What is the talent lifecycle?


Pull talent in through job boards and follow up right away to ensure they don't slip through the cracks.


Engage the talent already in your database with the right message, at the right time, for the right opportunities.


Deliver a seamless and positive experience in the lead up to the first day and throughout the first weeks on the job.


Proactively nurture throughout their assignment so you can easily engage them for their next role, increasing the rate of redeployment.
