San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
HR Executives and business leaders can learn first-hand how Starbucks Coffee Company moved past forecasting and metrics to adapt a comprehensive workforce planning strategy at HR.com's VIEW Conference and Expo. Best of all, they can attend without leaving their offices.
Experts from both Starbucks and Aruspex, a leading provider of workforce planning software and consulting services, will present the online event titled, Workforce Planning: Moving from Spreadsheets to a Comprehensive Process. The free webcast will be held Wednesday, December 12, at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Time).
Presenters include Lacey All, Manager, Workforce Planning, Starbucks Coffee Company, and Stacy Chapman, co-founder of Aruspex. The session will follow Starbucks' journey through forecasting and metrics to true strategic workforce planning. This new approach factors internal and external influences on Starbucks' workforce, including demography, globalization and business strategies. It embraces organizational and partner diversity, and enables Starbucks to integrate and incorporate their organizational knowledge, not just their HR data.
"In 2006, Starbucks realized that in a changing, challenging workforce they need to take a leading view on workforce planning if they are to continue to attract and retain the right workforce for their success," said Chapman. "In today's global talent market, calculating the numbers is no longer enough."
Over 40 industry luminaries will headline the December 12-13 VIEW Conference, including Carly Fiorina, Keith Ferrazzi, Marcus Buckingham, and Kenny Moore. In addition to educational sessions, VIEW attendees can network with hundreds of peers, visit exhibitor booths and a virtual lounge, earn points towards show prizes and interact with HR industry exhibitors.
