Personnel Management Made Simple in Microsoft Dynamics for Talent

Posted on: October 24, 2017 | By: Jim Bertler | Microsoft Dynamics CRM

In July, when Microsoft Dynamics was still in preview mode, I wrote a blog about the capabilities of talent and it’s Human Capital Management properties. Now, Talent is available to the public and has been updated with new intuitive interfaces and functionality. The Talent concept is broken down into the three principal areas of Human Resource Management.

The first is Employee Management, which tracks employee compensation, development, benefits, leave and absence, and task management, among others. This also contains an Employee Self Service section that lets employees maintain much of their own data and allows HR Management to focus on larger strategic initiatives. The second component is Attract. In this area, you can post jobs and follow applicants through the entire hiring process. You have the ability to watch applicants through the interview and into the offer stages. The third component is Onboard. This allows you to prepare everything that a new employee needs to get set up and have all documentation completed. It allows you set up check lists and tasks with templates so that a new employee can walk through the process and complete each step in one place. In my series of blogs on talent, I will walk through these phases in more detail. In today’s blog though, I would like to start from the beginning and describe how to set up a job and hire an employee.

To bring on a new employee you start with the ‘Personnel Management.’ This is a powerful screen which shows all employees contractors and open positions in the header and all available candidates in the body of the screen. This page is very simple to use, but also very efficient. As shown, you can navigate to your Open Positions, Analytics, and Links to other important parts of the site. From here, if you click open positions, it will bring you to your full list so you can browse to the position in which you need to hire.

Once you have the position open, you can then update any details of the Job. For example, who the position reports to, position duration, payroll information, and other pertinent data points. Once you have the position information completed, you can return to the home screen to find your list of candidates available to hire. You click the Hire button, and this will walk you through an official hiring process where you can actually approve a hire in a few steps. Of course, every organization’s hiring process is different, so you can customize this process to fit your needs. Whether it is attracting candidates then assigning potential jobs in which they fit, or creating jobs then finding the candidates, Microsoft’s strengths are for the user to be able to fit the system to match your organization’s process. Stay tuned for upcoming blogs on how Microsoft Talent can simplify your Attract, Onboard, and Human Resource needs.
