The problem with talent management 

Employees today demand transparent development opportunities (i.e., a path forward). A lack of career development is the most common reason people quit their jobs (McKinsey). And driving performance is one of HR teams’ key priorities while navigating economic uncertainty.

But Global HR teams are often busy, juggling various tasks, from managing payroll to hiring abroad, across dozens of tools. As the company grows, so does the need for more sophisticated processes. Leadership pushes for performance reviews, and employees demand development opportunities. 

As HR teams only introduce initiatives one by one, they're often tackled in isolation. The result is performance reviews that don’t lead to action, training budgets spent without direction, and career frameworks forgotten within weeks. 

From an admin perspective, this means juggling multiple spreadsheets, tools, and meeting notes while spending more money than necessary on disparate systems.

AI-powered performance development that connects the dots

Today, we’re launching Deel Engage for all Deel customers: An all-in-one talent development suite that connects the dots between career development, performance, and learning—powered by embedded AI technology that saves busy people teams hours every step of the way.

With Deel Engage, you can create a single source of truth for your team’s company-wide goals, configure custom performance review cycles in minutes, and retain top talent with a culture of learning and development.

Career Development: Clarifying role expectations and the path to progression

Career Development lets you define career paths for all teams and roles—individual contributors and leaders—and define them with detailed competencies. This way, employees better understand success and priorities in their roles and receive a motivating roadmap for their development.

These frameworks can regularly turn into huge projects, spanning several months, as people managers are too busy to spend hours diving into detailed role descriptions. That’s where our AI can help. In just a few clicks, you can get a first draft of your complete career framework, including detailed descriptions and leveled competencies.

Performance: Identify skills gaps and drive success with goals and feedback reviews

Continuous performance improvement is all about rewarding high performers, understanding challenges, and identifying areas for growth. 


With Goals on Deel, you can align your whole company on OKRs with transparent targets. In just a few clicks, you can define goals for individuals, teams, or the whole company in regular cycles and tie this automatically to performance reviews. Keep your entire organization accountable and track progress in real-time with a single source of truth to review goals by team, status, and individuals.

  • Optional automated assignments to trigger review cycles based on employee lifecycle events like starting date.

Learning: Create, uncover, and assign effective courses

Learning is the next logical step after defining core desired competencies (Career Development) and uncovering opportunities (Performance) for growth. It’s the process of closing skill gaps and developing talent strategically.

However, learning it’s often tricky to track and assign relevant courses and tie this back to performance in a seamless way, and finding reliable training is time-consuming. Here’s where our Learning Management System shines:
