    AMC Entertainment Improves Talent Selection

    Keith Wiedenkeller, senior vice president and chief people officer for AMC Entertainment, discusses at IBM Connect 2014 how his company has created a Smarter Workforce.
 

At its Connect 2014 conference in Orlando, Fla., IBM announced a software-as-service (SaaS)-based IBM Kenexa Talent Suite that enables chief human resources officers (CHROs) and C-suite executives to gain insights into the deluge of data created every day by their workforce. The new suite is the latest solution IBM has generated from its 2012 $1.3 billion acquisition of Kenexa, which uses big data analytics to help companies find qualified job candidates and increase employee retention. Using this new suite, organizations can now streamline, modernize and add precision to hiring practices; increase workforce productivity; and connect employees in ways that impact business results, Big Blue said. With the IBM Kenexa Talent Suite, human resource (HR) professionals can look at large volumes of employee data—such as work experience, social engagement, skills development and individual traits—to identify the qualities that make top performers successful. Organizations and teams can then use those models to pursue candidates through additional targeted social marketing on social recruiting sites, where job seekers matching the profile are automatically connected with opportunities matching their skills.
