Unlike most recruitment platforms in this category, TalentReef provides performance-based evaluation tools to foster employee development within their roles. The software also uses a conversational AI chatbot that automates replies.
TalentReef combines talent management, recruitment, applicant tracking, onboarding, and employee self-service in one platform. They also provide performance evaluation tools that facilitate performance check-ins and general employee development. One of such tools is flexible training programs that managers can set in place for new hires. The progress of these trainings can also be monitored and evaluated. Which we find noteworthy as not a lot of blue-collar recruiting platforms provide these tools.
Talentreef’s features are specifically designed to help you fill low-complexity hourly roles that usually require candidates to be available to start immediately and possess transferable soft skills such as communication, teamwork, punctuality, or the ability to work under pressure.
For instance, high volume hourly hiring requires speed; a fast application process, because it is a tight labor market with limited applicants. TalentReef increases the favorability of your application with features like their AI-powered conversational chatbot, text recruiting, and automated interview scheduling.
Talentreef’s digital onboarding experience is one of the features managers love about this software. It gives potential hires the ability to interact with and fill a number of forms including section I-9s, W-4s, emergency contact forms, voluntary self-identification of disability, maternity leave forms, and so on. The software then consolidates this information and directs it to any of their compliance integration solutions to verify the correctness of these forms. Managers are always kept in the loop with an interactive dashboard that shows candidate progress as they move through the onboarding funnel.
TalentReef would not work for companies seeking to hire white-collar professionals with significant online presence. It specifically caters to wage workers.

TalentReef does not disclose their pricing publicly. You will have to request a quote from their Sales team. One thing you should note is that you will be required to pick a list of features beforehand and they will work with you to curate the solution that best addresses your business concerns. This model ensures you pay for exactly what you need.
TalentReef is best for businesses looking to hire hourly workforce.
