6 Benefits of Integrating HR, Talent, & Learning Management Systems

• 3 min read

The HR landscape is complex – full of multiple systems that cover everything from recruiting new talent to payroll. All of this software can create a major headache when you need to connect that important data together.

But all is not lost! Integrations are quickly becoming essential for every company’s tech stack and, thanks to the new opportunities brought about by Cloud technologies, the integration landscape has changed significantly.

In this post, guest writer, David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, dives into the 6 major benefits of integrating HR systems so you can focus on the important stuff.

Whilst we talk in business about Human Resources as if it’s a singular function, in reality, of course, it’s much more complex.

HR is an aggregated area of focus and an aggregation of people, processes, and systems that capture, manage, and report a very diverse set of different things.

Integration between HR-related systems has been a major bugbear for companies, and with the need for more integrated processes and HR analytics, that problem is getting more pressing.

With many of these systems moving to the Cloud, this changes the integration landscape significantly. For many companies, their learning, recruiting, or performance system will already be in the Cloud.

The Cloud is already the dominant deployment approach for new talent and internal & external training, and core HR is now following as well. Understanding how integration is going to work in the Cloud is critical.

Integrating these disparate HR, talent, and learning systems brings many benefits, such as:

1. Clearer links and better continuity between the individual talent elements.

2. Increased automation of talent processes as a whole, and improved efficiency of operations.

3. Improved user experience, lower learning curve and higher adoption throughout the talent lifecycle.

4. Reduced duplication, more accurate talent data and ease of sharing talent data (currently seen as poor in most organisations).

5. Better management information and analytics.

6. Improved operational performance and ROI from the HR function.


These benefits in action

Cineplex is a great example of a company that has seen the results of these benefits first hand.

The movie theatre giant has a reputation for hiring great talent and nurturing their popcorn scoopers and theatre cleaners into senior roles like managers of operations and field trainers.

When Docebo stepped in, successes such as these became easier to initiate and manage.

The Docebo Learning Platform is integrated with Cineplex’s Human Resources Information System (HRIS), so when a new hire is added into the HRIS they’re also added to Docebo.

“Employees engage with the Cineplex Academy early and often,” says Allison Dell, Director of Learning & Development at Cineplex.

Internal training content is largely created and assigned based on roles and associated tasks and, as a result, much of the e-learning material delivered through Docebo is scenario-based.

Cineplex also takes advantage of microlearning, providing information that is bite-sized and easily digested by its often young learner audience (the average age of a Cineplex Academy learner is 24).

Knowing these audience demographics and the working environment, delivering mobile learning through Docebo is another extremely important aspect of Cineplex’s learning delivery strategy.

When tracking results, the most business-critical metrics Cineplex is attributing to its learning programs are its talent retention rate and its increasing success in promoting from within.

Cineplex has seen a 95% retention of promoted top talent, which it credits in large part to its employee development programs that encourage career path planning.

“This strategy has helped us to begin building the next generation of leaders within the company.”
