NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced the availability of Infor Learning Optimization, a new addition to the Infor Talent Management suite. Infor's new Learning Optimization tool is designed to help employees and managers achieve top performance by delivering personalized learning powered by science and increase employees' unique behavioral alignments to their current and future roles. Infor's new Learning Optimization tool is also designed to help managers identify areas that need to be improved upon and automatically get recommended learning activities (books, courses, personalized coaching) for the entire team.

Infor Talent Management is designed to help enable organizations to keep critical talent engaged and motivated, while simultaneously supporting and aligning to strategic business goals. With Infor's new Learning Optimization tool, organizations can scientifically match employees with learning opportunities, offering personalized learning and coaching at the individual level, to help resolve behavioral opportunities. This individualized learning is meant to help employees feel more connected to their jobs and ultimately help reduce attrition and flight risk.

Infor Talent Management is also designed to help optimize strategic talent processes in a single solution by leveraging Infor Talent Science®. Infor Talent Management enables users to drive talent initiatives by assessing employees' qualifications and behavioral fits to current and future roles, including "best fit" roles across the organization, helping organizations to identify, hire, develop, reward, and retain the best candidates and employees.

"Indiscriminate learning can decrease performance, and limit employee growth and potential. Infor understands that employees, at any level, need personalized learning to become top performers, and by providing managers with insights and tools to capitalize on employees' behavioral strengths and characteristics, can help them directly impact success and influence business goals," said Charles Cagle, senior vice president, HCM Development, Strategy, & Operations, Infor.
