Talent pools can reduce the time you spend on the hiring process. Having an existing body of unsolicited applications to sort through, or a list of candidates who weren’t right for one position but might be right for another, can save considerable time, money and internal resources.
Use talent pools to confirm that you have enough applicants to cover your company’s future talent needs and avoid leaving your company vulnerable to potential crises when key employees leave.
