If you are not managing talent pools then...

Having never managed talent pools outside of ATS before, I found HT was the easiest to implement and use, when compared to other platforms in the marketplace.

Pros

If you have never managed talent pools outside of your ATS then now is the time to give HT a free trial. Simple to set-up, and use, then once you see the value in how too manage your talent pools you will subscribe and get more and more value from the tool.

Cons

Nothing stands out as like least - as with any 'freemium' business model it would be nice to have more of features but that is why they have a very cost beneficial subscription model

Hello Talent - Great tool for building talent pools and managing the recruiting workflow

Hello Talent has evolved from a handy sourcing tool to a full-featured recruiting system which is easy to use and facilitates teamwork through the hiring process. Hello Talent's team approach to the recruitment process means it will be a good fit for many in-house recruiting teams, specialist executive search firms and those agencies who are more interested in managing the workflow and speeding up the recruitment process rather than measuring KPIs and commissions.

Pros

Hello Talent is a great tool for quickly building, sharing and qualifying a talent pool. If you are sourcing talent online - through LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and other social media - the Chrome Extension lets you quickly capture profiles which can be shared with sourcing colleagues, recruiters or hiring managers. Ease of use is a key selling point for Hello Talent and pretty much anyone can get started with the product with little or no training. Anyone who has used a traditional Applicant Tracking System will appreciate the streamlined approach; when you are working at pace to a deadline, you don't want your tools slowing you down. Using Hello Talent sourcers can work with recruiters and hiring managers to build talent pools for qualification and processing through the hiring process. Everyone on the hiring team has visibility over the status of each candidate and the approach to the hiring workflow is far superior to most applicant tracking systems. Hello Talent works well for single recruiters, larger agencies with teams of sourcers working with consultants to build talent pools and in-house recruiting teams. It would also work well for executive search firms.

Cons

In terms of usability and functionality, there's not much to dislike about Hello Talent. However, as with all SaaS products, you are introducing another data processor to the mix, so you'll have to do your own due diligence and ensure that you are compliant with current data protection legislation. Hello Talent does handle GDPR compliance, but this will need some configuration and some housekeeping to maintain. For agencies used to monitoring individual consultant performance, it might be a struggle to get used to the team approach to recruitment that Hello Talent encourages. If your focus is on KPIs and billings, you might struggle to get the kind of management information reporting from Hello Talent that you might see in some other, more traditional, Applicant Tracking Systems. There is a CV parsing option, but this is only available with the Enterprise version. If you are still attracting applicants from traditional job board ads and mining CV libraries, this may be an issue as most applicant tracking systems will include a CV parser in the standard product.

Great for Virtual Teams!

Overall I was very pleased with Hello Talent and recommend them highly.

Pros

What I liked most about Hello Talent: - The interface made collaborating with my virtual team a breeze! Being able to see what user did what activity and the ability to make notes and tag other users really helped. - Straight forward and easy to use. - Attractive interface

Cons

What I liked least about Hello Talent: - The only negatives I found were really more user error - when you have numerous people on a single platform it's bound to happen!
