Avoid common pitfalls of workforce planning with SuccessFactors white paper

Tue, 6 Mar 2012 19:31:09 EST

Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - (06.03.2012) – In conjunction with its forthcoming business seminar series in Australia, SuccessFactors, an SAP company and a global leader in Business Execution (BizX) cloud software solutions, has released a white paper titled Workforce Planning Pitfalls.
 
The paper uncovers the common pitfalls of the workforce planning process and how to achieve the workforce of the future, and discusses how this workforce can help achieve consistent business success.
 
With the Workforce Planning Pitfalls white paper, HR executives will become aware of a number of costly pitfalls they need 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.   
 
Recent experience suggests that smarter use of data can unlock the potential of the workforce helping to accelerate the process of business transformation. Data exists in all areas of the business and only by aggregating this data 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.
