Why Read This Report

The talent acquisition market has changed dramatically. It is no longer just about placing ads on different sites and waiting for the resumes to roll in. Rather, it's ferreting out those passive candidates and convincing them that your company is where they can shine and grow in their profession. Today's recruiters must proactively search, find, and nurture candidates in this tough job market, and they need good tools to do this. In Forrester's 45 criteria evaluation of talent acquisition vendors, we identified the 12 most significant software providers — ADP, Cornerstone OnDemand, Findly, IBM Kenexa, iCIMS, Jobvite, Lumesse, Oracle, PageUp People, PeopleFluent, SuccessFactors, and Technomedia — in the talent acquisition category that provide both applicant tracking system (ATS) and various levels of talent relationship management (TRM) functionality in their recruiting offering. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals work with HR to select the right partner for the company's recruiting needs.
