Leading enterprises such as Coca-Cola Hellenic, Finastra, and VMWare are already using the new Talent Operating System.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – September 11, 2019 Beamery today announced the industry's first Talent Operating System TOS, a platform that allows enterprises to manage the entire talent journey with one system. Beamery's TOS centralizes a company's candidate data, applications and talent operations, allowing recruiters to attract, engage, and retain top candidates on one unified platform, while providing a seamless talent experience.
Alongside the launch of the TOS, Beamery have released a new iteration of data enrichment engine Sherlock. This is foundational to the entire platform, automatically enriching and deduplicating candidate information, and mapping rich behavioural and professional data to every record. High-quality data makes it easy for recruiters to provide candidates with the same whiteglove experience that marketing teams use to target consumers and allows talent leaders to draw better insights across the entire talent journey.
“With the Beamery talent operating system, we re-shaped our whole strategy and developed a new mindset in how we approach candidates - our potential employees,” said Dr Magdalena Masluk-Meller, Talent Sourcing Lead at Zalando. “We’re able to keep conversations going with talent from whom we get a warm impression, or who we meet at events and who attend our webinars. Beamery allows us to leverage these first touches to engage top talent with the right content, at the right time, at scale.”

Beamery’s TOS is comprised of three core suites which map to the different stages of the talent journey — Attract, Engage, Retain.

Internal Mobility: Companies can run internal programs that leverage the proactive approach they use for external talent. Map internal skills to upcoming jobs, build an internal talent hub, and offer vertical and horizontal mobility options for high potential talent. Surveys: Automatic, contextual surveys to capture real time candidate feedback at every stage of the recruiting process and help companies can make meaningful changes to the talent experience.
“Almost all business leaders describe talent as their greatest asset, and talent acquisition as one of the most important challenges they face today ,” said Sultan Saidov, President of Beamery. “The businesses winning the war for talent are turning talent data into a competitive advantage - a central operating system that can harness and enrich your talent data is the key to personalizing the candidate journey and prioritizing the right candidates.
Data at most large organizations is siloed and split between disconnected systems and processes , resulting in a reactive and frequently negative experience for both candidates and recruiting teams . Our new TOS supports our mission to make companies more proactive and intelligent so they can provide the best candidate experience possible and attract, engage, and retain top talent.”
This announcement comes on the heels of significant company growth. In the last year alone, Beamery doubled its annual recurring revenue ARR and expanded its customer base to include leading enterprises such as Coca-Cola Hellenic, Colliers Mac Nicholls,Inc. and Finastra International Limited. The company established go-to-market and technology partnerships with leading organizations such as Workday, Cornerstone, Entelo and more, as well as doubled headcount across its London, Austin and San Francisco offices with key leadership additions.
“Beamery has flipped talent acquisition on its head,” said Alastair, Partner and investment advisor at EQT Ventures. “With Beamery’s Talent Operating System, hiring is now a proactive, data-driven and relationship-focused process. Beamery are doing for Talent what Salesforce and Marketo did for sales. There are obvious parallels between sales and marketing, and talent acquisition — and the fact that these key processes should be run out of a single system. We’re excited to continue to partner with them in their rapid growth as more and more globally leading companies turn to Beamery to win the war on talent.”
