SilkRoad Client Quality Health Strategies Wins Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award

Honored for Best Advance in an Integrated Talent Management Platform

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - December 14, 2015) - SilkRoad (, a global leader in cloud-based talent management solutions, is proud to congratulate Quality Health Strategies (QHS) on winning a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold Award for excellence in the Best Advance in an Integrated Talent Management Platform category. The Excellence Awards recognize the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results.

QHS focuses on transforming health systems. When transformation also became the focal point for an internal initiative, executives selected the SilkRoad Life Suite integrated talent management solution. Highlights of the integration include:

  • Simplified benefits enrollment and management by synchronizing with the main SilkRoad database and a partner application
  • Eliminated large personnel filing cabinets by consolidating all HR data into a single database and synchronizing it across all modules
  • Earned a big win during a major International Standards Organization (ISO) audit for recertification by providing documented proof of completed training

"We wanted to move to a new process with our people tools. Instead of managing things in little standalone systems, our goal was utilizing technology that covers the employee spectrum from new hire to retirement to create a connected people lifecycle," said Deb Keller, vice president human resources at QHS. "SilkRoad's new HRMS offered the strongest system of record as well as a single sign-on in the new Talent Portal. Since an HRMS is the heart of strategic talent management, SilkRoad was a clear choice and this award further validates that decision."

Award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent and senior industry experts, as well as Brandon Hall group senior analysts and executive leadership.

"Our award winners are the most visionary and innovative developers of HCM technology solutions that move organizations forward in serving employees, customers and investors," said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, who runs the awards program. "I think everyone can learn from the achievements of our award recipients."

Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group's HCM Excellence Conference January 27-29, 2016, at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in the more than 20 breakout sessions during the 2½-day conference.
