REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – January 25th, 2016Saba, a global leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced it has been selected by Brandon Hall Group for Best Advance in Career Management or Planning Technology. Saba’s Succession@Work product was recognized for its innovative career planning capabilities that leverage machine learning and predictive analytics to automatically extrapolate and recommend career paths, assemble the right learning sequences, competency, and skill goals, and estimate time frames to achieve advancement opportunities within and beyond current roles.
