire talent which accurately fits a “requisition” a.k.a. “job description,” excellent top-notch technology is a must. To select such technology, some research is needed. User reviews are a notably powerful resource in finding the right talent acquisition technology. To find yourself at the head of the pack, it’s important that you make sure that your technology is as easy-to-use and feature-rich as possible. If not, you’re sacrificing tremendous business streamlining potential.

When you acquire talent, you need to find the right individuals—and do it quickly. Not least because, often, your competition will have the ability to do so. And so you need technology that, when it comes to talent acquisition, pushes boundaries and innovates.

Talent Management—process and workflow

Managing talent is more than just calls and emails. It also includes process and workflow. What does that mean?

Your team should have a standardized process for managing talent. Otherwise, you lose “man-hours.” You lose time on poor management—on reinventing the wheel with each new hire. You waste effort. You get mired in paperwork and gradually lose any gains you’ve made.

Bottom line: you need standard operating procedures for talent management. Especially when it comes to technology! Indeed, if you want to standardize how you manage talent, having a strong framework of technology is beyond important. It’s essential.
