Real Stories: 4 Unique Ways to Leverage Talent Management

As a company grows, so does its talent management needs. And while every business has its own unique performance goals, fostering an environment where employees can grow and develop over time is a valuable aim for any company.

Here at Saba, we pride ourselves on our ability to yield incredible business results across a wide variety of industries. From technology to professional services, here's how four real businesses use Saba solutions to power their talent management programs.

SentriLock boosts retention with a "Career GPS"

SentriLock is the leading electronic lockbox manufacturer and service provider supporting the real estate industry and other emerging markets. Rapidly growing, but seeing employee turnover that was higher than the industry average, SentriLock needed a way to improve employee retention, develop employees for their next positions and build a sustainable future-ready organization.

With the help of Saba, they were able to build "Google Maps" for their employees' careers by leveraging the powerful job description, performance, e-Learning and talent search capabilities of Saba TalentSpace. Now, they're "learning and development has never been better."

Northern Tool + Equipment creates a culture of feedback

Northern Tool + Equipment is a specialty retailer in the hospitality industry with 2,500 employees in 20 states. The company was rapidly growing and knew it needed a talent development platform that could meet them "where they were" and grow with their workforce over time.

Today, the company is using Saba to create a culture of ongoing feedback within Northern Tool. They've swapped out the antiquated annual performance review for an ongoing coaching process that includes regular check-ins, multi-directional feedback, and integrated development - all of which can be viewed, measured and acted upon by leaders.

Symmons puts continuous development front & center

Symmons Industries is a premier manufacturer of commercial and residential plumbing products. As an organization with a varied range of "talent pools," Symmons realized that they needed help aligning these groups' unique learning and development needs to the business' overall goals.

Thanks to Saba, Symmons was able to implement a hyper-connected talent development environment that includes robust learning, performance and measurement capabilities. This has led to the creation of a continuous development culture that empowers its people to learn new skills and grow their career, while also helping them adapt to changing market needs and pressures.

JMT fills necessary skill gaps in a specialized field

JMT (Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson) provides consulting services to a varied client base of public and private entities across the United States. This includes planning, design and construction management services for many major award-winning projects.

JMT relies on a highly skilled STEM-based workforce, and to fuel growth and meet changing client demands, the company knew it needed to develop from within to fill key skills gaps. Using Saba TalentSpace, the HR team has adopted a new talent management approach that promotes continuous feedback and development. Now, TalentSpace is one of the strongest aspects of JMT's learning and development programs - and has proven to be a key strategic partner in the firm's success.
