Â Further expanding its leading strategic human capital management (HCM) consulting services, Knowledge Infusion today announced it is leveraging its expertise in the workforce performance management space to help customers boost employee performance management initiatives for 2006 and beyond. Knowledge Infusion experts will work closely with customers to help them redesign their employee performance review process, select a vendor that fits their organizational goals and technology requirements, and develop an operational and deployment plan to guarantee a successful roll-out.
Whether an organization is looking to deploy an employee performance management solution in time for January 2006 or at a later date, Knowledge Infusion offers the following four-phased consulting service that can be completed in a rapid one-month time period:
- Strategy & Process Alignment
By combining its depth of experience and best practices in designing performance management processes and solutions for Fortune 500 companies with each customerÂs unique business needs, Knowledge Infusion will help organizations rapidly define a performance management strategy. This initial phase will recommend an operational future state by examining the customerÂs existing performance management business challenges.
- Operational Design & Conversion Strategy
This phase will provide customers with an operational plan that includes a detailed definition of their targeted business results as well as a plan as to how the organization can achieve these goals while minimizing business disruption.
- Product/Technology Assessment & Selection
Knowledge Infusion will work with the customers to create an RFP and provide a neutral vendor analysis and recommendation for solution procurement. Additionally, this step will help organizations evaluate vendorsÂ fit with business objectives, IT requirements, operational design requirements, and broader workforce performance management strategy.
- Rapid Project Transition
The final phase includes a cross functional team meeting with all organizations involved in the project such as HR, IT, Communications, Training and Organizational Change. Knowledge Infusion will help drive an ÂInternal Awareness MeetingÂ involving business leaders and interested parties to ensure that the internal deployment of the project will be successfully rolled out. Customers may also choose to leverage Knowledge InfusionÂs ÂDeployment ExcellenceÂ consulting service to enhance their success and augment internal marketing efforts around the project.
ÂAs organizations adopt performance management and address the issue of connecting people and processes to drive improvement in the organization, there is a critical imperative to improve the value and outcomes of the workforce which has created an initiative called Workforce Performance Management,Â said Mark Smith, CEO and Senior Vice President of Research at Ventana Research, a Performance Management research and advisory services firm. ÂThis initiative has become a strategic priority not only for HR organizations, but for operations and finance departments as well.Â
ÂSince most organizations align the start of their employee performance review cycles with the calendar year, it is crucial they understand that itÂs not too late to roll-out a new performance management strategy for 2006,Â said Jason Averbook, CEO of Knowledge Infusion. ÂBy leveraging Knowledge InfusionÂs unmatched expertise in this area, we can empower our customers to execute on their future workforce performance management initiatives, creating a positive impact on the organizationÂs culture as well as its overall performance.Â
