TEDS®, Inc., originator of the only fully integrated Workforce Effectiveness suite addressing enterprise-wide talent management, today announced the release of their white paper addressing enterprise-wide talent management. The white paper entitled TEDS Talent Management: A Comprehensive System Built on Proven Technology, takes a holistic approach to talent and performance management, and provides a timeline of TEDS’ sixteen years of experience.
The key concepts from the white paper were discussed at the TEDS Talent Management Summit earlier this month. Key leaders in the talent management industry convened on Wednesday, August 8 at the summit sponsored by TEDS, Inc. and hosted by Steelcase University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The purpose of the summit was to outline strategic initiatives aimed at improving enterprise-wide workforce effectiveness, and it was the first summit of its kind.
“TEDS is delighted to provide this summit for select colleagues interested in sharpening their organizations’ competitive edge,” said Joseph F.

It aligns business objectives with all aspects of the talent lifecycle, which is a philosophy TEDS has been offering to corporations longer than any anyone else in the industry.”
The summit provided the framework for an integrated application of valuable industry practices including management of learning, performance, compliance, competencies, recruiting and succession. “When these fundamental techniques align with corporate strategic initiatives, the results drive notable business success”, added Ellis. “The prevalent motivator with many senior executives is the money saved and revenue generated by having this type of initiative in place.”
