Talent Management Innovations

With another exciting Deltek ProjectCon in the books, it’s clear the impact of this year’s conference will continue to be felt amongst customers, partners and Deltek team members for a long time to come. Held this year from October 16-18 in Orlando, Florida, Deltek ProjectCon 2023 attracted over 3,400 project-based professionals from around the world and provided a well-rounded forum for customers to attend sessions and demos, network with Deltek experts, partners, and peers, and even make time for some well-deserved celebrating.

Central topics at this year’s Deltek ProjectCon included a continued commitment to fostering purposeful innovation and delivering increased customer satisfaction, all with the primary goal of delivering a smarter project lifecycle and enabling firms to be more informed, productive, and profitable. These themes were shared across product-level experiences as well, including within Deltek Talent Management’s exciting kick off session which served as an opportunity to explore the journey the solution has taken thus far as well as the compelling advancements that will continue to shape the product in the years to come.

New Generative AI Capabilities— Save Time and Effort in Finding and Hiring the Best Talent

Generative AI was one of the most buzzed-about topics at this year’s event, and for good reason. A type of artificial intelligence designed to create content, code and imagery, GenAI already exists in several Deltek products today with many more new capabilities on the horizon. By continuing to invest in GenAI, Deltek plans to automate, augment, and optimize even more tasks and processes for project-based businesses – including within the Talent Management solution.

Talent Management users will benefit from several AI advancements that will be coming to the product, including the ability to shorten the requisition to revenue cycle using automation and GenAI. Today there are several steps that a user must engage in to fulfill the hiring and onboarding process, from creating a requisition, to deploying job postings, to sending out emails to potential candidates. All of these steps can be automated, and additionally the first draft of content for the job description can be created using Generative AI. Such enhancements will help to streamline recruitment tasks, make recruiter actions more efficient, and free up resources to focus on more important elements of the hiring process.
