Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 3, 2009
Knowledge Infusion, a leading provider of strategic advisory and consulting services focused on HR, talent management, and emerging technology solutions, today announces Optimization Services. The services are designed to help HR, IT, and business leaders meet the demands of unprecedented changes in the current business environment and provide business strategies where HR is faced with constantly changing imperatives like layoffs, reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, and doing more with less.
Knowledge Infusion Optimization Services are offered on a tiered engagement level varying from 1-2 day workshops, to short-term diagnostic engagements, to custom, client-configured packages. With hard ROI tied to the services, clients are assured both value creation and cost reduction are achieved. The areas of focus for the packaged services include:
- Strategy Calibration--to evaluate current state strategic alignment and identify opportunities for improved alignment between HR initiatives and business objectives.
- Process Maturity--to evaluate current processes and identify areas in which the organization can achieve cost savings and greater effectiveness with minimal spend.
- Architectural Assessment--to evaluate current technology environment and identify strategies and opportunities to drive optimal use, efficiencies, integration of multiple assets and realize ROI on technology investments.
- Service Delivery--to evaluate the ability to optimize the balance between delivering a positive end-user experience and leveraging an efficient delivery
Knowledge Infusion Optimization Services are designed to help HR and IT leaders continue to move forward and create business value during the down economy. The services will enable HR and IT leaders to offer solutions to the business which will impact both the top and bottom line by maximizing the value of existing investments and reducing waste in people, process, and technology. The services are designed to be delivered with the option to assume little to no incremental investment but instead identify ways to maximize existing resources.
The packaged services can be applied to any number of HR processes or technologies including core HR, talent management, talent acquisition, performance management, succession planning, career planning, learning and development, workforce collaboration and interaction, and many others.
"Knowledge Infusion has been on the front lines of the economic crisis, working closely with our clients to adapt their talent strategies and optimize their HR technology investments to support a dramatically changed business environment," said Jason Averbook, CEO of Knowledge Infusion. "It is incumbent upon HR to proactively present solutions to the business and continue to drive value for their organization."
"The business needs solutions that will create a lean and focused talent pool, streamlined and effective processes, workforce collaboration, and reduced HR technology spend. It is the HR organization that can make this happen and we have taken customer learnings and created service offerings designed for the HR and IT leader of 2009," said Heidi Spirgi, President of Knowledge Infusion. "With Knowledge Infusion's vendor agnostic approach to HR technology as well as our focus on strategy, best practices, and web 2.0 and other emerging and low-cost technologies, rather than on the bits and bites of technical implementation, we are uniquely positioned to help organizations drive costs down and drive value higher in 2009."
