27 Sep 2011
September 27, 2011 (Brussels, BE, Jacksonville, FL) – NorthgateArinso (NGA) announced today the euHReka Inclusion Framework, a major new addition to its award-winning HR solution, euHReka, that will give companies secure, easy and seamless access to third-party HR and talent resources.

The euHReka Inclusion Framework will provide a standard, reliable gateway between euHReka and critical HR resources such as e-learning content, salary market data, benefits programs, job boards and professional social networking sites. The Inclusion Framework facilitates the setup of bidirectional connections for euHReka customers and partners.

As a result, the euHReka Inclusion Framework will help navigate HR professionals in their application sourcing journey by establishing a trusted and integrated partner ecosystem, based on a single, global, enterprise-class HR platform. Currently over 80 companies and 800,000 employees rely on euHReka for global HR services in 100 countries.

NGA’s first partner in the new euHReka Inclusion Framework is SkillSoft, a leader in e-learning and performance support solutions. The partnership with SkillSoft allows euHReka customers to have seamless access to SkillSoft's world class digital learning resources through euHReka Workspace, including to SkillSoft's courseware bundles and Books24 Custom Library.

Available courses have been selected and assembled based on leading best business practices from SkillSoft, and will offer companies new to e-learning a strong foundation from which to customize their learning needs. The platform offers the flexibility to operate changes and substitutions to the pre-selected courses or customized collections to ensure the e-learning solutions meet customer needs.

Eric Delafortrie, Director Strategy & Development euHReka, at NGA said, “We believe the euHReka Inclusion Framework will offer customers a game-changing way to tap into some of the most exciting, transformational HR tools in the industry. Our partnership with SkillSoft is a great example of how our platform-as-a-service capabilities can provide companies a single, consistent point of access to critical HR services and resources – whether it’s in one or in one hundred countries around the world.”

Kevin Young, General Manager, SkillSoft EMEA adds: “By extending the level of our partnership with NorthgateArinso to include selected SkillSoft learning assets within the euHReka environment, we can demonstrate the value of having content fully integrated into learning platforms. We also extend the reach of our solution to thousands of HR professionals who, we’re confident, will recognize the value or our solution for the whole of their enterprise.”

NGA will continue to develop partnerships with other leading solutions providers to manage a range of critical HR services as part of the Inclusion Framework. The euHReka Inclusion framework will be available to new and existing euHReka users and customers and has been activated on September 1, 2011.
