Oakland, Calif. — March 30
Bersin & Associates, an HR research and consulting firm, announced new research proving that organizations that excel at social networking and informal learning significantly outperform their peers in global talent development.
Senior Analyst Janet Clarey will unveil preliminary findings regarding this new research as part of her “Going Global with High-Impact Learning,” at IMPACT 2012: The Business of Talent.
The research found that organizations with strong informal learning capabilities, including the adoption and use of social learning tools and the development of a global learning culture, are three times more likely to excel at global talent development than organizations without those competencies.
The research suggests that for companies to succeed at building a globally integrated enterprise, they must adopt social and informal learning strategies. The findings underscore the value of “Building Business Agility through People,” the theme of Bersin & Associates’ fifth annual conference that takes place April 10-13 at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Fla.
