Danville, Calif. (PRWEB) August 1, 2005
Knowledge Infusion, a strategic consulting organization dedicated to helping organizations realize the value of HCM technologies, today announced that industry-leading companies including Commerce Bank, KLA-Tencor, Premera Blue Cross, and Shaw Industries are now leveraging its services. Knowledge Infusion is helping these customers plan, select, and optimize learning and performance solutions to drive overall business performance. The recent customer wins demonstrate Knowledge InfusionÂs growing presence in the Workforce Performance Management technology market.
ÂKnowledge Infusion helped us navigate the vast array of vendors and solutions available on the market, enabling us to quickly consolidate and prioritize our learning technology needs,Â said Danny Crutchfield, Director of Corporate Training and Organizational Development at Shaw Industries. ÂWith their unmatched knowledge of the market and industry best practices, we have saved both time and money in the selection of an LMS -- a key enabler of our four-year plan to transform the learning function into a profit center.Â
Knowledge Infusion helps organizations fully maximize the performance of the workforce in direct and measurable support of business goals through its recently announced HCM StrategyMap service. HCM StrategyMap provides organizations with a 1000-day plan to develop an integrated Workforce Performance Management strategy linking learning, performance, succession, career, and competency management. To execute on these blueprints, Knowledge Infusion helps organizations break down the departmental, functional, and technical barriers that often exist between HR and Learning teams.
"There is a clear trend toward convergence between learning management and employee performance management systems today," said Josh Bersin, CEO Bersin & Associates, a leading research firm focused on enterprise learning. "This convergence is the essence of Talent Management. The biggest challenges companies face, however, is the need to bring HR and Learning managers together to build the processes and programs which make this convergence a reality."
Knowledge Infusion is the only consulting organization in its space with expertise in both Learning and HR processes and technologies that can help companies make intelligent, holistic HCM technology decisions to build comprehensive talent management solutions.
ÂLearning and HR departments are under tremendous pressure to provide better insight into the engine that fuels top line growth Â their employees,Â says Heidi Spirgi, President of Knowledge Infusion. ÂWith many CEOs and CFOs unsure about the ability of their employees to execute on business initiatives such as entering a new market, HR and training departments have a unique opportunity to add value to their organization by developing innovative ways to manage and cultivate talent.Â
