Achievers

Achievers is well suited as a rewards and recognition platform - which is what it was designed for. It's less appropriate for a company intranet to share files and documents with one another. Allowing users to do both on one platform would be a great solution for bridging the gap between corporate communication and rewards.

Saba

We feel as the Saba LMS is great for anyone that has their own content creators or utilize 3rd parties for content. It can even function as an LRS, HRMS, LMS, as has other vast options. It is great for those that want to condense systems into one, however anyone that wants a stand-alone LMS, it can function as this, but works better with direct ties to HRIS.

Cons

  • Relevance of rewards catalog
  • Exchange rate of catalog items
  • Would be nice to see deeper integration with company intranets
Michael Whatley profile photo
  • The administrative side of Saba is extremely complex and is a lot for a single saba administrator to manage
  • There are many click paths for users to complete simple functions like signing up for e-learning or editing a goal
  • The succession planning module is limited and does not allow for much flexibility to create custom 9-block grids or integrated dashboards

Saba was extremely similar to Cornerstone, but we decided to go with Saba because of the cost of implementation and the integration with job competencies.

  • Saba has helped us automate our performance review process - everything used to be submitted to excel documents before we implemented saba.
  • Saba has helped us assign and track learning, before implementation we did not even have an LMS
  • Saba has served as the foundation for our first recognition program through the use of impressions
