Our goal with this white paper is to provide practical, proven concepts that retailers can use today to respond dynamically and successfully while building the framework for long-term success.

Workforce Insight, a leading provider of strategic workforce management, announced the release of its white paper, ''Dynamic Retail Forecasting in Challenging Times''. The white paper outlines four important components that retailers can address today to produce realistic forecasts the organization can trust amid unpredictable times.

The white paper is available for download from Workforce Insight at Retail Workforce Management: White Papers.

"As retailers continue to face the unknown many have discovered that their forecasting model is no longer valid. They have no historical benchmark -- no formula to accurately gauge demand in response to recessionary trends" said Marisue Wells, Retail Strategic Advisor for Workforce Insight. "Our goal with this white paper is to provide practical, proven concepts that retailers can use today to respond dynamically and successfully while building the framework for long-term success."

Like many businesses today, retailers face increasing pressure to provide better value to their customers and stakeholders with limited resources. ''Dynamic Forecasting in Challenging Times'' provides timely guidance that illustrates how retail organizations can take a more proactive approach to battling the economic downturn. The white paper explores key areas of focus to help businesses adjust operational processes, systems and forecasting models to create a flexible, realistic picture of labor drivers impacting retailers today. Workforce Insight outlines why businesses must act quickly and responsively now to produce a culture where honest, accurate visibility wins over unfounded optimism. And the paper makes the point that retailers who remain true to their vision of the desired customer experience will win today and build a foundation for expanded success when the market rebounds.

Workforce Insight's Retail Workforce Management Consultants will be on hand to provide additional guidance about dynamic forecasting and optimal use of workforce management systems at the NRF 98th Annual Convention & EXPO in New York (Jan 11-14, 2009) at Booth # 218.
