What is Infor Talent Science?

Great Product and Customer Service

Our company works with several vendors in different capacities and Talent Science is by far one of our favorites. We have built a true partnership with Talent Science over the years and they ensure that they are keeping up to date with our organization's needs and are consistently finding ways to improve our experience and ROI in relation with the tool. Our Customer Success Manager and Behavioral Scientist work closely with us in order to provide outstanding deliverables to improve the talent decisions we make and always communicate information in a way that resonates with our leadership. It truly is exceptional service all around!

Pros

This assessment platform not only helped us save time and help us prioritize high quality candidates during selection, the software provides so many invaluable tools for our managers to make the best hiring decisions and continue to coach and develop their new hires on the job. Additionally, it provides user friendly data on our candidates using validated metrics.

Cons

As of now, we have not come across cons with this product.

Nordstrom

I jumped into the project about halfway through. My experience from an integration standpoint with Workday wasn't smooth and I would have liked to see Talent Science be more proactive through that process. Our customer success manager is great, knowledgeable, and very responsive. We are currently working through validation and I would have liked to see Talent Science map this process out better. There have been a lot of miscommunications in our understanding of what data is needed for validation.

Pros

I like that a candidate only has to take the assessment one time and then Talent Science does that work to score that against various profiles, instead of candidate having to take an assessment for each job they apply to. I like that there are opportunities for development and career pathing with the assessment information. I like that there are probing questions provided to help mitigate any opportunities a candidate may have for the role they are applying to.

Cons

I don't like how long the assessment takes. At 75 questions, it's still lengthy when you think of a retail candidate that might only be working 6-8 weeks with us for the holidays. I'd love if there were games or other aspects that would engage the candidate in a different way but still measure the appropriate behavioral and cognitive skills that we are looking for.

Reasons for Choosing Infor Talent Science

In 2018, our Innovation team was tasked with looking at how our workforce needed to change in order to support the different ways our customers are shopping with us (e.g. digital, brick & mortar, etc.). Part of that work was to understand how we get people in the right job and then how do we get them on the right career journey based on what we know about their behavior and what is important to them individually for a career. Talent Science (formerly People Answers) was a company that came recommended by our CHRO.
