Plateau to Host Webinar on Business Benefits of Aligning Employee Development With Talent Management Initiatives

Aberdeen Group Research Director Kevin Martin to Lead Discussion on Integrating Learning Strategy With Business Strategy

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - Plateau Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class SaaS solutions for talent management, today announced that it will host a free Webinar titled, "Learning: Core to Talent Management at Best-in-Class Organizations," on Tuesday, December 15, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. EST. The Webinar will feature Aberdeen Group's Human Capital Management Research Director Kevin Martin, discussing how learning-centric talent management initiatives are enabling Best-in-Class organizations to not only align their workforce with organizational objectives, but also improve key operational metrics.

According to recent Aberdeen Group research, one of the most significant differentiators between Best-in-Class organizations -- those with the top workforce compliance rates, employee performance, workforce retention, and employee time to productivity -- and other companies is how well those organizations align employee development with business objectives and integrate learning with talent management strategies. Aberdeen research shows that nearly 75 percent of Best-in-Class organizations have integrated their learning strategy with their organization's overall business strategy. More than 50 percent have also integrated employee development initiatives with their corporate talent management.

During this one Webinar, Martin will highlight Aberdeen's findings and discuss the key role learning plays talent management success. Martin will explain how tight integration between learning, talent management and business strategy is enabling organizations to achieve Best-in-Class status, and will outline steps attendees can take to align their own organization's initiatives. Webinar attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Aberdeen's recent Analyst Insight, "Plateau: Bridging the Divide between Learning and Talent Management."
