IBM announced new cloud-based solutions to enable organizations to use analytics and workforce science to identify top talent, expand and deepen employee engagement and manage transformational change to provide differentiated client encounters. The new offerings are provided through IBM’s Smarter Workforce initiative. The solutions also helps clients use social, analytics and digital experience technologies to identify top performers, evaluate workforce readiness, and guard against future talent attrition.
IBM’s new Talent and Change consulting practice helps clients prepare for the transformational change required to build a smarter, more connected workforce.
The practice gives clients access to organizational change management methods, tools and expertise gained from thousands of client engagements and IBM’s own transformation initiatives. It addresses four key areas – Organizational Change, Talent Analytics, Employee Experience and HR Cloud – with an overall focus on helping clients use cloud to deploy, manage and access their HR solutions and assets to drive business results.
IBM is delivering three new cloud-based solutions to give clients deeper insight into the talent and transformational change required to build the next generation workforce:
IBM Kenexa Predictive Hiring: Gives business leaders access to workforce analytics and behavioral assessments to understand individual, job, team and organizational traits that define top performers. These dynamic profiles help ensure the right candidates are hired and effectively deployed.
IBM Kenexa Workforce Readiness: Enables clients to assess current workforce readiness to address existing and emerging business demands. It combines industry skills frameworks, role-based competency testing, project management tools and consulting services for greater precision in role and team design.
– IBM Kenexa Predictive Retention: Guards against future talent attrition by helping organizations compile and analyze high-volume workforce data – from exit interviews to real-time SaaS-based employee analysis – to understand risk factors, identify employees likely to leave and build new programs to reduce the risk of attrition.
The new solutions are available and will soon be accessible through the IBM Cloud marketplace, alongside more than 100 other IBM SaaS solutions.
