SkillSoft, a leading SaaS provider of e-learning and performance support solutions for global enterprises, government, education and small to medium-sized businesses, has created two webinars with a focus on helping organizations successfully navigate today's complex business landscape and formulate a strategic and integrated view of talent management.

Human capital is a key asset that organizations rely on to maintain a competitive position in the marketplace. To attract and retain employees, organizations need a talent management strategy with learning as the foundation. By creating and executing a business-relevant Integrated Talent Management Strategy, organizations will get the right solutions delivered and the right business intelligence needed to help respond to talent needs in an adaptable, agile way.

"The connection between an organization's talent and outstanding business performance is indisputable. How to maximize the engagement, performance and potential of employees to maximize competitiveness drives many talent management strategies," said John Ambrose, senior vice president, strategy, corporate development and emerging business, SkillSoft. "Learning content in the human capital management process is what matters the most. That's what gives employees the resource needed to guide behavioral change. Simply identifying gaps through a talent management process is not enough the gaps need to be filled with the content employees require to round out their job-specific skillsets."
