New Bersin & Associates Research Proves That Organizations That Excel at Social and Informal Learning Outperform Their Peers in Global Talent Development; Details and More to be Unveiled at IMPACT 2012
Bersin & Associates Analysts to Introduce the Agile Model of HR, New Research on Big Data and Talent Analytics, and Deliver New Study Findings in Global Learning, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, HR and Technology
Oakland, CA – March 30, 2012 – Bersin & Associates, the premier research and consulting firm empowering HR organizations to drive bottom-line impact, today announced new research proving that organizations that excel at social networking and informal learning significantly outperform their less sophisticated peers in global talent development. Senior Analyst Janet Clarey will unveil preliminary findings regarding this new High-Impact Learning Organization research as part of her, “Going Global with High-Impact Learning,” at IMPACT 2012: The Business of Talent.
Globalization is now a top priority for large organizations. This new research found that organizations with strong informal learning capabilities, including the adoption and use of social learning tools and the development of a global learning culture, are three times more likely to excel at global talent development than organizations without those competencies. The research suggests that for companies to succeed at building a globally integrated enterprise, they must adopt social and informal learning strategies and solutions. The findings underscore the value of “Building Business Agility through People,” the theme of Bersin & Associates’ fifth annual conference that takes place April 10-13 at the Vinoy® Renaissance® Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg, FL.
“The world of work has changed dramatically,” said Josh Bersin, chief executive officer and president, Bersin & Associates. “People are highly connected, they operate on a global basis, and jobs are far more specialized. These changes have created a whole new management model for companies, one we call ‘The Agile Model of Management.’ This new management model dramatically changes the role of HR, the types of programs and strategies HR develops, and the technologies HR uses to solve problems. At IMPACT 2012, we will demonstrate how HR professionals will drive impact in the new world of work.”
Bersin & Associates analysts will provide a preview of findings from several other recent and soon-to-be published studies, including:
An on-site Demo Center will feature nearly 30 solution providers with technologies and solutions for a variety of areas, including talent acquisition, assessment, recruiting outsourcing, e-learning, learning, global learning, performance management, payroll and benefits administration, rewards and recognition, and leadership development.
