“A global HR solution from the get-go”

The latest Bersin Solutions Provider report on Sage People


Harvey Mackay once said “a great accomplishment shouldn’t be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward,” and this is the way we feel following our positive review in Bersin by Deloitte’s 2014 industry study.

The Talent Management Systems report reviews the trends in integrated talent management solutions and the solution providers that offer them, including Sage People. It provides an in-depth product overview covering capabilities and we are very proud to be seen as a “young, growing company distinctive for several reasons”.

In fact, the Bersin report is not alone in its focus on HRMS and talent management.

A global survey conducted by ManpowerGroup featuring 38,000 employers, reveals how talent shortages are impacting more than half – 54 per cent – of all organizations. “Lack of talent” is cited globally as impacting the ability to serve clients to a high or medium degree, highlighting how talent management can be a key detriment to business success.

The good news is almost half of respondents – 45 per cent – expect to increase spending on talent management initiatives. Meaning senior leaders and HR professionals are acknowledging the “Human Age”, and the need to grow and focus on talent investment.

As we’ve discussed before, this is a complete business shift from the focus throughout the economic downturn. As a result many HR teams are finding themselves playing catch up and so it’s no surprise that Talent Management Solutions comprise the most rapidly growing area with Human Capital Management (HCM).

“[Sage People] entered the market with a full-blown HRIS system, relatively uncommon these days—and with it, the integrated capabilities to manage talent, spanning the range of functions conducted by an HR team in the course of their duties.”

“With the broad extent of the Force.com infrastructure support (from Salesforce.com), Sage People has a solid platform upon which to build its future growth, allowing it to focus on increased sophistication and depth in its product offerings”

Many thanks to Bersin by Deloitte and as a successful young, growing company, we say the only way is up!

Wait - don't go!
