Washington, D.C. — March 7
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Workbrain, a provider of total workforce management solutions for large enterprises, have announced that Workbrain will sponsor HCI’s Workforce Planning education and research track.
The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI’s Talent Strategy community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to leverage human capital.
Workforce planning is now enjoying a renaissance, as organizations understand its fundamental importance to human capital management.
“After workforce planning made its original splash in the mid-1990s, it fell out of favor with many organizations because of the sheer complexities involved,” said Allan Schweyer, HCI president and executive director. “But today, better techniques, powerful data capture and analytic tools, combined with recruitment and other available management technologies, equip organizations to excel at this enormous and critical task.”
HCI’s track explores how tools and techniques facilitate workforce planning.
Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources provide human capital professionals with the information they need to best approach and succeed at workforce planning.
A panel of expert advisers shares insights and current trends, along with best and next practices.
“Workforce planning is the foundation of better workforce management,” said Tony Marzulli, Workbrain senior vice president of products and marketing. “We are pleased to support HCI’s Workforce Planning track and provide more organizations with the resources they need to succeed in this important area.”
