New Saba Cloud Summer Release Gives Companies the Tools to Reboot Their Broken Performance Review Processes

Talent Management Software Helps Make Everyday Development and Feedback Easy

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. - July 15, 2015 - Saba, a global leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced its Saba Cloud Summer Release, tackling one of the biggest challenges in delivering employee engagement: the employee performance review process.

In its annual survey on the Talent Management market, Bersin by Deloitte found that 58% of HR leaders feel that their current employee performance management process is not an effective use of time. Further, only 8% of companies believe that their performance process is effective in driving business value. Worse yet, from an employee perspective, the typical annual review process is viewed as more of a disincentive than a benefit.

In fact, according to the Global Workforce Leadership Survey by Saba and, about one-third of US employees said they were looking to leave their jobs with "lack of development" being the number one reason cited. Ideally, employee development should include continuous performance reviews and coaching, easy access to courses and content, and visibility into career opportunities.

The Saba Cloud Summer Release includes five new areas of functionality that can arm HR leaders with the tools they need to reimagine their performance and development processes and power a more personalized, daily approach to skill building and feedback.

Performance@Work: Cultivate leadership with continuous, peer-based reviews and coaching

Learning@Work: Personalized, on-the-fly development empowers shorter time to impact

All of this functionality is available today within the latest release of Saba Cloud. For more information on how Saba Cloud could help your organization reboot its performance and engagement with better, continuous development, click
