    Workforce Technology; Pitfalls and Possibilities

    Presented by Heather Kinzie and Andrew Kupperman

    ASHRM and the participants of this event can expect to be guided through many “ah ha” moments about what data can tell them, what digitizing data can do for them, and how the right software can augment and amplify their value to an organization. While we can’t promise everyone will be “data geeks” or be well prepared to jump into writing a proposal or business case for investing in technology, we can promise that they will be well prepared to begin influencing and educating others on the benefits of the investment.

    The effective capture and analysis of data facilitates sound decision making for organizational growth, talent acquisition, staffing models and projections, workforce capacity and growth, pay and benefits, and engagement.

    After this three hour event, participants will be able to:

    • Clearly understand the methodology used when discussing workforce data and data management

    • Identify the pitfalls of not having a plan or process in place and learn how to mitigate them in preparation for adopting technology

    • Choose a vendor or software solution that is best suited for their organization’s current and future needs and expectations

    • Understand how workforce technology can help create operational efficiencies • Understand how workforce technology can enable better recommendations and decision making

    SHRM’s behavioral competencies are also addressed in the course content. The HR professionals’ expertise in business acumen, consultation and critical evaluation will all directly addressed through lecture, group discussion and debrief.
