<strong>Mountain View, Calif. &mdash; March 5</strong><br />SumTotal Systems Inc., a provider of learning, performance and talent management solutions, announced that Unified Grocers Inc. selected ResultsOnDemand to combine learning and performance in a single system linked to strategy. Unified Grocers, a retailer-owned wholesale grocery cooperative with approximately 4,000 employees that provides grocery products and services to independent retailers throughout the western United States, was looking for a solution that would ensure development plans and business strategy were linked to address talent gaps.<br /><br />Unified Grocers found that their current paper process was time consuming and could not support its strategic initiatives. They wanted a self-service performance system with direct links to competency models and development plans for each position, all in a single system. An initial pilot program will consist of IS and finance employees because the skills and competency models are more consistent and easy to matrix. The on-demand solution is seen as a low-risk and low-cost solution for the pilot before the program is rolled out company-wide.<br /><br />"We want to increase the capabilities of our human capital," said Thomas Holmberg, business process improvement specialist. "If we see a performance gap related to our strategy, we want the ability to rapidly assign training or coaching. SumTotal provides us with a current snapshot and the process to manage ongoing talent development &mdash; the ability to act on the data and make changes. This is a system in which we can transform competencies to actual business results."<br /><br />"SumTotal&#39;s ResultsOnDemand solution provides the flexibility and robust talent management capabilities needed by companies of all sizes but with the low cost of entry and usability of an on-demand solution," said Nick Rusiniak, director of enterprise sales. "Unified Grocers is taking employee performance to the next level by developing its talent to achieve what the business needs."<br />
