Oracle announces talent acquisition software to improve candidate experience

Tech multinational Oracle has announced the launch of Oracle Recruitment Booster, which assists in finding and hiring talent. The news came at its annual Cloudworld event for 2022.

The software aims to make talent acquisition easier by improving engagement with candidates, building communities of top talent, speeding up hiring, and allowing for a more personalised experience.

Senior vice president of product development at Oracle Cloud HCM, Nagaraj Nadendla, said “We’re all accustomed to personalised experiences from technology in our personal lives, and we expect the same thing when it comes to our professional lives.”


“Candidates seeking new opportunities want a simple, easy-to-use, and engaging recruiting process that meets them where they are and doesn’t drag out. Oracle Recruiting Booster will help our customers successfully hire talent quickly and efficiently with an optimised candidate experience,” said Mr Nadendla.

Some of the features of the Oracle Recruitment Booster as listed in their statement include:

  • Hiring event promotion and support
  • Two-way messaging
  • Expanded Oracle Digital Assistant capabilities
  • Interview management

Tech industry analyst and principal at Valoir, Rebecca Wettemann commented on the announcement: “Candidates are more than a list of skills and job experiences and fostering authentic connections between candidates and organisations is a key step in the talent acquisition process.”

“Oracle recognises that improving the employee experience is not just about driving greater efficiency with advanced technology, but streamlining tasks better managed by technology so humans can focus on opportunities for authentic interactions in the hiring process,” said Ms Wettemann.

Oracle noted the new offering was in reaction to the effects of the pandemic, the ‘great resignation’, and ongoing talent shortages.

Cloudworld 2022 also saw Oracle announce bespoke support for the healthcare industry via enhancements to their Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM).

Executive vice president of applications development at Oracle Cloud HCM, Chris Leone, commented “Healthcare organisations have a plethora of unique workforce challenges, from attracting talent with the right skills and managing complex scheduling structures, to prioritising engagement and growth for employees constantly facing burnout. The better we can support these workers and enable them to succeed, the better care and service they can provide to people all over the world.

“Oracle Cloud HCM can help healthcare organisations better support their workforce. With intelligent, scalable, and secure applications, we can help these organisations address their most complex staffing challenges by automating administrative tasks so workers can stay focused on better patient experiences.”



Employee engagement

Employee engagement is the level of commitment people have to the company, how enthusiastic they are about their work, and how much free time they devote to it.
