Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) September 7, 2006
Knowledge Infusion, the consulting authority in human capital management (HCM) technology, today announces CEO Jason Averbook will present a discussion on “Transitioning Workforce Skills and Succession Planning” at the IT Solutions Management for Human Resources (ISM) Annual Conference on September 12, 2006 in Minneapolis, Minn. Leveraging his deep expertise in workforce technology, Averbook will discuss how public agencies can address the challenges of retraining existing staff and hiring new staff in order to create a workforce proficient in new technologies.
What: Averbook will explore the challenges public agencies face with many IT and program employees “aging out” and web technologies replacing legacy applications and systems. Participants will learn the importance of re-training existing staff and acquiring new staff with knowledge and skills in the advanced technologies being adopted. Averbook will discuss techniques to plan for and meet these challenges.
“Transitioning Workforce Skills and Succession Planning” is part of the ISM Annual Conference taking place September 10-13, 2006 Minneapolis, Minn. The ISM Conference provides state and local government human services agencies the most current information essential for making effective technology decisions that support program and service delivery goals.
Who: Jason Averbook is CEO and Co-founder of Knowledge Infusion. With more than 15 years of experience in the HR and technology industry, including senior management positions at PeopleSoft and Ceridian, Jason has worked with industry leading companies around the world to help them transform their HR organizations into strategic partners. In July 2006 Jason was named to Human Capital Magazine’s distinguished list of 2006 Future HR Leaders.
Why: In the ever-changing world of information technology, new technologies are continually replacing the old ones. The concepts and tools inherent in such technologies as relational databases and object-oriented development are far removed from what many longtime employees are familiar with and able to easily understand, thus presenting new, major challenges for both IT and program staff. In July 2006 Jason was named to Human Capital Magazine’s distinguished list of 2006 Future HR Leaders.
When: “Transitioning Workforce Skills and Succession Planning” will take place Monday, September 12, 2006, from 2:00 p.m. - 3:15 pm EDT. For additional information visit: http://www.aphsa-ism.org/
