[Press Release] According to Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the global leader of SaaS (Software as a Service) talent management solutions, companies of all kinds are cultivating their key competitive advantage — their people — by deploying Taleo Learn, the company's comprehensive solution for delivering, tracking, and managing formal and social learning content.
Taleo Learn enables organizations large and small to streamline learning and development and improve time to competency. Taleo achieves this by providing a single access point for the widest array of learning modes, including online, classroom, on the job training, blended learning, discussion forums and more.
"Our services are only as good as our people, so implementing Taleo Learn has become a strategic imperative for fully developing our more than 1,200 team members," said Jeff Buhler, Senior Vice President for Massey Services, Inc., the nation's fifth largest provider of pest prevention, termite protection and landscape services. "With Taleo, we can cost-effectively streamline training for management, sales and service technicians with carefully targeted programs featuring content that will engage our team members and ensure they remain at the forefront of industry best practices."
Taleo reaches beyond traditional learning activities to cost-effectively make the most of existing resources and knowledge. For instance, social learning features such as discussions, ratings and reviews, and file sharing help organizations to develop true learning communities where experts can share what they know with new hires and geographically distant colleagues. The Taleo LMS allows customers to embed and reuse informal learning content, including PDF files, videos and Microsoft Office files, directly within the Taleo Learn environment.
Taleo's innovative use of online portals allows customers to have total control over the look, feel and functionality of their learning environments. With its user-friendly editor and self-service configuration tools, Taleo makes it simple for LMS administrators to create specially targeted sub-portals to address specific projects, new product training, events, or initiatives.
Administrators can quickly and easily distribute content across all portals with Taleo's tools, content management capabilities and reusable components — while retaining pixel-level control over branding, layout and workflows. Capabilities like these allow a typical customer to create a new portal in minutes. In fact, one medical device manufacturer deployed its global compliance initiative in over 20 languages while another regulatory consulting organization has rolled out more than 100 sub-portals to support the unique business requirements and training needs of the company's healthcare customers.
"Since we acquired Learn.com a year ago, we've delivered five new releases of our learning platform — so clearly, Taleo is committed to driving innovation in talent development," said Jason Blessing, executive vice president of products and technology at Taleo. "Whether knowledge transfer comes from traditional and proven LMS content or from rapidly emerging social learning channels, Taleo helps companies keep their edge by developing the best possible talent in the most effective ways."
Taleo Learn also works with other Taleo solutions to drive talent intelligence throughout the employee lifecycle. For instance, the latest edition of Taleo Enterprise gives employees, managers and training administrators the tools and flexibility they need to analyze workforce capabilities, uncover skill gaps, and refine development strategies. These include the ability to share learning metrics lets managers gauge how employees are adopting new training programs. Taleo has also added new tools for publishing, such as reports that can be tailored to answer specific business questions, so talent development strategies are informed by an understanding of how they align with key business imperatives. And learning histories have added training, completion data, and certificates from courses completed outside the organization -- resulting in more comprehensive insights into how and where talent is developing.
Taleo (NASDAQ: TLEO) helps organizations improve the performance of their business by unlocking the power of their people. Through its cloud-based platform, Taleo optimizes recruiting, performance management, learning and compensation — and integrates them all so managers have the insights they need to achieve talent intelligence. Customers also plug into Taleo's unique Talent Grid community to harness the power of proven best practices, millions of users, and Taleo-ready partner solutions.
