New Delhi, December 4, 2018: Tech Mahindra has launched the first Artificial Intelligence (AI) based, talent exchange market place, Talex, to address issues related to upskilling, reskilling and talent management within the organisation. The solution has been developed by an in-house team.
Powered by Acumos, the open source platform co-developed by Tech Mahindra, AT&T and Linux Foundation, Talex uses AI technology to match candidate profiles with suitable job openings in the organization. It takes into account the previous assignments of the candidates, their educational background, skills, manager ratings, self-rating, awards & accolades, and contribution towards larger organizational goals.
The true differentiating feature of Talex lies in its capability to accept candidate bidsfor best-suited roles using pre-assigned credits, thus, capturing their interest for the role and allowing them to fulfil their career goals within the organisation. Job posters can view applicant profiles, profile match percentages and bid values to judge the perfect fit for the role.
Says Harshvendra Soin, Chief People Officer, Tech Mahindra: said, “Talex is a unique offering that will democratise the talent management domain and enable our workforce to discover appropriate opportunities within the organization, and also help us in retaining and nurturing promising talent. This cutting-edge talent exchange marketplace platform will be a true game changer in making the entire process effortless by adding the element of gamification. It is in line with Tech Mahindra’s ethos of building a workplace of the future by harnessing the power of internal talent.”
