Talent selection

Review your talent supply and map the right people to the right positions.

Whether part of a transformation program or workforce planning activity, make sure the right people are doing the right activities in the right roles.

When planning large-scale workforce changes, success is often determined by matching the right talent to the right positions. 

But mapping thousands of employees to thousands of positions is not easy. When visualizing the talent you have and the talent you need, many variables such as skills, financial planning, location preferences and hybrid working need to be taken into consideration as you make decisions.  

Planners need a platform that simplifies how they see their talent supply and demand and allows them to map the right people to the right positions, so they can confidently manage their future design. 

How Orgvue helps

Orgvue is an organizational design and planning platform, purpose-built to handle large amounts of data and offer advanced data visualization capabilities. It brings your HR and finance data together, so you can visualize your talent supply and link it to unassigned or changed positions for a fast and effective transition process.

Build talent pools for positions before validating your selection

After integrating your data from different sources into the platform, use Orgvue’s drag-and-drop functionality to create talent pools by selecting talent based on role requirements. When you’re ready, confirm candidates and let Orgvue flag errors for your attention; for example, when the same person has been confirmed for two roles.
