Talent pipeline definition

Talent pipeline refers to a pool of potential candidates, either company's employees who are promotion prospects or external candidates, who are qualified and ready to fill a position.

Talent pipeline is an aftermath of “relationship-centric” recruiting and it shifts company's strategy from reactive to proactive recruiting.
