Plateau Unveils First Phase of Learning Resource Center

Leading Learning Management Provider Offers Free Access to Whitepapers, Learning and Training Content, and Webinars

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - March 6, 2009) - Plateau Systems, a leading provider of talent management software, services and solutions, today launched the Plateau Learning Resource Center, a dedicated, informational microsite that provides valuable materials and resources -- free of charge -- to individuals and organizations looking to defend, extend and maximize their investments in training and development during the current economic downturn.

"With current business conditions forcing organizations to cut costs and slash budgets, we are seeing tremendous demand for current, relevant information, best practice case-studies and proof-points that show how learning and training initiatives are driving real value and helping organizations do more with less," said Jeff Kristick, senior vice president of marketing at Plateau Systems. "By providing access to useful, continually updated information, case studies and video testimonials from leading organizations like AstraZeneca, Yahoo!, Irish Life and Permanent and Zions Bancorporation through Plateau's Learning Resource Center, our goal is to help organizations make the right business decisions about their training and development strategy and investments."

During its inaugural phase, the Learning Resource Center will provide introductory information and resources geared towards helping organizations identify, prioritize and implement learning management initiatives and programs that will yield immediate business value. In addition to accessing whitepapers, news articles and reports, product demonstrations, best practices tips, datasheets and customer videos and case studies, Plateau Learning Resource Center visitors can register to attend online events including next week's webinar titled Top 5 Ways to Protect your Training and Development Budget in 2009. During this free webinar, Forrester analyst Claire Schooley will provide guidance on how organizations can leverage their training and development investments today to identify critical skills, positions, employees and initiatives within the organization. She will also discuss how aligning employee skills with the critical needs of the business can help organizations maximize employee productivity and performance to achieve both their immediate and long-term business goals.

Plateau's Learning Resource Center is an evolving, dynamic resource site that will be updated and refreshed continuously. The site, which can be accessed immediately, aims to provide useful, up-to-date information and we welcome any comments and suggestions you might have.
