Development Dimensions International, Inc. (DDI) announced receiving the 2012 Partner of the Year Award from Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO). Taleo Corporation is a global leader of SaaS-based Talent Management solutions. DDI has proven that their certified Talent Management Solutions allow users to select, develop and assess talent across all levels of the organization.

“What makes this award especially important is that it allows us to honor a relationship that has added value to Taleo and to our clients,” said Michael Boese, Taleo's Senior Vice President of Taleo Business Edition and Talent Grid Field Operations. "A fundamental element for Taleo's success is creating and sustaining strong partnerships. Our work with DDI is a clear representation of that goal.”

DDI and Taleo have worked together since 2003, pairing technology and content to offer the best products available from two industry leaders renowned for their best practices solutions. “Taleo and DDI are the best kind of partners—we each have our own strengths that support each other's mutual goal of building extraordinary talent,” said Bruce Marks, Director of Global Strategic Partnerships for DDI. “Each year more than 1,000,000 DDI assessments are delivered through Taleo Passport integrations.”

Additionally, DDI provides its industry-leading competency library to Taleo. The DDI competencies work across the Taleo platform, including the recruiting, performance, learning, and succession modules. They form a foundation on which to build a solid talent management solution for companies around the world.

A key achievement this year for the two partners was extending the capability of Taleo's Performance solution by fully integrating DDI's Leadership Mirror multirater/360 feedback. With more than 100 behavioral competencies across five standard models, customers are able to gain unique insights needed to create and track the right development goals to build high performing teams.
