Atkins, VA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
The TEDS Consortium, a dynamic collaborative forum of human capital experts from over a dozen world-class companies, has a new member. The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (OCWTP) was voted into the Consortium following its summer meeting. The meeting, hosted by Boston University Corporate Education Center in Waltham, Massachusetts, was held August 13th and 14th. Voting was completed last week and the official voting results were announced today.
Founded in 1992, the TEDS Consortium is the only organization of its kind. It is dedicated to the continuous innovation and improvement of TEDS’ enterprise-wide talent management solutions. The Consortium plays an essential role in reviewing and upgrading TEDS product functionalities, recommending the creation of new talent management products and services, and accelerating product development. By previewing advances in TEDS talent management products, Consortium members can more effectively plan for upgrades and expansions within their enterprises. However, all organizations that use TEDS benefit from the Consortium's vision and recommendations. The Consortium meets twice a year.
Participants in the summer meeting included Chrysler, Eastman Chemical, Boston University CEC, Dominion, Nortel, Philips Healthcare, Sandia National Laboratories, Verizon and TEDS. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services attended as a guest and candidate for membership.
TEDS President and CEO, Joseph F. “Joe” Ellis welcomed OCWTP to the Consortium. “We are proud to have The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services as our newest member,” he said. “They are on the cutting edge of learning and management for state governmental organizations. Their participation in the Consortium will be of great value in enhancing TEDS products and services for similar governmental agencies across the U.S.”
Accepting his agency’s Consortium membership was Director of the Southwest Ohio Regional Trainer Center, Darren Varnado. “The OCWPT is pleased to join the Consortium,” he said. It is a pleasure to be able to work hand-in-hand with TEDS and all the Consortium members.”
During the final hours of the TEDS Consortium meeting, members assessed the event. Their highlights included: peer sharing of their companies’ challenges and accomplishments in various aspects of talent management; general networking with peers within other companies; reviewing and participation in TEDS’ roadmap for future development including a preview of the next general release - TEDS 9.0; and strategizing future talent development and management needs.
