The results of the 2007 Global Workforce Planning Survey brought to light a number of assumptions we held about the roadblocks to successful workforce planning, such as little to no evidence of financial impact and poor integration of the workforce planning process with financial and strategic plans
Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 28, 2008 –-
Infohrm, the global leader in full-service workforce planning, reporting, and analysis solutions today announced the launch of its 2008 global workforce planning survey titled "The Value of Workforce Planning". The 2008 survey builds upon the findings from last year’s Global Workforce Planning Survey, in which only 14 percent of organizations are prepared for the impending loss of skills, corporate knowledge, and leadership that will occur in the next five years.
Through a concise set of questions, the survey will ask participants to evaluate how successful they are in linking workforce planning to strategic and financial planning processes. Organizations will be able to benchmark their current workforce planning practices and identify opportunities for improvement, with a specific focus on building the business case for investments in workforce planning.
“The results of the 2007 Global Workforce Planning Survey brought to light a number of assumptions we held about the roadblocks to successful workforce planning, such as little to no evidence of financial impact and poor integration of the workforce planning process with financial and strategic plans,” said Peter Howes, Chief Executive Officer of Infohrm. “We are eagerly anticipating the 2008 results to clarify how progressive organizations establish a strong foundation for workforce planning.”
The strictly confidential survey will be administered online and is open for response until Friday, April 4, 2008. Infohrm will provide participants with a complimentary copy of the findings in a published report.
The findings will also be presented at Infohrm’s 2008 Workforce Planning Summit, to be held at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa on May 19-20. The event will demonstrate proven methods of workforce planning and highlight how workforce planning should integrate with similar business processes. Confirmed speakers include Google, Microsoft, Safeco Insurance, Ameriprise Financial, Freddie Mac, Greater Baltimore Medical Center, and The Williams Companies.
