Learning & Talent

The biggest challenge in the Enterprise today is maximizing the most productivity of their people. People come to work each day seeking knowledge on how to do their job.

The challenge is to ensure they have the skills and the knowhow to be productive. Learning is a big part of the issues related to a productive workforce. Social Learning is where Learning is headed. It is a journey to get there and Aragon Research can help.

Aragon Research analysts have covered Learning and Talent Suite markets for over ten years. We know the business of learning and we also know the critical issues facing enterprises in their quest to engage their workforce.

Social HCM is a new term that focuses on the engagement of people, not the tracking of them. Social Recruiting, Social Performance and Recognition and much more are a core part of our coverage. Most elements in a Talent Suite are being socialized.

We have focused on Learning since our inception (aka Knowledge) and are now doubling down on this coverage area.
