Newly combined learning, performance, and engagement expertise and powerful customer experience drive Saba into leading position
Redwood Shores, CA — November 8, 2017 — Saba , a leading provider of people-centric talent management solutions, today announced it has been named a leader in the Talent Management Technology Value Matrix 2017, a new report from Nucleus Research. Following the company’s acquisition of Halogen Software earlier this year, Saba now delivers end-to-end specialization at the critical intersection of employee development, performance, and engagement.
“Saba is an excellent example of marrying two areas of talent management and people development that go hand-in-hand – learning and performance,” said Brent Skinner, lead author of the report and Principal Analyst covering Human Capital Management for Nucleus Research. “Long considered one of the best vendors for learning and development, Saba now has greater depth and a broadened customer base in performance management via Halogen’s renowned expertise in that category. We believe Saba is on a very positive forward trajectory with this new combination, and have accordingly placed Saba squarely in our Leader quadrant for Talent Management.”
The Nucleus Research report assesses talent management vendors on solution usability and functionality, as well as future strategic direction. Nucleus asserts that specialization across key areas of talent management will drive vendor success and that buyers are best served by suites with deep functionality that addresses their most pressing strategic talent priorities, particularly in the area of ongoing employee development, performance and engagement.
Saba’s leap forward into the Leader Quadrant further validates the positive response Saba has seen from customers for its focus on advancing talent management and transforming the employee experience, as well as its continued commitment to customer success and satisfaction.
“The Nucleus report confirms what we’ve known since Saba and Halogen came together,” said Tim Mulligan, CHRO at Vulcan Inc. “The combined strength and expertise across employee development and performance is why Vulcan chose Saba as our talent management provider, and we’re confident that their focus on innovation and customer experience will continue to help us deliver on the new expectations of our employees and drive continued success for our business through the power of our people.”
