LeverTRM: The end-to-end talent acquisition platform

Leveraging Lever has enabled Talend to transform the recruitment process top-to-bottom. Benefits include:

Building a list of top-tier talent

Jon finds it puzzling how many recruiters are willing to drop 2 or 3 final-stage candidates (i.e., “silver medalists”) after a role is filled. Lever empowers Talend to continue nurturing these “silver medalists” until a similar or better position opens up.

Maintaining relationships with candidates

Talend’s TA team created a “consider for future roles” tag within LeverTRM. When a candidate demonstrates that they’d be a great fit at a later date, recruiters add this tag alongside other helpful identifiers such as “role” and “location.”

Eliminating cold outreach

The Global Talent Engagement Lead, Nath Hollis, has an ambitious goal: eliminating cold email recruitment altogether. Before Lever, that would have been impossible. But with so many candidates in the pipeline, his goal is quickly becoming a reality.

Maintaining long-term relationships with candidates

Talend is committed to internal mobility, referrals, and nurtured candidates. Leveraging these talent pools means that fewer than ¼ of our roles require us to start from square one. When you’re resource-limited, that’s how you win.
