SumTotal & Skillsoft, the global leaders in learning and talent management, have unveiled its ground-breaking Winter 2016 Talent Expansion® suite release.
The innovative new features across the talent, learning and workforce applications enable employees to define a personalised development path for career mobility and equip leaders with the insight they need to build highly-engaging workplace cultures to drive business performance.
John Ambrose, senior vice president of strategy and general manager of SumTotal, a Skillsoft company said: “We’re redefining how organisations pursue success and overcome challenges by radically simplifying the expansion of organisational capabilities through continuous development of employees, knowledge acceleration and meaningful insight. With tools that enable the self-developing organisation, the holistic needs of every employee – from individuals to leaders – are met with simple, intelligent talent management processes.”
SumTotal’s Winter 2016 Talent Expansion® release makes it easier than ever for organisations to overcome challenges with engagement, retention, and agility through solutions that empower individuals with access to continuous development opportunities and visibility to pursue career mobility.
Humair Ghauri, senior vice president of products and technology at SumTotal said: “This game-changing approach translates to measurable results – people are engaged through pervasive and contextual development opportunities, knowledge is accelerated and accessible, and workforce capabilities expand to boost productivity and capacity. Winter 2016 Talent Expansion® will empower our customers to practice career transparency to create mobility among their workforce, align skills to organisational goals and keep expertise within the organisation.”
Key features include:
- Dynamic People Profile and Timeline
The adaptive Timeline gives people real-time insight into their development and goal priorities, learning needs and recommendations, recognition and social interaction – all from one visual and interactive snapshot.
- Career Progression
While many solutions provide simple skills comparisons, Winter 2016 Talent Expansion® empowers individuals and managers to have meaningful development discussions as they explore and chart an individualised path for career mobility within the organisation.
- Personalisation Capabilities
The upcoming release allows administrators to dynamically create corporate themes with a few simple clicks, pulling in information from any website to deliver a branding experience that is more than a simple logo on a page.
- Contextual Learning Delivered in Workforce Management
Managers can easily understand and optimise their workforce capabilities by validating training and certification needs when scheduling employees and connecting individuals to the relevant, directly-embedded Skillsoft content, through absence request processes.
Liam Butler, sales vice-president, EMEA, at SumTotal added: “Our Winter 2016 Talent Expansion® suite is set to be a positive disruptive influence on the talent management landscape for the foreseeable future,” stated Never before has there been a technology that affords employees the power to control their own development. We’re giving the industry a glimpse into the future of the self-developing organisation, which are those that prevent rather than plug skills gaps and talent is nurtured through the learning and development frameworks.”
