LinkedIn Talent Hub

I think Talent Hub could be well suited for companies that do not have any structure around their hiring and no internal recruiters to support them. The system will allow the manager to post their job and leave it alone but if you're a company with structure and internal teams to support recruiting efforts, there are better ATS platforms out there.

Sage People

Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Pros

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • LinkedIn Talent provides customized templates that can be used to quickly reach out to candidates via LinkedIn InMail.
  • The pipeline feature allows recruiters and/or human resource directors to build, track, and manage candidates. It lets you organize candidates into folders and create lists with reminders.
  • You can share your activities, projects, searches, candidate profiles, and applicant notes with other people throughout the company.

Sage People

  • Sage is highly flexible and configurable, allowing us to manage the variety of geographies and functional units in one platform.
  • Sage is highly customer focused, with great CSM support.
  • Sage People will be able to integrate with other Sage pillars such as Accounting and Payroll.

Cons

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • InMails. The con of sending InMails is that many times you don’t get a response back. Linkedin should have a feature where a recruiter can know if their InMails was even viewed. Better mechanisms need to be put in my place for the InMails feature.
  • Cost. LinkedIn recruiter is not cheap. I wish the cost could be a bit lower especially if there are multiple users.
  • Connectifier is not helpful for global candidates. Many of the candidates that I reach out to are international. Unfortunately, Connectifier isn’t helpful in obtaining email addresses for these international candidates.

Sage People

  • We found out-of-the-box configuration and fields for employees and salary to be lacking and had to do extensive customization especially for salary.
  • Basic salary functionality like uniform pay grades and automatic calculations based on FTE are lacking. This makes simple things like COLA adjustments to be a chore.
  • It is very easy to customize, which is a "Pro", but also means that you might have to do quite a bit of customization to get it to do what you'd like.
  • The employee Self-serve ("WX") interface can be a bit slow at times.

I'm giving this a 6 only because in my 1 year at my current position we have had 3 different reps. The first was unresponsive and passive when attempting to help us. When she came out to do a demo on a new feature launch it was scattered and all over the place. The person we have now is great and is super helpful when ever we need him.

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Talent Hub

All of these platforms have their pros and cons - none are perfect! I like the connectivity of LinkedIn Talent, and the exposure it brings. It is also fairly easy to use. However, we have chosen to utilize Workable more, as it has better integration options, a larger job board pool and more user friendly for our employees. Additionally, we do not have sales rep contacting us frequently, like we do with LinkedIn

Sage People

Sage was a better fit for us for two reasons. One is that SuccessFactors seemed geared toward larger, more structured companies rather than to mid-size companies. The second reason is that from an Implementation standpoint, Sage has their own team while SuccessFactors uses third-party vendors. We felt that Sage would be more invested with us and a better partner in our success.

Return on Investment

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • LinkedIn Talent has allowed us to truly build up our candidate database/pipeline.
  • As we have started to explore job postings as well, we have found that it has been effective in targeting the audiences that are most relevant to the roles that we are working on.
  • Ability to now filter through active candidate preferences.

Sage People

  • Sage People has helped us to standardize our HR processes across a complex multinational environment. Overall, this has saved us time and resources
  • Licensing can be expensive especially for HR administrator licenses, and non-profit pricing isn't as good as we would hope. However, in the long run, costs are saved because there is no need for internal infrastructures such as servers or client applications
  • Integration with multiple payroll providers saves time and money and reduces the chance for errors.
