Deloitte’s Experienced Hire and PDAT (Partner/Director Acquisition Team) sourcing teams had to keep track of thousands of recruiting candidates through hundreds of separate data sources. Given Deloitte’s constant need to attract top talent, we needed a more effective and efficient talent relationship management solution
Inefficient talent tracking and management tools
Scattered data sources and reports
Inadequate success metrics for sourcing and recruiting managers
Time-consuming, non-standard processes
Dozens of disparate spreadsheets and databases for storing contacts
The Deloitte team was responsible for all aspects of development
Defining requirements and build specifications
Configuring and customizing the application
Converting and uploading over 250,000 Lead, Contact, Account and Opportunity records
Creating training material and training over 100 resources across the U.S. and India
Coordinating Single Sign On (SSO) integration with Deloitte U.S. Firms’ IT
Deploying the application
Managing the relationship with salesforce.com for licensing and production support
Using the core Salesforce SFA application, our development team configured and delivered a sophisticated Talent Relationship Management solution that is now used by over 100 Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu sourcers. Implementation was completed in just over 3 months.
