DENVER, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TwentyEighty, Inc., one of the largest modern workforce learning and performance improvement companies in the world, strengthened its portfolio of solutions and services with the addition of talent analytics from TwentyEighty. Businesses will now be able to take advantage of one of the deepest collections of insights on human traits that will help leaders understand what drives individual performance in their workforce.
Talent analytics enhances the ability of business leaders to better understand the strengths of their teams in terms of leadership, sales performance, project management and other areas within the business. By asking a series of scientifically derived questions, talent analytics enables companies to identify, select and develop the best talent for their business, then creates a detailed report that outlines a customized development path individuals can take to improve performance.
TwentyEighty is one of the only companies that uses talent assessments for both selecting and developing talent. TwentyEighty acquired talent analytics, formerly known as Kenexa Insights, from IBM.
"Talent analytics is a perfect addition to the TwentyEighty portfolio of workforce improvement solutions and will allow us to bring even greater value to our clients as we partner with them to make their workforces great," said Troy Kanter, CEO of TwentyEighty. "We believe this offering can help us add further measuring capabilities across our entire portfolio of solutions and that our customers can use it to drive success."
Based on more than 30 years of behavioral science-based research, talent analytics includes some of the richest intellectual property in the industry for selection and development of talent. By understanding what drives human performance, companies can determine leadership and performance gaps within their teams, and then build up those areas through additional learning and development, and strengthen the workforce through recruitment.
TwentyEighty plans to incorporate talent analytics into its industry-leading portfolio of workforce performance improvement solutions, creating unique product offerings that combine the science of human behavior with proven performance improvement strategies to generate results.
"The addition of talent analytics to everything we do improves what we can provide businesses in terms of how to better understand their talent and drive performance," said Russ Becker, President and General Manager of The Forum Corporation, a TwentyEighty company, who will lead implementation of talent analytics across TwentyEighty. "More and more, customers are looking to us to help them drive results, and talent analytics lays the groundwork for businesses to tailor training and development programs to maximize their existing talent and improve performance, both individually and as an organization."
"Data-driven human talent analytics enables an organization to understand factors critical to why people are successful in their work," said Mike Wirth, vice president of talent analytics at TwentyEighty. "Guesswork and ideas turn into intentional people-centered strategies so companies can predictively improve business performance."
