HR Glossary / Talent Pool

A talent pool refers to a database of potential job candidates.


How Does a Talent Pool Work?

A talent pool is a list of potential candidates that have manifested interest in working for a company or have the right profile for current or future job openings. Talent pool databases contain the information of each candidate: name, skills, potential roles they could fill, fit with corporate culture, etc.

Companies use talent pools to recruit and hire new employees, allowing them to both make the recruitment process faster and select the best candidates directly from their database.
