Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM) Go-Live Announcement

Posted on Jan 25, 2012

TAM, the latest release component in the new HRS system, is scheduled to go-live on February 20, 2012. 

Once rolled out, Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM) will have a considerable impact on the University of Wisconsin System.  It will not only transform the way people apply for unclassified openings, but also revolutionize  employee recruitment and hiring processes by enabling electronic routing and approvals, saving time, and reducing the use of paper. This will be done by streamlining and modernizing current processes.  

TAM brings a variety of new opportunities to the University of Wisconsin System. Some of these include:  

·         State of the art system security which ensures applicant data and reviews are protected.
·         Decreased amount of paper application materials which reduces the chance they could be misplaced or lost due to decentralized paper trails.
·         Streamlined online processes for faster approvals and quicker hiring decisions.
·         Real time applicant status monitoring with the use of applicant tracking.
·         Increased chances of attracting first-rate candidates by providing an online application process:   

o    Many applicants want the ease and convenience of applying online instead of mailing hard copy applications.  Mailing paper applications often causes applicants to feel uncertainty because there is no assurance their application will arrive on time. 
o    TAM diminishes the opportunity for important documents to get lost or delayed in the mail.  It empowers applicants by guaranteeing their application has arrived instantly.

·         Increased transparency for interview and hiring committees when evaluating candidates.
·         Reduces UW's carbon footprint by creating a paperless process for applying.

Positions approved for recruitment following the go-live date will be using TAM.  Christal Vang will be introducing and training TAM to Search and Search Committees as new searches roll out.
