Showcasing how to deliver employee experiences that drive growth and performance at UNLEASH World


October 22, 2019, Paris, FRANCE – UNLEASH World Stand #110 – Saba Software announced today it is been named as a Strategic Challenger in the Fosway 9-Grid for Talent Management. This placement recognizes Saba’s capability to meet the needs of complex enterprise-scale global customers with solutions that transform talent and drive growth, innovation and value for their businesses.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, commented, “Saba’s position as a Strategic Challenger in the 2019 9-Grid reflects its additional capabilities to deliver across the full talent lifecycle. With the acquisition of Lumesse, Saba has significantly enhanced its presence and capabilities in Europe, as well as gaining an enterprise capability for talent acquisition and further strengthening its core talent and HR credentials.”

Saba’s hyper-connected approach to talent management delivers a connected, personalized talent experience designed to help organizations engage and inspire their people in all the moments that matter.

  • Attract, hire and onboard future stars – Find and attract top talent for critical roles. Then elevate their onboarding with a tailored development and coaching plan that drives performance from day one.
  • Guide people to develop their own skills – Motivate people with personalized, just-in-time development experiences. Prescribe learning in the moment of need and give them the autonomy to explore and grow on their own.
  • Inspire better performance – Create a high-performance culture through ongoing coaching, feedback and development to enable employees to achieve their goals.
  • Understand the pulse of employee engagement – Better understand what motivates employees, connect everyone, and recognize people in all the ways that matter.

“We wanted to do more with our performance and talent management approach. We have always had a big learning culture, but what we haven’t had is a solution that could truly connect that to performance outcomes,” said Roger Mason, Head of Learning and Development, Reed Specialist Recruitment. “Saba, for us, is a platform where can connect and manage everything to do with the talent experience centrally, for thousands of people across the business – while enjoying the benefits of aligned learning.”

A global leader in talent

Saba’s performance, growth, customer advocacy and impact in Europe also recently earned the company recognition in two other major Fosway 9-Grid reports in 2019. Saba is named a Strategic Challenger in the Fosway 9-Grid for Talent Acquisition for its robust talent acquisition capabilities that address the complex recruiting challenges of global enterprise customers; and earned Strategic Leader placement in the Fosway 9-Grid for Learning Systems based on its breadth and depth of learning capabilities, addressing sophisticated needs of organizations and the personalized development experiences that enable performance and growth for learners.
