LinkedIn has announced that it is building a new Talent Insights tool to help recruiters better manager and recruit talent, by giving them access to rich data on talent pools and companies.
LinkedIn Talent Insights, planned for launch in 2018, will be a self-service tool that will tap into the platform’s wealth of data from over 11 million job listings and over 500 million members active on the platform. In the announcement for Talent Insights, Eric Owski, Head of Product at LinkedIn’s Talent Insights and Talent Brand explains that the tool is meant to “provide a dynamic view on rapidly changing market conditions.”
LinkedIn Talent Insights will give companies access to two types of reporting: the Talent Pool report, and the Company report.
Talent Pool Report
This Tool will help you “precisely define and understand specific populations of talent you’re interested in,” giving you “a clear picture of what you need to know to recruit and hire for those hard-to-fill roles.”
The Company report allows recruiters to understand their company’s talent so that they can better attract and retain the right people. It also informs them on how to get better at what they do – including how to develop the right employment branding and recruiting strategies.
The report can provide information about,
– How a company’s workforce is distributed by function and geography
– Where a company is gaining talent from and losing talent to
– Which skills at a company are growing the fastest
– What schools a company is hiring talent from
