Overall Satisfaction with Saba

Saba addressed our need for a replacement for our learning management system that went beyond just providing courses. We wanted a total experience for our Associates that addressed personal and professional development. It is currently our Learning and Performance system across the organization.
  • The social collaboration aspects of the tool were unparalleled to any other we looked at. It has lead to us transitioning our intranet onto it as well.
  • Unlike other platforms they put learning at the core of all they do, and that was something we wanted to help create a culture of personal development.
  • Saba has so much built in flexibility that sometimes it can be overwhelming. If you bring on new folks after implementation, a basics course or more best practice for getting started documentation would be helpful.
  • Compensation module is still in early stages. They are on the right track but for larger companies with complicated hierarchy simple getting started tools would be helpful.
  • Saba has allowed us to have company goals at the senior executive level that cascade down to departments. This has increased visibility on how what an associate does relates to results.
  • Saba recognition tools allow us to recognize associate contributions across teams and locations in a way we never had before. This has benefited engagement immensely and it pulls directly into reviews when its time so managers can see the whole year better.
Each of the other platforms we used or researched had their own specialities. Some were excellent for specific uses. We wanted a tool that had a more comprehensive package though with performance, compensation and succession planning. This way the tool could grow with us. Given the expanded HR functions we still wanted learning at the core, though, and Saba does that. The peer learning tools were far better than others we looked into.
I truly believe you get out of Saba what you put into it. Have a plan and they will help you make it happen. They were great providing best practice advice when we needed it and helping us get buy-in for features along the way.
