Overall Satisfaction with Oracle HCM Cloud

My organization uses Taleo in three different ways. The first is to post jobs to the company's internal and external job boards for online recruiting. Via the online recruiting center they provide, we are able to track applicants, efficiently manage the review, interview and hiring process and draft reports for multiple purposes.

The second function is management of the onboarding process for new hires at the company. Through this module, new employees complete all necessary paperwork to expedite their transition into their new role at the company.

The third function is management of the performance appraisal process for all employees. Through this module, hiring managers and their direct reports can quickly and efficiently complete annual performance appraisals.
  • Job Posting Management.
  • Onboarding.
  • Performance Appraisals.
  • User-friendly navigation and functions for applicants and hiring managers.
  • Customization.
  • The data reporting function can be improved such as allowing users to pull reports directly from the requisition or candidate matrix, versus having to enter the reporting section to pull that information.
  • The total number of employees that can be loaded into the Taleo system needs to be expanded. The current quota limit is a problem for large organizations.
  • The hiring center component should be configured to be compatible with all Web browsers opposed to just Internet Explorer and FireFox.
Prior to Taleo I've used the Authoria (now PeopleFluent) applicant tracking system. Taleo is much easier to use and navigate compared to Authoria and has many more functions that can be easily integrated into the base recruiting product. Taleo is more applicant and hiring manager focussed while Authoria is more focused on the job requisition. The only area where Authoria was superior was in the area of reporting. That system made it much easier to pull reports from multiple places within the application versus Taleo who only allowed you to pull data from the reports section.
Taleo is very well suited for managing the recruiting, onboarding and performance management functions. The system is very user friendly and easy for applicants and hiring managers to navigate. The customizability of the system makes it ideal for organizations that have specific recruiting needs.

To successfully work with the system, companies should have a robust IT department in place and the most current computer and internet software. With those things in place, it will be easy to intergate the Taleo system with the technology of the company.

Using Oracle HCM Cloud

Outside of the great features of the Taleo system, their support team does a great job addressing any issues or service requests my team has submitted. Their sales team is also very flexible and accommodating when it comes to offering pricing that is appropriate to our budget and needs.
  • Fewer technical issues with the online application process.
  • Speed of hiring and onboarding process has increased.
  • Performance evaluations are completed with less difficulty.
