Integrated, On-Demand Talent Management for Technology Companies

Technology companies move fast — and so do your talent management needs. Your company may relate to a recent Harvard Business Review Survey that identifies four factors of organizational performance success for technology companies that include managing “the cool factor,” relentless pressure, consistent ambiguity and technology workforces as one big network of people who work for or with the same people over and over again. BirdDogHR can help.

Recruiting and Hiring

Onboarding

The last thing you want to do with a new hire is bore them with HR paperwork. The quicker you can move them through this process and into new employee training and new projects, the sooner they become productive engaged employees.

Depending on your company policy new hires can even complete paperwork prior to their first day. With BirdDogHR Onboarding you are also ensuring that a consistent and compliant documentation process is completed for all new hires.

  • E-verify new hires
  • Access current federal and state forms online
  • Eliminate data input errors and integrate data with your payroll system

Performance Management and Goal Alignment

Technology companies are rethinking the way they handle performance management. When a large percentage of your employees live in an agile world, manual annual performance reviews are lackluster. The new trend of combining frequent feedback with the annual review and putting it all online combines the best of both worlds. The result is increased transparency which aligns well with the collaborative nature of technology companies.

BirdDogHR Performance Management is flexible to handle communication and documentation at a frequency that is best for your company. Offering goal management, out of the box competencies, 360 reviews and project reviews from a computer or mobile device allows ultimate flexibility. It’s a win-win as the company gets timely insight into employee performance and the employee is frequently engaged with their goals, manager feedback and is focused on success.

  • Automate and centralize reviews for consistency and efficiency
  • Align employee and company goals
  • Configure review frequency and touchpoints
  • Assess performance by project

Improve Employee Training

Now more than ever technology companies have an affinity for online learning and collaboration — but there’s a new twist that is being inserted. Instead of implementing systems that are bloated with functionality that companies don’t need and will never adopt, organizations seek a learning solution that is easy to use, integrated with other HR systems and mobile-friendly.

The BirdDogHR Learning Management System (LMS) was created to help you meet all of your learning goals. Using the BirdDogHR LMS, companies can deliver training when it’s needed, automatically manage training for compliance and certifications, distribute content to a mobile workforce and report course completions. The result is a workforce with access to all the training they need and the ability to access the information when they need it.

  • Deliver learning content anytime and anywhere
  • Align training with performance goals and metrics
  • Track training completion and certifications
  • Search the course catalog for on-demand training

Career Planning and Succession Management

The technology industry thrives on innovation. However, it’s not a solid talent management strategy to focus on or reward innovation alone. Without leadership, management skills, business continuity planning and succession planning technology companies put themselves at risk.

BirdDogHR Succession can help you turn informal and formal feedback into career and succession management. Using data fed from BirdDogHR Performance you’ll be able to see employee strengths and weaknesses and compare those across the entire workforce. The result is a quick process to identify high potentials, understand strengths, offer training to improve weaknesses and build a plan to ensure that all positions have a successor and that employees are ready to take the next step.

  • Identify employee strengths and weaknesses across the workforce
  • Use 9 Box to Identify high potentials
  • Create career plans based on job competencies
I think about talent in a very integrated way. Your employees need to have one experience...and that's hard to find in one system. It's hard to find in a system that's quite intuitive to use, and it's hard to find at a good price point. BirdDogHR absolutely does all of those things.
