Know your talent community
Your talent defines you and determines your success. So it makes sense that building your talent community should be one of your top priorities.
A community of people who can deliver your business today and into the future. These could be employees, alumni, contractors, associates, your followers, people in your pipeline and those that want to work for you.
In competitive markets knowing who is in your corner, what they can do, what they want and when they are available can make all the difference.
Internal or external, introvert or extravert(!), your whole community’s potential will be visible, putting you in control and helping you get ahead of the competition.
Smart Planning with intelligent insight
We don’t just match on skills or a job title. Our ground-breaking algorithms reflect what is important to you and your candidates so you can see the fit through their eyes as well as yours. This gives you unprecedented levels of insight. When both your needs and aspirations come together, you get a perfect fit.
So now you can plan with confidence. Whether you are looking within your talent community or the wider Optunli talent market, for the short or long term, for roles or projects, or simply what might be around the corner, you can see the best people with the best fit.
This level of agility and foresight are crucial in today’s competitive marketplace.
Discover true engagement
We think engagement is about much more than perks and pool tables, regular management check-ins or engagement surveys. It is about ensuring that someone is self-motivated at work – when they are working for you because they know that they are working ultimately for themselves and their future. When you both know that what they are doing has value for you both. When they are an equal participant in their career, their development and their future. When someone ‘fits’ they feel engaged naturally.
Let Optunli help you find the people who know you are important to them and their future.
So, are you interested?
And now for the magic!
It’s more than a match
No-one has a crystal ball, and no-one can read minds… but Optunli can get you close! With the right insight, you can have more effective conversations with your people.
We go far beyond a simple match. We have created dynamic, holistic and innovative technology that is controlled by each and every person. Each can say what they are looking for, what they need, what their priorities and preferences are. And you can see how your people see their opportunities and how these meet their hopes and aspirations. You can start to really understand what motivates each person. You can see how closely people meet your requirements. You can change requirements and see the impact on results. All without needing to engage until you are ready.
Optunli creates the chance to find the perfect fit and the perfect relationship between you and your people. And most importantly it gives both you and your people value immediately. Now, that is so much more than a match.
Taking ‘skills' to a whole new level
We see skills as something that describes what you do, and can do again, and again and again. There are thousands of skills that combine to create you and what is required to be successful in a role.
We develop our skills. Organisations need them. So it’s important we have a common way to describe them and just how good we are. Organisations also need to be able to describe what they need in a way that can be delivered.
So we have curated over 20,000 standardised skills (transferable, personal and specialist skills) that reflect what people actually do and how they can achieve, acquire, grow and develop.

Your people have already invested in you. They want to build their career with you, and yet the vast majority will get their next job in another organisation. Which means you lose their knowledge, skills and networks. If your employees have visibility of opportunities they will be far less likely to seek their next role externally. What would a 5% reduction in attrition be worth to you – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
When you build your talent community, and plan or make visible opportunities, you will be able to see the fit. You will also be able to understand the gap. This means you can avoid recruitment costs and plan training with confidence, knowing it meets the requirements of the business and the ambitions of your people. Time and time again.
Surprisingly only 12% of employees leave an organisation for more money. (source Leigh Branham, author of The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave) So understanding what else motivates them can be much more cost effective, especially if they become naturally self-motivated. This also leads to reduced attrition, reduced recruitment costs, more effective L&D, improved resource planning and improved productivity, all contributing to higher employee value.
You can shortlist people before choosing the most appropriate selection process, cutting down recruit time and costs by up to 60%, whilst reducing the pressure on HR and the recruitment team. Optunli’s Applicant Tracker integrates with the individual’s Opportunity Tracker for a great candidate experience. And it’s not just for recruitment. You can use Optunli for any selection process including succession planning and top talent selection.
We believe in equality. And Optunli was born from this. Our tech is based on unbiased matching that reflects the needs, requirements and priorities of those using it. We also have some neat features that can help HR support their D&I Policy. Please ask for a demo if this is an area your business is addressing.
Whether internal or external, introvert or extravert, all your people are visible. With new unprecedented and unbiased insight, you can help the business plan more effectively, and respond to changing needs in true partnership with the business. HR processes can be made more effective and efficient. You could even see who may be a flight risk.
As our tech helps to find the perfect fit, it means that someone is self-motivated, working hard for both themselves and for you. Ultimately this means that productivity levels go up. We know you look after your top performers. We know you take care of the bottom performers too. But what would happen if you increased the productivity of the majority of your people?
We understand predicting the future is a challenge. In Optunli there is no need to have all the answers before you start planning. Just enter the details you know and you will see people who can deliver your plans. Refine your opportunities as your thinking develops and press publish when you are ready to commit to your plans. It’s that easy.
It is easy to build career families in Optunli. It’s just as easy to make these visible to inspire your people. As career ladders are making way for career experiences, Optunli helps people navigate across and upwards in companies, as well as get involved in internal projects.
Optunli is easy to implement as a standalone platform, so that you and your people can quickly take advantage of the invaluable insight it provides. It can also integrate with your existing systems where needed, to ensure a seamless experience for your end users. Let us know what you need.

"As a small team we are always calling on our people to work outside of their official job descriptions. We can see how Optunli can help make those with the talents and desire to develop visible within our current community. As it grows it will help us develop a flexible community to call on when this falls outside of our current skillsets."
