Industry-Leading Innovations Span Core HR, Talent Acquisition and Talent Development

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions, announced first quarter innovations spanning its entire suite of integrated, employee-centered Core HR, Talent Acquisition and Talent Development software solutions.

"Our first quarter enhancements address everything from the rising tide of temporary workers to impending healthcare reform requirements and the growing need for custom eLearning content," said Flip Filipowski, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer at SilkRoad. "We recognize that workforce challenges evolve daily, so we are constantly updating our Life Suite® offerings to meet our clients' needs."

Highlights from the Quarter:

Core HR - Enhancements to SilkRoad's HeartBeat® HRIS software brought small and mid-market companies more automated access to benefits administration. HeartBeat's benefits administration and open enrollment functionalities support a wide range of U.S. benefit plans and eligibility criteria, offering HR managers unmatched configurability and cost savings.

Additionally, a partnership with HR survey/analytics authority Nobscot Corporation now allows clients of SilkRoad's RedCarpet® employee onboarding software to identify and address pain points in their recruiting and onboarding processes. This integration lends clients a competitive edge as they work to reduce employee acquisition costs.

Talent Development - Enhancements to SilkRoad's WingSpan® performance management software now allow employers to track the performance of a growing contingent workforce using project-based reviews.

Additionally, a new partnership with OpenSesame affords customers of SilkRoad's GreenLight® learning management system access to an eLearning content marketplace including more than 1,200 downloadable courses. To cater to SilkRoad's growing roster of international clients, GreenLight is now available in seven languages: English, French Canadian, French, German, Spanish, simplified Chinese and Japanese. The software also allows clients to add additional languages on demand.
