talentReef overview

What is talentReef?

talentReef is a social recruiting platform and talent management software designed to be used with hourly workforces in service industry companies and franchises. Tailored solutions are available for small firms and medium & large enterprises in retail, wholesale, entertainment, hotel & hospitality, grocery stores, restaurants, and more. The system integrates with other business applications, including payroll and POS systems, and offers tools for managing social recruiting, applicant tracking, pre-employment assessment, onboarding, employee development & training, performance appraisal, and more.

talentReef enables users to promote jobs across multiple channels, including social networks, job boards, career sites, search engines, email campaigns, mobile devices, and walk-ins, all from a single platform. The built-in employee referral portal, along with referral campaigns and reward systems, enables users to accelerate their employee referral program, and automated notifications keep users updated of progress. A Talent Community can also be created, allowing users to nurture a pool of potential applicants, with members automatically updated when jobs relevant to their interests are posted. Ineligible applicants are filtered out of the application process before manager reviews, and can be added to the talent pool for future opportunities.

talentReef’s digital onboarding process can send employee data to other business systems, removing the need for manual data entry and streamlining workflows. E-Verify, I-9, and State Withholding Tax processes are built-in, and users can run compliance reports at any time. Work opportunity tax credit (WOTC) forms can also be submitted electronically. New hires can be trained before their first day, using position-specific training in a variety of formats. Once onboarded, employees can manage their worker profiles online, with the ability to update contact information, tax withholdings, direct deposit accounts, EEO/OFCCP details, and more.

All-in-one and easy to learn.

TalentReef has been a positive experience since we came over to them. Our HR staff have become much more efficient with talent management since making the switch. Their product has changed many handwritten tasks into completely digital processes. Some of the tasks that we used to have to do in person with a new hire are now able to be completed before they even come in for their first day. We strongly recommend considering TalentReef if you have any doubts or concerns about the current system you are using. You won’t be disappointed!

Pros
TalentReef allowed us to create a personalized hiring website that helps us stand out from other companies. TalentReef will then push our personal site out to many of the job search engines on the Internet. There software is also an all-in-one solution for our on-boarding needs. For our administrators, they are able to select applications, schedule interviews, leaves interview notes, hire, complete the full on-boarding process, and then continue to document employee issues and other events for potential future use. This software helps our team remain professional and ensures that we properly document any employee issues that can then be used in the case of firing an employee or dealing with inquiries from unemployment service.

Cons
TalentReef can be slightly confusing at first. Because there are so many features, the learning process can take some time. They do offer great support however to help ensure each client is supported in a timely manner. We recommend spending time just going over their training pages to familiarize yourself with the software. Your experience with the software will be all the better for it.

I work for a company that has utilized Talent Reef for nearly a year. I have had an opportunity to see this product change and grow as it adds new clients. This product has been helpful for our organization as it has allowed us to focus on sustainable growth without pulling out our hair during orientation with hourly and/or salaried team members. It has stream-lined our process and gives us the opportunity to sustain HR best practices.

Pros
I enjoy the personal attention I have gotten from the customer service team. I will mention that this took a willingness and interest on both our parts to forge a relationship. As with all professional relationships, one must practice care and compassion. The customer service team is great when treat them with dignity and respect. I have also enjoyed the over intuitive nature of this product. It's not challenging to use albeit some strangely positioned features at times ("Source versus Hired" for the same candidate always seemed strange to me).

Cons
As with any product, at times it can get a little "sensitive" and not feel like loading and/or completing a task/form. The customer service team has been stellar at solving these mini issues with me though! Additionally, it's kind of a pain to go through someone to create or change/modify a job description. I completely understand and respect the process, but it feels like more work on the TR team than is sometimes necessary. I wish the admin. had the ability to change the postings and maybe submit for approval to TR? Maybe that would make it easier on both sides of the equation?

Talentreef was part of a nationwide rollout for our brand. I am a franchise/local admin for this.

We are still using this software, more out of necessity than the fact that we enjoy using it. I would not recommend it to anyone who does not require it. This is because the product seems unfinished and the interface is buggy.

Pros
There are a multitude of HR features that come with this product. It has the ability to accept applicant input from multiple hiring sites (corporately owned, Indeed, Snagajob etc). You can setup permissions for many different types of user accounts (HR manager, admin, general manager, etc.).

Cons
There are too many steps to accomplish the basics. There might be a way to save multiple steps into a single custom button, but I have yet to find this. The company may have very few customer service representatives or just not like to take the time to respond to requests. They often point you to their weekly training webinars and online resources to figure things out. Most of our users have found this product unnecessarily frustrating to use. As a result, there is a low adoption rate among our multi-unit franchise.

Review Source: Capterra

Initially used in a larger company and the training process for managers to use effectively was long and confusing. Have a plan to implement and train users thoroughly or it will not be used correctly. Once familiarity is there it is a great tool for a team to use to be on the same page for hiring process where turnover is more frequent

Pros
Online application process is nice and user friendly. Was a great platform for a small and large business to be able to accept online and mobile applications for employment. Also a great to to onboard staff through the hiring process

Cons
Set up requires many man hours. You get out if it what you put into it

Very robust talent management software that could use some tweaks to the UI

Pros
Talent Reef is the talent management software that we utilize daily for onboarding team members. From applications, interviewing, hiring and tracking all legal needs this software delivers in a very vibrant UI.

Cons
The completion of certain forms is an ongoing thorn for what would be an otherwise great piece of software. On both the onboarding team member, as well as the overseeing manager, there are times where it can be confusing to know if a certain task/field has been filled out and has led to some delays in completing a team members hire process.
