Here Is A Timeline Of A Successful Taleo Implementation
By RecruitingDash

The Challenge

Sara is an HR Manager at a fast-growing company. She needs great candidates to fill multiple jobs. She needs high quality metrics and reporting. She is using a third tier applicant tracking system and it’s too much work to manage. Sara doesn’t have an ATS System Administrator, and doesn’t have time to be one.


Sara spent 60 minutes talking with a RecruitingDash expert and they were able to create a customized proposal for implementing Taleo. RecruitingDash helped her evaluate everything that she needs in a recruiting system and nothing that she doesn’t. Sara likes that RecruitingDash took the time to explain how to best deliver Taleo with the budget available.


RecruitingDash delivered a detailed fixed price, fixed scope proposal that contained everything Sara’s organization needs and nothing that they don’t. It included options which helped Sara understand how Taleo will grow with her organization.


RecruitingDash then drove a fast, structured, 8-week implementation that delivered best practice Taleo configurations perfectly tailored to Sara’s organization. RecruitingDash hosted live training sessions for Sara’s entire team, so they all use Taleo effectively, adhering to best practices.

Ongoing Support

After go-live, RecruitingDash ensures that Sara’s Taleo system continued to run at peak performance, and is continually up-to-date with all the great new features that Taleo releases every quarter. Sara loves that RecruitingDash continues to support her and her needs and didn’t just move onto the next customer.

Great Results

Sara’s team increased applicants by 54%, saved money and time by being able to focus on recruiting, and less time on manual processes and administrative tasks. Sara’s team is now automating the entire new hire onboarding process, eliminating all the paper forms. Her company is getting 100% from their investment in Taleo.

Frequently Asked Questions

Setting up Mobile TBE is moderate complexity in terms of TBE configurations.

The duration of the implementation process depends on the number of features an organization chooses to setup. For example, some organizations need multiple career websites, for example one for hourly hiring and one for corporate hiring. This doubles the work required to configure the Taleo career website and makes the project take a little longer to complete. We use an agile, sprint-based implementation methodology so that features go live throughout the implementation (not all at the end). First go live of Taleo features typically happens after 2 weeks.

Typical implementation durations are as follows:

  • Taleo Recruit: 4–6 weeks
  • Taleo Onboard: 2–3 weeks
  • Taleo Perform (Performance Management): 4 weeks
  • Taleo Compensation Management: 2–3 weeks

We typically recommend only 1–2 people on the client project team. Most implementations require about 2 hours a week of your time: 90 minutes in the weekly project meeting, and then an additional hour each week to review prototype Taleo configurations and provide feedback.

Since Taleo is in the cloud, 100% of our implementations are done remotely, from our office locations around the United States. You will be assigned a RecruitingDash Taleo expert to lead and manage your project. We will set a recurring weekly meeting and drive the agenda each week.

You can easily brand the Mobile TBE Career Website with your logo, choose from a color palette, customize the verbiage to include components of your employee value proposition, and create an integrated experience with your existing employment brand and website "look and feel."

The best practice is to first configure Recruit, and then to setup the Onboard system once Recruit is fully operational. This sequential approach ensures that data flowing from the Taleo Recruit system maps perfectly to data in Taleo Onboard.

For most implementations, there’s nothing that your IT department needs to do, which is one of the primary benefits of choosing a cloud based service like Taleo. That said, when "turning on" the new Taleo Career Website, a link to the new Taleo careers page on your organization’s website must be updated to point to the Taleo Career Website URL.

Additionally, some features in Taleo require a little IT support to setup, but we will let you know these details at the time we submit our proposal.

Taleo can be implemented with virtually any other system. One great thing about Taleo there are existing Taleo HR system integrations already available. In addition, about 80% of our customers choose to use our hybrid integration option, which eliminates the need to manually key in any new hire data into any other system, but is also very cost effective.

With a very feature rich system like Taleo Business Edition, it’s critical that you get everything setup that you need and nothing that you do not need. Therefore, to get you the best price, we will talk with you and ask you a comprehensive set of structured questions to help you determine what Taleo features should be in scope and out of scope, and then RecruitingDash will submit a fixed price proposal to you for exactly what you need. This way, you get the most out of your investment in Taleo but don’t pay to setup features that you might not be ready for or not need.

If we implement Taleo in the best way possible and we don’t teach you how to use the system, then we have failed as your partner. Therefore, training is included with every single implementation we do. All training is delivered remotely via WebEx, but is delivered using your Taleo system so users learn exactly how to use your Taleo system in a best practice way.

Oracle can set up your system, but professional services firms like RecruitingDash typically do so at a much lower cost and also offer value added services (like resume importing or post go-live remote system administration) that Oracle does not offer. Additionally, when software companies setup any system, they really know the software but typically don’t know much about recruiting. RecruitingDash consultants come from a background as HR practitioners with technical expertise. You get the best of both worlds with HR professionals and technical consultants supporting your projects with us.
