New Features Lay Foundation to Help Build ‘Self-Developing Organizations’
Skillsoft, a global leader in learning and talent management, today announced the general availability of SumTotal’s latest Talent Expansion® suite, designed to optimize individual and organizational performance by helping customers build workplace cultures that promote continuous, self-directed learning and development. This release builds on Skillsoft’s previous release and features deeper, tighter integration of Skillsoft content with SumTotal’s Talent Expansion platform and solutions to deliver a more streamlined, hyper-personalized user experience.
“SumTotal’s latest Talent Expansion suite empowers managers, individuals and business leaders to simplify their approach to professional development and career progression,” SumTotal Senior Vice President of Products and Technology Humair Ghauri said. “We’re bringing together talent analytics, individualized skill and competency gap insight, and the ability to identify and map development needs against career aspirations — all within an intuitive, modern interface. The newest enhancements to the Talent Expansion applications support customers on their journey as a ‘self-developing organization’ by seamlessly connecting people to the learning and curated content that makes development plans meaningful and actionable.”
With engagement and culture cited as the most important priority for HR, according to Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report, organizations must build an enticing, consumer-inspired workplace experience that will increase employee motivation, productivity and retention.
According to the report, “Organizations that create a culture defined by meaningful work, deep employee engagement, job and organizational fit, and strong leadership are outperforming their peers and will likely beat their competition in attracting top talent.”
SumTotal’s Talent Expansion suite helps organizations transform employee engagement into organizational performance by embedding personalized content and development opportunities directly into talent workflows. This release lays the foundation for future generations of the SumTotal platform that will aid organizations in moving their organizations forward by supporting technology-enabled self-development. Dozens of pivotal enhancements and a personalized, consumer-grade experience allow learning to occur naturally and contextually as part of the daily flow of work.
Major release enhancements include:
SumTotal will demo this release and preview future capabilities that enable the “self-developing organization” at the HR Technology Conference being held Oct. 18-22 in Las Vegas. Attendees can visit booth 1500 to see these innovations in action and discuss the latest HR trends, challenges and technology with Skillsoft executives.
