What Does TalentWise Solve for HR Organizations?

Our solution, TalentWise Hire, has simplified the hiring process, from the time HR offers a candidate a position to a new hire’s first day on the job. HR can manage hiring tasks from a single dashboard, including offer letters, background checks, drug screening, E-Verify, new hire forms including I-9, W-4, and more. The result is an efficient and compliant hiring process that delivers a great experience for HR professionals and candidates alike. It’s delivered via software as a service (SaaS) so it’s available online, anytime and anywhere there’s an Internet connection.

As a TalentWise customer, you are provided with a dedicated, U.S.-based, Client Services team that supports you and your candidates. Your team is directly accessible via email and a toll-free phone number, connecting you to a live support specialist, not an automated phone system. And, we answer over 90 percent of all phone calls within three rings.

TalentWise customers further benefit from our internal Compliance Team, who are responsible for monitoring regulatory changes and proactively notifying you to ensure your hiring practices are compliant at all times. Our compliance experts also discuss your organization’s needs upon request.

What's It Like On the Inside?

We don’t expect you to know everything. However, you should have the passion, zest and intelligence to figure things out and drive strong results. Ours is a highly collaborative environment. We love the efficiencies that technology provide us, but we don’t hide behind our computers all day. We like each other, so if there’s a problem to solve or conversation to be had, we talk to each other face to face.

Many times, you’ll find yourself in an impromptu conversation with our CEO or other leaders discussing creative ways to build this business – you’re the pulse of TalentWise!

We work hard but we don’t forget to have fun. We offer numerous events throughout the year including Friday socials, family-friendly events such as bowling and skating and much more. When it’s time for your birthday or work anniversary, we’ll recognize that as well. You’ll be invited to quarterly town hall meetings to hear from our executives about our accomplishments over the quarter. These are open forums and our leaders welcome employee questions and suggestions.

We are laser-focused on providing exceptional customer service and our customer service accolades speak for themselves.

    Approves of CEO


    From a software development standpoint, the work environment is very laid back. My fellow developers are passionate about coding and doing the job right. The company as a whole seems to treat their employees very well.
    The software management seems to be doing better today than it was described in the past. They are involved with your work when they need to be and trust you to get the job done right.
    There are year end bonuses depending upon job performance.


    It's currently a growing company and with that comes some growing pains. But they are doing a good job overall and giving employees a chance to voice their opinions on how to handle changes in the process.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at TalentWise (Bothell, WA).


    Very laid back, they think very highly of their company and themselves. Most of them hired in when the company was young, and they have moved up the ranks, but it is very obvious they have not been mentored. The VP likes to brag about how he is long time friends with the CEO, so it seems special treatment could be an issue.

    New Hire Onboarding Goes High Tech - Podcast with Todd Owens

    Technology is transforming the onboarding process. Tactical onboarding begins with the decision to hire, and ends on day one as that new employee starts meaningful work. Strategic onboarding of course, goes on much longer - however, the strategic can't happen until the tactical is done.

    Lessons from HR Tech to Take Us into 2015

    As usual, the annual HR Tech conference left us energized and inspired for the future, if a little footsore. There were so many great Keynotes, General and Concurrent Sessions, and amazing booths in the Expo Hall. As the dust settled, and we all move into 2015 planning, we are keeping in mind these takeaways from the conference.
