What is Talent Mapping?

Talent mapping provides talent intelligence and insight into a competitor’s organization. It produces valuable data used for proactive recruiting efforts to build candidate pipelines for current and future roles as well as a great tool to support efforts that result in developing engaged talent communities.

Talent mapping is often delivered in organization chart format, proving a visual of relationships of who is who and who does what within an organization, taking the guesswork out of the equation.  It provides the recruiting team with the entire talent pool ensuring completeness and access to the potential talent universe reducing the chance of missing out on the “right candidate.” Talent mapping is also becoming a go to resource to understand a competitor’s structure after the pandemic.

For recruiting purposes, talent mapping data:

  • Decreases the time-to-hire
  • Reduces cost-per-hire
  • Quickly builds talent pipelines
  • Increases recruiting bandwidth
  • Scalable to meet hiring demands
  • Leverages Talent Pool Data & Analytics

  • Revealing real time data and intelligence
  • Assisting with making informed decisions
