What is Infor Talent Science?

Infor Talent Science is a cloud-based talent management solution that helps companies identify, select, retain and develop talent across the employee life cycle. Using behavioral and performance data from their current workers, human resources departments can create predictive models that will help them hire the right employees for the right positions.

Infor Talent Science uses an online assessment to identify the key attributes for success amongst current employees within an organization, connected specifically to the goals and metrics used. From there, job candidates can take pre-employment assessments to determine their “Behavioral DNA”— a proprietary metric to determine how they stack up on traits relative to the current strongest perfor...

Such a valuable product!

The overall experience has been great. Getting our managers trained may have been the most difficult, in our industry our managers do not focus solely on reading a candidates profile so our main goal was to have their buy in to prove to them it will be beneficial in the long run. After including them in our recalibration process, they got to experience hands on what metrics Talent Science really focuses on. As and administrator of the system it has become of second nature to now exactly how Talent Science works. I enjoy being part of trainings with the Infor Trainer and seeing feedback and questions our users may still have. I am always seeking new ways to make the experience for our users as quick and easy as possible.

Pros

The thing I enjoy the most about Talent Science (as an administrator) is the results we get to see for ourselves in our daily operations. Our hiring managers are using Talent Science ratings or scores to secure potential employees. As we got the opportunity to recalibrate our profiles, we got our hiring managers engaged in knowing their future applicants would be tested against their top/best employees. The ease of using the software has been one of the top things our managers have enjoyed. It is easy to navigate and easy to understand where everything is located. As an administrator, the ease to run reports and such is really great. Overall, I believe Talent Science has only made our company better as we continue to strive to do so!

Cons

At the beginning of our journey with Talent Science, the main thing we were worried about was the time it took candidates to take the assessment and the drop off rate. We believed we were losing candidates because of this. Over time, however, Infor heard our feedback and minimizes the assessment to a smaller completion time. We have now seen more completed assessments than preciously and we hope to continue to see that improve.

Love this software

I have loved my experience and would recommend to anyone.

Pros

The customer service that comes with it is amazing. Everyone is willing to go above and beyond to make sure we get the outcome we need.

Cons

In some areas it can seem a little cumbersome on how you get to what you are looking for. But not enough to classify it as not user friendly.

Reasons for Choosing Infor Talent Science

It seemed like the best fit to take our organization in the direction we needed as far as hiring the right talent.

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.

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.

Uses actual science for prediction, not based on what a consultant thinks.

Would like to have more out-of-the-box dashboards available.
