UpMo Expands Its Social Talent Engine, Helping Companies Reduce Attrition
Latest Release of Job-Matching Technology Taps Social Recommendations and Entire Skill Set
March 27, 2012 --
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- UpMo, the leader in social talent management, today announced additions to the UpMo solution that allow companies to redefine internal mobility and further reduce attrition. The latest release of its Social Talent Engine now features expanded job-matching technology that present employees with 'jobs I haven't thought of' based on their full career history and skill set, using peer social recommendations to widen the lattice.
"Organizations lack visibility into their talents' skills and desires, and employees are blind to existing opportunities," said Rob Garcia, vice president of product at UpMo. "Our algorithms expand the universe of opportunity for employees, allowing them to find projects and roles that will increase their chances of landing their dream job, and ultimately reducing the likelihood that employees will leave."
Most voluntary attrition occurs because employees perceive that they cannot fulfill career aspirations with current employers. Most companies do have a broad set of opportunities to offer, but they're unable to personalize and recommend those opportunities to employees based on skill sets, experiences and career dreams. Existing HR ERP tools are good for backend data, but they don't encourage talent collaboration and can actually cause employees to disengage.
UpMo's Social Talent Engine engages employees by analyzing their career experiences and matching them with relevant internal projects and full-time jobs. Such matching, in turn, creates long-term benefits and drives employee loyalty by uncovering connections between what employees want and companies need, thus empowering the social enterprise.
Successful moves in an organization are no longer limited to promotions, or to typical lateral leaps that help employees further develop the same skills they already have. A mashup of passions and career goals are what often lead employees to dream jobs. By providing enterprises and their employees with an intuitive and intelligent internal career mobility solution, UpMo enables a more engaged, motivated and productive workforce.
