The Transformative Power of Saba People Cloud
Saba introduced the Saba People Cloud totransform the way that people work. By creating a more transparent, better connected and highly collaborative way of working, Saba is empowering an organizations most critical assets - its people - while enabling the social enterprise to be more agile, competitive and responsive to market demands. The product is an open, trusted, cloud-based environment built to engage, develop and inspire all the people in the people network—employees, customers, suppliers and partners.
Key strengths of the Saba People Cloud social enterprise platform include:
The combination of enterprise social, real-time and mobile technologies with modern people processes to transform traditional learning and talent experiences.
A Dynamic People Profile that combines theformal profile, the social profile and analytics to give the user complete insight in their entire people network.
The ability to transform social collaboration by combining activity streams, groups, discussions, intelligent recommendations and Ideas, with social engagementfeatures drawing from the best of gamification, social dynamics and social rewards.
“Today’s perpetually evolving business environment, paired with the rampant adoption of social networks, cloud computing and mobile technologies in the workplace, has brought about the need for a new, people-centric model for driving how work gets done,” said Bobby Yazdani, founder and CEO of Saba. “The majority of legacy systems simply cannot support these types of models; thus the deployment of evolved platforms that put people in the center of the strategy is essential. The Saba People Cloud is built specifically for a new generation of workers – a group that demands flexible mobile solutions and collaborative social technologies. Saba intends to continue evolving our offerings to drive further adoption of the transformative workplace, helping organizations and their employees thrive.”
“We are using the SabaPeople Cloud to accelerate the effectiveness of our team,” said Nyla Reed, founding partner at The Educe Group. “To support our growth, we use the platform to ensure consistent onboarding of new employees so they can drive their own development by knowing the learning that is expected, while also handling HR related activities all in one place. In terms of response times within our organization to client issues, we’ve seen them go from days to minutes in many cases. And we’ve already begun exploring how we’ll make the Saba People Cloud available to our clients, for both individual use and collaboration across companies.”
“To decrease attrition rates of a Generation Y inside sales team, we needed a social solution that more effectively connected our employees, as well as a traditional learning solution to keep them laser-focused on their career development,”
“An empowering sense of belonging to a worthwhile purpose and an overall feeling of teamwork and democracy are key drivers in why employees choose to commit their energy to our organization,”
