“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,” said Gabriel Graham, eLearning program manager at Medtronic. “Saba People Cloud was that perfect mix of social and on demand learning solutions. By implementing Saba People Cloud, Medtronic is able to keep the team engaged in their personal learning and development, while also increasing their overall engagement with the entire company.”

“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,” said Rodney Paesler, managing director of Scott Carver. “This ideology makes collaboration and the effective exchange of ideas absolutely critical and underscores why Saba is an ideal partner for our organization. The Saba People Cloud uncovers the diverse character of our individual talents and helps attract projects attuned to our deeper motivations. Saba empowers our employees to further develop their own individual skills and also improves the collective knowledge of our entire organization – two essential elements driving our company’s growth and success.”
