Key Concept
SAP E-Recruiting sources and manages talent within and from outside your organization through enabling a talent relationship management (TRM) strategy. TRM combines an aggressive recruiting policy with Web-based recruiting tools. A sound TRM strategy focuses on the goals of a company and integrates software to complement those goals.

SAP E-Recruiting offers significant functionality not offered in the R/3 Recruitment module. It offers the possibility to engage candidates outside the context of a traditional application process and enables more proactive sourcing. SAP E-Recruiting manages your potential workforce of internal employees and external candidates sourced through your organization’s career page. See Figure 1 for an overview of its capabilities.
