Better hiring requires better toolsRead the white paper ›
Better insight. Better people. Remarkable business results.
Organizations of every size and every industry are often under pressure to cut costs, but at the same time boost efficiency, productivity, and their bottom line. Cutting specific line items can save money, but quick fix, short-term reactions can't guarantee enduring business success. The key to sustainable, long term growth isn't about cutting back; it's about investing smarter—especially in your people.
Infor Talent Science™ is a patented, cloud-based Predictive Talent Analytics™ solution that helps ensure you have the right people in the right positions to achieve your business objectives. By leveraging large quantities of behavioral and performance data, this software creates predictive models that let you better select, retain, and develop the right talent across the entire employee life cycle and, over time, completely transform your business as more and more best fit hires are selected.

Candidate best fit
Make best fit hiring decisions at every level in your organization by comparing a candidate’s Behavioral DNA®—the measure of 39 behavioral, cognitive, and cultural traits—against that of the "ideal" employee based on your incumbent population. This highly predictive model for analyzing candidates ensures you hire the right person, for every position, every time.
Customized Performance Profiles identify unique behaviors for a specific client’s environment, culture, and market—something an off-the-shelf assessment can’t do. Our software is also highly predictive and successful in driving customer ROI against strategic KPIs with over 100+ published validation studies and over 95% client retention.
Automatically generated intelligent data
Robust analytic tools for hiring process feedback help you determine where your recruiting dollars are most productively spent. Access performance metrics of third-party recruiters, or visualize how in-house recruiters are utilizing the software. Track these metrics in a centralized location so you can fully understand how our system impacts your business.
Attrition rates have dropped as much as 25% to 50%. What we’ve seen so far has allowed us to say this is working for Sutherland and we’re going to take it global across all our locations and 30,000 people.
