LinkedIn launches new Talent Analytics Solution in form of ‘Talent Insights’

LinkedIn is increasingly testing and improving its human resources software as recruitment is priority feature on platform

Improvements to the analytics data of LinkedIn have been launched now that Microsoft has taken over. Talent Insights is a self-serve data graph that utilises LinkedIn data to enable HR professionals to benchmark where talent is being lost and where a new office should be opened.

LinkedIn’s target market is HR professionals to talent and acquisition managers. The data is designed to be quick, actionable and real-time.

While the LinkedIn effort isn’t directly competitive with the likes of Workday, SAP SuccessFactors and Oracle when combined with Microsoft Dynamics could be formidable. Talent Insights includes two reports–one to evaluate talent pool and the other to look at overall company performance when it comes to talent and acquisitions.

The Talent Pool report is used for sourcing strategy for talent such as developers and product managers, workforce planning, attrition rates and location analytics.

LinkedIn’s Talent Insights Company Report is used for competitive intelligence and employer branding for recruiting.

The tool seems to have been met with a very welcome response:

“By using Linkedin Talent Insights, I was able to better communicate to our leadership team why we were facing specific challenges in certain talent markets and justify a budget reallocation to reach our hiring goals.” – Devin Rogozinski, Head of Talent Marketing, Atlassian

“Now we have real-time, exact data on the talent landscape so we can have more productive conversations with hiring managers and can make better decisions. I love it!” – Jennifer Koptaz, Senior Engineering Recruiter, Autodesk
