Chicago, Ill. & Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
SilkRoad technology, inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based talent management solutions, together with The Employee Engagement Group, a leading talent management consulting firm, announced today they have entered into a collaborative partnership, combining The Employee Engagement Group’s world class learning content with SilkRoad’s innovative Internet-based content management and technology solution, Eprise.
The Employee Engagement Group is pleased to introduce The Engagement Learning Library, believed to be the first of its kind in the industry. This Internet-based library, consisting of world class talent management tools, training programs, templates, and related resources, will be made available to clients on an annual subscription basis via SilkRoad’s Eprise platform.
The engagement resources are structured to help companies increase employee engagement to drive business results. The tools are designed from the 10 steps of employee engagement as described in Bob Kelleher’s critically acclaimed book, Louder than Words – 10 Practical Employee Engagement Steps…that Drive Results!
The Engagement Learning Library includes:
- Complete training programs with slideshows, handouts, workbooks and exercises
- Templates for designing your own engagement processes
- The latest engagement research, case studies, statistics and articles
Material can be easily customized to fit a client’s organizational brand and existing look and feel. By subscribing to The Engagement Learning Library, these resources become an extension of a company’s organizational development or human resources department.
“We are thrilled to partner with SilkRoad, a firm we respect immensely,” says The Employee Engagement Group’s CEO, Bob Kelleher. “After getting to know their outstanding people, and experiencing their world class technology, they were our top choice to collaborate on this exciting new product offering.”
“Most consultants help companies decide ‘what’ to do,” says Kelleher. “We go beyond that and teach our clients ‘how to do it’ by offering them access to our extensive library of world class talent management tools. SilkRoad’s technology will enable HR and OD departments to leverage the power of cloud computing to instantly download already prepared training content at a fraction of the cost of developing the content themselves.”
“We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Bob and The Employee Engagement Group,” said Andrew J. “Flip” Filipowski, CEO, SilkRoad technology. “With talent management top of mind for companies everywhere, maximizing productivity of the workforce is critical to the success of any business. The Engagement Learning Library will provide companies with the tools they need to engage employees and increase productivity.”
