IBM on Monday introduced several new software packages and a consulting service aimed at helping businesses use Big Data and analytics to better manage their workforces.
The software is all cloud-based, while the new Talent and Change consulting practice will connect HR managers with subject matter experts in workforce optimization, retention, and recruiting.
“Most successful organizations already view people as their most important differentiator in the market, yet many struggle to unlock the true potential of their workforce” said Debbie Landers, general manager for Smarter Workforce and Kenexa at IBM.
“The new offerings give clients a more holistic, data-driven approach that uses workforce science to predict the best fit for an individual or team across a number of personal and organizational traits,” said Landers, in a statement.
The software modules include:
IBM Kenexa Predictive Hiring: Gives business leaders access to workforce analytics and behavioral assessments to understand individual, job, team and organizational traits that define top performers. These dynamic profiles help ensure the right candidates are hired and effectively deployed.
IBM Kenexa Workforce Readiness: Enables clients to assess current workforce readiness to address existing and emerging business demands. It combines industry skills frameworks, role-based competency testing, project management tools and consulting services for greater precision in role and team design.
IBM Kenexa Predictive Retention: Guards against future talent attrition by helping organizations compile and analyze high-volume workforce data – from exit interviews to real-time SaaS-based employee analysis – to understand risk factors, identify employees likely to leave and build new programs to reduce the risk of attrition.
