Data analysis key to successful workforce planning to achieve business transformation

Perth, AUSTRALIA – (26.02.2012) – The global Business Execution (BizX) cloud software company, SuccessFactors, an SAP company, will be holding a number of business seminars in Australia to discuss how data holds the key to delivering successful workforce planning strategies.

Whether you’re in HR, marketing, operations, finance or sales, you probably have access to more data than you know what to do with, but you are still challenged with how to transform your business. By aggregating all this data from across your organisation and using the right analytics – business metrics and human capital tools – you can identify the gaps in your workforce’s skills.  

Once you know where the gaps are, you can begin to develop strategies through smarter recruitment, targeted training and the use of innovative collaboration technologies. The net result is a more dynamic workforce and you will begin to transform the way your organisation can perform, become more competitive and deliver the strategy.

The SuccessFactors’ seminar series will discuss the latest workforce management strategies and explore how the latest social learning tools, and recruitment marketing strategies are being used to help organisations transform their business.

During each seminar, Dr. Karie Willyerd, co-author of ‘The 2020 Workplace: How Innovative Companies Attract, Develop, and Keep Tomorrow’s Employees Today’ and other leading industry workforce planning and technology experts from SuccessFactors will be sharing valuable insights into how you can help prepare for tomorrow’s workforce, today. This includes how to win the “War for Talent” via recruitment marketing and how to make the best use of workforce data to make smarter decisions.

The seminar series will address the following:

  • How to create strategies today and readiness for the future
  • Build a stronger decision-making culture based on credible data
  • How to mitigate risks by identifying the skills and competencies needed to meet your growth strategy and needs of your future workforce
  • How to win the “War for Talent” via recruitment marketing at a fraction of the cost of using traditional social recruiting methods

The business seminars, titled Rapidly Transform Your Workplace, will take place throughout March 2012 in Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
