Visier, the innovation leader in workforce analytics, announced today it will be hosting a complimentary webinar, "Five Critical Obstacles HR Must Overcome on the Road to Successful Workforce Analytics," on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. EDT/ 10:00 a.m. PDT.
Organizations are collecting more data on the workforce than ever before, and increasingly asking for ways to use this information to improve their workforce to deliver improved business results. With increasing volumes and sources of data comes more complexity, which is further compounded by an increasingly demanding business environment. How does one manage the multitude of sources and volumes of data? What to measure? How to gain organizational support to invest in necessary solutions? Answering these questions and more is the key to being successful. What are the critical obstacles or barriers HR must overcome to move forward with workforce analytics to transform their organization into a strategic partner driving their business success?
HR has always known that people are the most important and most expensive, asset to an organization. However, they are seldom equipped to quantify and accurately report fact-based findings about their workforce to executive and business leaders. Executives want evidence that HR is improving the bottom line. Can HR successfully secure executive sponsorship and build the right business case for workforce analytics? To be successful, HR must graduate from the simple collection of HR metrics to the power of workforce analytics. The first question that must be answered is: What should HR measure about their workforce?
It is no surprise that workforce analytics has become one of the hottest business topics, as it empowers organizations to get an accurate view of their workforce and use the data to guide them in fact-based human capital decisions and strategies. So what is it all about, where is it going, and how do organizations get started?
In this webinar, participants will learn:
"Actions speak louder than words; organizations continue to use Excel as their tool of choice to gain understanding of their workforce data and yet, they are vocal about their high levels of dissatisfaction. Spreadsheets are time-consuming to build and maintain, difficult to share, and prone to human error," according to John Schwarz, Founder and CEO for Visier. "Successful organizations need to be agile and forward-thinking. This is best achieved by implementing a workforce analytics solution, and through comprehensive analysis bring about meaningful change in the workforce that impacts the business bottom line."
