(PR Newswire) -- Bersin & Associates announced new research proving that organizations that excel at social networking and informal learning significantly outperform their less sophisticated peers in global talent development.

This new research found that organizations with strong informal learning capabilities, including the adoption and use of social learning tools and the development of a global learning culture, are three times more likely to excel at global talent development than organizations without those competencies. The research suggests that for companies to succeed at building a globally integrated enterprise, they must adopt social and informal learning strategies and solutions.
