Improve employee engagement and satisfaction

Gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of your people: their needs, personal goals, strengths, and weaknesses with Ciphr HR talent management.

Line managers can link employee objectives to development needs, job requirements and skills, and can identify and anticipate staff training needs. Employees can, as a result, see that their organisation is dedicated to developing their talent by making objectives relevant. For HR teams, this increased employee satisfaction can help you retain employees who want to grow within your organisation and attract new talent.

Succession planning

Develop top talent within your organisation and add value to your employer brand with Ciphr HR talent management.

HR and managers can:

  • Visualise top performers by inputting performance and potential ratings, which feed into a nine-box grid

  • Identify and build talent pools for business-critical roles

  • Auto-populate talent pools with a role’s direct reports, if those people satisfy your minimum nine-box grid criteria (criteria is specified by you)

  • Add employees from elsewhere in the organisation to specific talent pools

  • Allocate a person’s readiness for a new role

Strategic HR

The robust review and objective-setting processes within Ciphr HR’s talent management functionality can help you develop employees’ potential in line with strategic organisational goals – you can create as many organisational goals as you need, and link employee objectives to these company-wide goals.

Track and report on performance

Create dashboards to easily analyse data about different employee groups, such as direct reports, teams, and all employees. You can choose to report on the key metrics that matter most, – kudos points, development needs, or skills.

By analysing employee data, you can track their performance against objectives and key milestones and spot areas of development for employees. You can then take relevant action to help upskill employees who may be struggling.

    Talent management software FAQs

    Talent management software helps organisations measure and record information about employee performance and development. It helps employers understand their people better and identify and develop their potential more effectively. The result is informed succession planning, a better chance of identifying valued employees who are about to leave, and great support for HR teams wanting to build a high-performance workplace.

    Talent management software tracks progress against objectives, identifying and anticipating people’s training needs. It automates previously complex and time-consuming workflows to serve people better. And it helps you make intelligent decisions about people. In an ideal world it’ll be part of your central HR system and integrate with a suitable learning management system to deliver a holistic approach to people management.

    A talent management platform improves the strategic role of HR teams, so ultimately improves employee performance. It’ll help you automate complex workflows, better understand your people, develop their potential, and create a culture where learning is valued, appreciated, and enjoyed.

    Talent management and HR are different. Talent management is part of HR, and is focused on developing and training employees to reach their full potential, in pursuit of the organisation's overall goals.

    Talent management helps you make the most of your existing employees, while recruitment involves finding the best people to hire in the first place. The two elements are closely related but different.

    Talent management software helps organisations track individuals' progress against clear objectives. It automates workflows so people get their appraisals and reviews on schedule, and helps you make evidence-based decisions about individuals' careers.

    Talent management is a broad term describing how HR managers recruit, retain, develop, and reward employees. Performance management involves measuring employee performance based on data, analysis, and feedback.

    The cost depends on the talent management software you choose, the size of your organisation, and what you want the software to achieve.

    In a world where it’s a challenge to find the best people and just as challenging to hang onto them, talent management software helps organisations inspire, retain, develop and reward valued employees.
