Mzinga announces the first Cloud-based Corporate Alumni Network Platform – Alumni.io

Mzinga®, a leading provider of enterprise social software solutions and services targeting learning, marketing and support markets for employees, customers and partners, announced that it is bringing Alumni.io to market – the first Cloud-based corporate alumni platform.

“It should be no surprise that the most valuable asset in your organization is knowledge. However, that asset it leaving your organization DAILY,” says Andrew Hallowell, Chairman & CEO of Mzinga. “This brain drain happens for many reasons – Millennials seeking greener pastures where they can work in the manner that matches their unique collaborative style, mid-level managers leaving for more responsibility or money and Baby Boomers that are retiring. Additionally a tremendous asset is left untapped by not harvesting and curating the knowledge and best practices in your most connected employees.”

“Mzinga has long been recognized as a leader in social learning and collaboration. When discussing the realities of the changing workforce effect with some of our most progressive clients they are notably concerned. For example 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach retirement age DAILY for the next 20 years according to the Pew Charitable Trust. Other data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that over 40% of the US workforce is currently over the age of 55. We wanted to create a solution that helped our clients to react to this dynamic,” says Mike Merriman, Mzinga’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Mzinga has just unveiled Alumni.io – a unique approach to corporate alumni networks. Where many individuals may participate in an alumni network on LinkedIn or Yahoo Groups – no value flows to the corporation. With Alumni.io this all changes. Alumni.io allows the company to control the membership and flow of information ensuring that their alumni network is an asset rather than a risk. In addition to the benefits to the individual member, the corporation will see dramatic improvements in Talent Acquisition by keeping in touch with the “boomerang hire”; in Talent Improvement via mentoring and collaboration opportunities between employees and talented alumni members; and in Talent Retention by creating the social work environment expected by today’s employees.

Jim Lundy, CEO of Aragon Research, says “today’s approach to corporate alumni networking is disjointed. Smaller companies may attempt to support their alumni via a LinkedIn group and quickly find that it doesn’t deliver value. Some larger organizations may explore alumni functionality in their Human Capital Management suite. Mzinga’s Alumni.io is a fresh approach to alumni networking making it available to companies of any size.”

Alumni.io is available now. It is accessible on any device, for any size team, for any size company, and at truly attractive price points. It is fully integrated with LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. You can start today for free - visit http://alumni.io for more details.
