Aruspex workshops demystify a complex business solution and provide an approach that you can deploy straight away
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
With research showing that 74% of corporate executives see workforce planning as an organizational imperative, HR practitioners must rise to the challenge and get the skills to lead in this area. Aruspex, the only company focused solely on this area, today announced the 2009 schedule of their popular workshops in strategic workforce planning, which enable HR to get the best possible grounding in this vital HR skill.
The two-day workshops are focused on equipping organizations with the tools and techniques to move from reactive gap-and-fill practices to proactively building a future workforce in line with business strategies. The series will launch on January 27-28 in San Francisco, then continue to eight more cities in the US and two in Australia through the year. Limited to 15 participants to ensure a personal, hands-on experience, the workshops offer the same techniques used at leading organizations including Aetna, Starbucks Coffee Company and Toyota, and enable practitioners to be immediately effective in the workplace.
"Aruspex workshops demystify a complex business solution and provide an approach that you can deploy straight away," said Lacey All of Starbucks Coffee Company. "It's a great kick start for your workforce planning efforts."
Aruspex's Tess Walton says "It's important to ensure that the skills you take away from a workshop can be immediately applied in the workplace-we ensure our course is truly practical and that's why attendees are so pleased with the outcomes."
Melissa Cummings, Head of Workforce Planning at Aetna, agrees. "The session went way beyond theory and allowed us to really examine what we can do to position ourselves for future success, given the changing landscape of our workforce, in both a qualitative and quantitative way."
