New Tailored Group DNA Feature Adds Personalization to Soft Skills Analysis

Introducing Tailored Group DNA

Talentoday is excited to announce the arrival of the newest feature of Talentoday Manager — Tailored Group DNA! In the last year, our team introduced Talentoday Managers to Group DNA. The idea was simple: Users needed to be able to make smarter HR decisions and maximize synergies within teams by leveraging MyPrint® soft skills data at scale.

Group DNA achieved this with two core purposes in mind: team profiling and talent matching.

  • Team Profiling: Group DNA allows users to uncover the soft skills and traits that shape any distinct work group of three or more people. The result is a visual representation of what makes a group effective, and where there are skills gaps to fill. [Example Image]
  • Talent Matching: Group DNA improves talent matching by determining the synergies within a job function by taking a sampling of members and allowing Managers to identify the predominant skills that contribute to that groups’ success. Based on that knowledge, candidates can be matched to the role against the Group DNA.

Tailored Group DNA takes this concept one step further by adding personalization options for our users. While Group DNA is a purely data-driven tool which compiles all dominant traits from a sample group of members’ MyPrint data, Tailored Group DNA allows managers to zero-in on the precise traits they may need to focus on for a particular hiring or management situation.

With Tailored Group DNA, you can now find solutions to the following questions:

  • How do I leverage Talentoday’s matching algorithm without an ideal sample group to work off of?
  • How can I integrate the soft skills that reflect my organization’s values into our selection process?
  • How do I leverage my team’s MyPrint insights to create diversity of thought?

It’s time to put a human touch on the data that’s driving your business forward! From hiring to internal mobility, Tailored Group DNA will empower you to fill the soft-skills gaps on your team and put your expertise to good use while maintaining leveraging the scientific integrity of our Group DNA’s matching algorithm.

Talentoday Manager updates

We’ve improved a few core features that we hope you’ll love. Our biggest updates are improved candidate communication, report file transfer and Talentoday Analytics changes. Here are the headline features in the last month:

  • TM analytics is now available for all Talentoday managers
  • Talentoday account owners can now see individual details by manager to help monitor usage and results.
  • Managers are now able to send a reminder email to all candidates who have not completed the personality assessment.
  • Managers can now send the personality report directly on the platform.
  • Lastly, we have now extended our Snapshot report to all users including those who do not have a Talentoday Manager account.

TM Analytics

Talentoday Analytics allows managers to monitor their usage on the Talentoday portal. Managers are able to easily keep track of the number of individuals they have assessed, the number requests they have sent out and the reports they have downloaded. This feature also includes analytics on the Target Profiles that managers have used and created to match people against a profile.

Analytics for managers is now live.

The owner of the Talentoday Manager account can also keep tabs on their other managers and see a break down of the requests being sent and the reports being downloaded by each manager. A number of other features are currently in the works and will be released in the coming months!

TM analytics helps managers monitor their activity and communication.

Candidate Communication

In order to save our managers time and improve communication between them and their candidates we have added a couple features to make life easier.

When managers send out a link for their candidates to take the test they expect a swift response. The last thing most busy managers want to do is keep track of who has taken the test and who has not. Talentoday does this automatically and now offers the ability to send a reminder email to the individuals who have not completed their test. This is a pre written email that can be sent and is automatically personalized with the click of a button.

You can now send email reminders to candidates who have not completed the assessment.

In response to customer feedback, we have also made it much easier for managers to send reports on the platform. In the past managers would have to download the report as a PDF before sending out to candidates. Now on the platform you can simply click send and an email will automatically be filled and sent to the individual.

Snapshot Report

A few months back we launched our new Snapshot report, a 1 page report on an individual’s talents, development areas, professional behaviors and motivations in the workplace. It was created to help recruiters and managers understand their candidates soft skills quickly so they can spend more time speaking with the right individuals.

Snapshot report is now available to all Talentoday users

Although we have not changed the report itself, we have now made this available to all of our Talentoday users. Now when individuals take the test, they will have access to their personality radar & their snapshot report, for free.
