Mobile talent management company, Peoplefluent, has released details of its latest applications specifically designed for the iPad.
The range, named Fluency on the Move, contains four mobile applications: Executive Explorer, Manager Compensation Assistant, Manager Guidebook and Candidate Explorer.
Executive Explorer is designed to provide executives with profiles of people within the organisation.
Manager Compensation Assistant assists managers and the compensation professionals supporting them with a hand-held experience.
Manager Guidebook focuses on what managers need to know about their HR responsibilities and role.
Candidate Explorer allows hiring managers to review candidates on their requisitions and provides them with feedback on their candidates.
The solutions aim to enable busy HR professionals and managers to access and leverage talent management information while on-the-move.
It enables an in-depth, real-time insight into workforce trends and talent analytics through highly visual information that are summarised and analysed.
Peoplefluent chairman and CEO, Charles Jones, said, “The market is driven by the consumerisation of technology, where the inspiration for and the use of technology are transformed by an emotional connection, and that is exactly where we meet our users.”
The company said that it created the applications for the iPad as it is expected to account for almost 85 per cent of the tablet computer market by the end of the year and also because most HCM applications are not specifically designed for the iPad.
According to Aberdeen Group analyst, Mollie Lombardi, mobile human capital management (HCM) is becoming an important asset to bigger companies.
A study of 230 companies conducted by the firm showed that best-in-class companies are 26 per cent more likely than other organisations to use mobile HCM tools.
It also found that 44 per cent of all best-in-class companies are already using such tools, with 30 per cent more planning to implement in the near future.
Lombardi said that employee engagement reaches an elevated level, along with a higher amount of employees exceeding expectations when mobile tools are utilised.
