Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent is scheduled for release in July 2017, but you can experience it right now with Microsoft’s technical preview.

The Talent app will be available to licence on its own or as part of the Unified Operations Plan, which includes Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations as well as the Retail application. 

What is Dynamics 365 for Talent?

The Talent application automates and helps manage administrative workforce activities for both full-time employees and contractors. You can match employees to the jobs that optimise their interests and talents by defining and mapping skills, competencies, education, and development. Employees can identify career opportunities that can help them to fulfil their potential and goals.  

Personnel management

Dynamics 365 for Talent lets employees maintain their own data, reducing the time and effort that HR staff need to spend on routine activities, freeing up time to focus on more strategic initiatives. Intuitive, self-service pages let employees update personal information, including certifications, and helps employees monitor progress on goals and prepare for upcoming performance reviews. Approval workflows can be implemented that keep everyone informed as changes are made.  

Compensation and benefits

Manage standard compensation activities, including defining fixed and variable compensation plans, as well as spot, cyclical, short-term, or annual bonuses. You can also manage long-term incentives, such as cash awards, stock awards, and stock options.

Competencies and development

You can use competencies to compare the skills, knowledge, or abilities defined for a job with those that workers have already obtained. You can track certificates that a worker has earned, tests they have taken, and education they have completed. Managers can also examine current and future strategic needs to help their employees shape their own objectives, and then identify the training needed to develop the required competencies.

Employee and manager self service

In a single workspace, employees can view and update their personal information, as well as see upcoming courses and reviews. Employees can view any items that have been assigned to them and review their compensation. Managers can also view their organisations from a single workspace, including summaries of their team, and they can find information related to the positions, compensation, and performance goals for each team member.

Analyse data with Power BI

Power BI provides flexible and comprehensive analysis of workforce, compensation, and training data. Each area has its own set of reports containing data visualisations that allow you to gain a deeper understanding of your human capital.
