“Talent management is going through a major transformation with analytics and mobile among the technologies leading the overhaul. Executives can choose from an array of new talent management tools such as micro-videos for employee learning, applications for continuous performance management, and mobile access.

“Talent management tools affect every aspect of a company and give HR a key role in improving business results instead of just overseeing personnel transactions. The area includes human capital management software for talent acquisition, onboarding, employee engagement, training, performance management, compensation, succession management, reporting and analytics.

“Companies are buying new performance management platforms and using people analytics to improve retention and innovation and reduce fraud.

“Despite concerns about security, mobile is also picking up speed in talent management. Mobile can make it easier for employees to use software for core HR records, performance management, recruiting and talent acquisition.”
