Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - (23.02.2012) –Leading Business Execution (BizX) cloud software company SuccessFactors has released a white paper titled Workforce Planning Pitfalls.
 
The white paper provides six tips on how to deliver the workforce of the future, and discusses how this workforce can help achieve consistent business success. Workforce Planning Pitfalls explains how HR executives need be aware of a number of pitfalls to avoid when engaging in strategic workforce planning. These pitfalls are:

  • Expecting HR to “own” workforce planning
  • Failing to see the bigger picture
  • Trying to run before you can walk
  • Talking in a different language to the board’
  • Falling at the last hurdle: Implementation
  • Planning without the right skills

With aging workforces and a shortage of critical talent being amongst the biggest challenges facing today’s businesses, strategic workforce planning has become one of Human Resource’s most important responsibilities. Furthermore, executing talent management activities before they’re needed is the mark of a successful organisation.
 
The white paper is part of a broader campaign focused on business transformation which highlights how workplaces are changing shape rapidly and how organisations are changing their approach to recruitment.   
 
Transforming a workforce with smarter use of data can unlock the potential of the workforce. By aggregating data from across an organisation and using the right analytics, business metrics and human capital tools, it is possible to identify gaps in the skills of a workforce that are required to deliver strategic goals. Once the weaknesses are identified, the gaps can be filled through smart recruitment, targeted training and the use of innovative collaboration technologies. Only then can an organisation begin to transform the performance and delivery of a strategy.
 
SuccessFactors offers solutions to integrate workforce and business performance data to drive deeper understanding of how they can transform their workplace into a high performing organisation with the latest workforce management tools and analytics.
