ENGAGE Talent Named in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Human Capital Management Technology, 2019 report

Total Talent Intelligence™ Platform Company Cited in the AI in Talent Acquisition Technology Category

CHARLESTON, S.C. – August 30, 2019 – ENGAGE Talent, an AI software company that offers the Total Talent Intelligence™ platform to help companies improve talent acquisition, engagement and retention and predict company and market performance, today announced that it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Human Capital Management Technology, 2019 report. ENGAGE Talent was named in the AI (Artificial Intelligence) in Talent Acquisition technology category.

Gartner defines AI in Talent Acquisition as follows: “Artificial intelligence (AI) in talent acquisition (TA) increases automation of the recruitment process and provides decision-making support to candidates, hiring managers and TA professionals for process steps such as talent sourcing, screening, marketing, interview scheduling and initial onboarding. A variety of ‘point’ solutions are available: chatbots, virtual assistants and AI-enabled sourcers. Increasingly, however, solutions are end-to-end offerings.” Gartner adds, “Inquiries from Gartner clients indicate steady demand from organizations to leverage AI capability across front-end talent processes, such as sourcing, job targeting and distribution, and predictive analytics, to improve time-to-hire and quality-of-hire metrics.”

The report says, “Other adoption factors include the use of technology to enhance the skill set of recruiters and expand the reach of undersized teams in terms of generating talent pools and engaging with candidates.” Gartner also notes that, “Automated decision making is most applicable to less complex, highly transactional talent audiences (associated with low-skilled ‘gig’ assignments, medium-skilled temporary assignments, and high-volume repeatable searches).”

“As the talent market continues to tighten, we see that companies of all sizes have to innovate to be competitive. Strong demand from our customers validates that leveraging AI and predictive analytics for talent acquisition is a critical part of a company’s differentiation strategy,” said ENGAGE Talent Founder and CEO Joseph Hanna. “We believe Gartner recognizing AI in Talent Acquisition as its own category in the report further supports our approach and the profound impact talent has on business performance.”
