They can try to use this data to recruit more efficiently and identify future organizational leaders.The four modules contained in talent management software are referred to as the "four pillars."
2) Performance management - allows managers to define and keep track of employee goals and rate progress.
3) Learning and development - facilitates the onboarding process by providing new employees with training materials and enables seasoned workers to further their skills by taking courses and pursuing certifications.
4) Compensation management - helps ensure that performance is reflected in compensation.
