Talent Management for SMEs

Just because you’re not a large corporate, implementing Talent Management is still within reach

If you have stretched HR, admin and budget resources, the enterprise-wide talent management systems on the market may simply be too costly – or complex – for you as an SME.

The alternative option for talent management for SMEs is to choose one of the many smaller, standalone systems – but they offer only performance management or only 360 – and not both, or indeed offer anything further. And can they ensure the security and compliance of employee data processing in line with GDPR legislation?

With the right approach, tools and services, bringing together continuous performance reviews, engagement, succession planning and 360 degree feedback, makes good business sense – and now it’s possible for everyone with Talent Cloud® for SMEs.

Talent Cloud® for SMEs is a talent management system for SMEs and not only offers award-winning online software but takes away all the admin hassle. There’s no fixed term contract. No training costs. No software to install. No technological knowledge needed. Just great SME talent management software.

We’ll brand, set-up and host your online site within days. We’ll upload your employee details, manage all the processes and report generation. What’s more, we offer three flexible software configuration Plans for you – Base, Evolution & Advanced – that you design around and add to, based on your budget.

Simply, choose the lowest price plan that has the options you need – and then pay for additional options and features as you need them. You can see exactly what you’ll be spending each month per employee.

You’re just getting started. How far do you want to go?

We take away the hassle, and let you be the hero

With higher demands from the business, fewer HR folk and limited admin support, getting to grips with talent management when you’re an SME can be daunting.

We provide – as standard – configuration and support services to let you focus on making the biggest impact in HR whilst leaving the software set up and running to us.

We will:

  • Prepare your own system, with your own url and branding.
  • Upload your employees’ details via spreadsheet.
  • Set up the important dates so automatic emails are issued as reminders when needed.
  • Support your people with any technical issues – although the system is so intuitive to use, this happens rarely.
  • Generate the reports for you when you need them – or show you how to do this so you can be self-sufficient.
  • Be there for you, every step of the way.
