Kalido and HCL

Introducing Kalido

Today, the ERS team is launching a pilot scheme for a new product, Kalido. If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up for the pilot now.

What is Kalido?

Kalido is an AI powered platform that finds and creates opportunities for individuals in enterprises and communities. It supercharges worker well-being, business productivity and innovation.

Kalido’s intuitive tools match people – based on skills – to connections, teams, projects and roles, to surface economic, professional and social opportunities that would otherwise stay hidden.

Do we need to try out another tool? Why is Kalido different?

The reason we’re piloting Kalido with the ERS team is because we believe it has a genuinely different offering and the potential to transform the way we work at HCL. What sets Kalido apart is its smart, proprietary AI that matches people using their skills and goals to uncover opportunities that usually remain hidden when using traditional collaboration and recruitment tools.

“At HCL we were extremely excited to invest in Kalido in 2019. We could see the tremendous possibility this product has to transform organisations by creating truly liquid workforces, and optimising productivity and employee well-being. Kalido has the potential to be a game-changer, not only for us, but our clients too.”

Vijay Anand Guntur, Corporate VP and Head – HnC, Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies.

Rich, dynamic profiles

Kalido lets users create a holistic whole-self picture of their skills, interests and experience, to match with great opportunities in the HCL Network.

Kalido’s Skill Matching technology acts like a search engine for finding people in the HCL Network. It also showcases real-time availability of employees so they can switch between projects with greater fluidity. 

Faster, smarter, more flexible collaboration

All the collaboration tools for agile working on one platform. Users can send direct Chat messages, start Group Chats with other users or create Channels that are ideal for long-term conversations around a specific project or topic. Share files, images and polls with ease.

Kalido’s Nearby function shows users the people around them and the skills they can provide. Great for building a team, getting expert help for a project or arranging impromptu meetings.
