The next generation of Infor Talent Science has a new focus on hiring executives. The new release offers a unique, scientifically-robust executive talent analytics solution, Strategic Leadership Insights (SLI), that provides behavioral insights in the selection process for senior and executive-level talent.
Infor Talent Science is a cloud-based Predictive Talent AnalyticsTM solution that is part of the Infor Human Capital Management (HCM) suite. Infor Talent Science helps organizations hire the right people for the right positions by leveraging large quantities of behavioral and performance data to create predictive models for selection, retention, and development of talent across the entire employee life cycle.
Recognizing that executive leadership style can have an effect on productivity, turnover, and confidence in an organization, Infor designed SLI to gain insight into the behavioral characteristics necessary for success in strategic management positions, to help hiring managers see beyond resumes and references to reveal each candidate's style of leadership.
To create SLI, Infor's team of industrial and organizational psychologists identified competencies related to situations and challenges that executives are likely to face, such as communication, mentorship, negotiation, and strategy. Organizations implementing SLI work with Infor to determine which competencies are most critical for its positions and build custom leadership profiles based on the core competencies identified. Candidate responses to the Infor Talent Science assessment are paired against the leadership profiles to provide the organization with a view into the executive candidate's style with respect to each competency, as well as specific behavioral insights into how they are likely to express their styles on the job.
"To successfully establish and execute corporate strategies, organizations need to have the right executives and senior leaders in place to provide the credibility, authority, and ingenuity to affect change," said Jill Strange, Infor HCM Behavioral Science director. "Every company and every candidate is unique, and now, organizations have a tool to assess a candidate's particular management style for director, vice president, and C-level leadership positions."
