August 30, 2022

Leaders in the talent management space include Cegid, Cornerstone OnDemand, SAP SuccessFactors and SumTotal Systems.

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The uncertain work landscape has caused many dynamic shifts for the talent management space over the past 12 months as companies are forced to make layoffs and freeze hiring in order to remain lean.

“Nucleus is seeing increased acquisitions and partnerships, along with expanded investments in learning functionality,” said Research Manager Evelyn McMullen. “Vendors that primarily focus on learning management systems have shifted their approach to concentrate more on providing learning experience platforms to better align with changing customer needs and the growing trend of employee experience-specific functionality.”

In order to keep pace with the changing market conditions, leading vendors are investing in automated capabilities that give HR staff and managers time to improve strategies and respond to changing market conditions. Vendors are also prioritizing investment in analytics that help organizations draw actionable insights on employee sentiment, flight risk, learning, performance, and how it all ties into development, succession, and retention.
