Infohrm has expanded its thought leadership agenda to cover leading-edge discussions highlighting how to integrate workforce planning with the organisation’s financial and strategic planning processes

This event will build upon the success of the Infohrm North American Workforce Planning Summit, held May 19-20, 2008 in Las Vegas, which attracted over 120 participants. The London Workforce Planning Summit will incorporate an impressive speaker line-up, with specific presentation topics including:
-Microsoft: Building Workforce Information in Partnership with Finance

-Starbucks: Strategic Workforce Planning

Attendees will learn from experts on how to build an integrated workforce planning and analytics capability aligned with the organisation’s strategic goals, and receive hands on advice from best practice organisations.

“In partnership with our global membership, Infohrm has identified pressing need to integrate workforce planning activities with financial metrics and mission-critical business processes,” said Peter Howes, Infohrm’s Chairman and CEO. “The 2008 Summit offers attendees the opportunity to learn from best in breed HR practitioners and reframe workforce planning as a clear organisational imperative.”

The Summit will also feature the release of Infohrm’s new “What If?” financial modeling application for workforce planning. For the first time, organisations will be able to quantify the implications of various talent management scenarios, comparing the true business impact of employee hiring, development, and retention decisions. Equipped with the new application, Human Resources professionals can now create workforce models and strategic plans with the same analytical power as Finance and Operations.

In addition to the “What If?” functionality, Infohrm’s workforce planning application now offers integrated external labour force supply and salary data, such as that provided by the National Statistics Office, the ability to view forecasts by business unit or job family, and competency or FTE-based workforce plans. The entire process is fully automated, enabling rapid deployment and ease-of-use.

-Optional two-day, post-summit workshop on Workforce Planning
