About Our Online Application System

What is Taleo?
Taleo is a cloud-based talent management software vendor. It is used by the Human Resource department of The City of Lethbridge to help with talent acquisition and the recruiting process.

Why Taleo?
Enables us to recruit top performers with the right key talents and skills sets. We are able to align them to organizational and performance goals while developing and compensating them appropriately.

It also helps collect relevant information throughout the employee's entire lifecycle, empowering HR, managers, and employees to leverage their cloud talent to drive improved performance and business success.

The technology is a great way to improve processes and provide a better experience for applicants and Human Resources.

Cloud Computing
Oracle Cloud is the industry's broadest and most integrated public cloud. It offers best-in-class services across software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and even lets you put Oracle Cloud in your own data center. Oracle Cloud helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation by increasing business agility, lowering costs, and reducing IT complexity.

The most obvious benefit of a cloud investment is that IT no longer needs to focus on hardware, maintenance and operating systems. Now, the Taleo cloud technology providers are able to handle all IT related issues and basic functions. This allows IT departments to work on more strategic initiatives that will provide more value to the organization. 

Taleo allows us to have access to information anytime and anywhere. This makes accessing information in a timely matter simple for the users. By no longer having to store data manually, we will decrease the use hard copies which will paper. It is also more visually appealing to viewers which helps with understanding the data that Taleo compiles.

Reducing Costs
The cost saving that come along with implementing Taleo will help take the stress off IT by using less hardware and incurring maintenance expenses. This cloud based solution could save the City of Lethbridge as much as 5% in administrative cost savings.

How is the City of Lethbridge keeping my information safe?
