TalentSoft and CrossKnowledge join forces to provide an integrated Talent Management and Learning solution

TalentSoft, a European leader in cloud-based Talent Management solutions, and CrossKnowledge, a global provider of distance training solutions, announce a partnership that offers companies a complete talent management suite, including all forms of training.

Developing talent at the heart of a strategic alliance

A key loyalty and employee performance lever, training is a strategic priority for companies.  With this in mind, TalentSoft and CrossKnowledge are joining forces to offer HR directors a smart combination of their talent and training management solutions. The objective: to align HR and training programs with company strategy and to leverage all forms of learning in order to increase an organization’s speed and agility.

Combining the forces of two companies of international dimension, this partnership meets the requirements of multinationals by offering them a multilingual and multi-currency solution, fully compliant with local legislative and regulatory requirements.

“Distance learning has become a key component in skills and competencies development processes. By integrating the CrossKnowledge platform with our talent management solution, we are strengthening the ability of employees to develop and take charge of their career,”explains Alexandre Pachulski, CEO of Products at TalentSoft.

A daily management portal for training and skills

The integration between the two solutions, to be launched in the first quarter of 2014, will provide HR departments with a powerful tool for identifying and developing employees’ competencies.

Training executives and managers will thus have access to a set of tools for managing and monitoring training: training catalogue management, creation of personalised programs, registrations, monitoring the degree of completion of training, etc.

They will benefit fully from the power of the search engine included in TalentSoft for creating groups – according to the filter criteria associated with managing talent (appraisals, skills, career reviews) – and so will be able to include them in training programs targeted to specific employee groups.

Employees will access e-learning training directly from their TS My TalentSoft portal. They will be able to assess their progress for a training course at a glance: time spent, rate of completion, etc. Finally, every approved training course will automatically be added to an employee’s on-line profile for a clearer picture of the skills that he/she has acquired.

TalentSoft and CrossKnowledge solutions are used by companies with a very advanced vision of talent management and which place the employee at the centre of HR processes and policies. This partnership will allow our customers to better reconcile employeesexpectations, managers’ objectives and the issues for HR managers, adds Steve Fiehl, Chief Innovation Officer at CrossKnowledge.
