Talent Management leader Halogen Software today announced it has partnered with SmartPost, the industry’s largest distribution channel for job postings, to integrate SmartPost’s sourcing network with Halogen eRecruitment™. With pushbutton access to the world's largest sourcing network, this partnership enables Halogen eRecruitment™ customers to automatically post job requisitions to thousands of job boards to streamline their sourcing and recruiting activities.

Halogen eRecruitment™, delivered with Version 11 of the Halogen Software Talent Management Suite, is the first applicant tracking system(ATS) to fully integrate the recruiting process with all other talent management programs. The suite now provides recruiting and HR with a single solution for managing all talent management functions. The partnership delivers Halogen Software customers an industry-leading sourcing tool to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of identifying and evaluating employment candidates.

“HR and recruiting professionals need solutions that help them streamline the workflow around talent management and to focus on what really matters – aligning their people to their business objectives,” said Donna Ronayne, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Halogen Software. “We’ve partnered with SmartPost to give our customers a simple, effective way to maximize sourcing strategies while ensuring that recruiting activities are tightly aligned with their overall talent management strategy.”

With the Halogen Talent Management Suite, HR only needs to manage one set of competencies and one set of job descriptions across recruitment, performance, succession and learning functions. Job requisitions in Halogen eRecruitment are automatically generated based on the job descriptions managed in the suite. With the integration of SmartPost, those job requisitions can then be seamlessly published to thousands of job boards at the click of a button.

“SmartPost eliminates much of the time consuming, tactical sourcing tasks for recruiters by providing a comprehensive distribution channel and media recommendations engine, including access to hundreds of specialized niche job boards,” explained Carmen Doherty, Vice President, Senior Director, SmartPost. “The integration of SmartPost with Halogen Software’s new applicant tracking system increases the efficiency and effectiveness of identifying qualified candidates.
