Until pretty recently, talent matching was a cumbersome process. HR and Internal Recruiting teams had to keep track of the skills within their workforce and attempt to align talent with open opportunities manually. This presented several major challenges, especially for larger enterprises. It’s safe to say that when your headcount reaches the thousands, it becomes impossible to keep track of every employee’s evolving set of skills and pinpoint which of the hundreds of available projects and roles might be the best fit for them.
As a result, manual talent matching often takes weeks to complete. And since employees keep learning and growing, the process inevitably becomes obsolete, sometimes even before it’s finished. Fortunately, AI-driven platforms are here to change all of that. When leaders have access to a two-sided talent marketplace, it suddenly becomes very easy to match people to opportunities in mere seconds. And unlike manual alternatives, the matches that your platform generates will continue to evolve as your people advance their careers and expand their skill sets.
Given all of these major advantages, there’s no doubt that the future of internal talent matching lies in leveraging AI-powered marketplaces to align people to projects in real-time.
