Visier Inc., Hosts Complimentary Webcast: Achieve Greater Business ImpactMove Beyond Measuring HR Metrics to Workforce Analytics

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 31, 2012—Visier Inc., announced today a webinar “Achieve Greater Business Impact—Move Beyond Measuring HR Metrics to Workforce Analytics,” which will discuss the critical importance of moving beyond the simple collection of HR metrics, to workforce analytics. Learn how workforce analytics empowers HR professionals to shift from being operationally focused to become a strategic change agent within their organization to achieve real business value and insight about their workforce.

According to a growing body of research, top-performing companies are far more likely to be advanced users of workforce analytics than lower-performing companies and they readily cite workforce analytics as a competitive differentiator. While many organizations gather and track data regarding their workforce, often these organizations are challenged to know which key performance indicators are critical to measure, and how to move beyond the basic collection of data to be able to find and leverage insights to make meaningful business decisions. To achieve real business results, it is not simply the collection of data but how the metrics become actionable insights—analytics, for the various stakeholders—the HR professionals, business leaders and decision-makers across the organization, in order to make critical workforce decisions.

“Employers today are waking up to the fact that people are the most important and most expensive asset when it comes to their organization’s productivity and profitability,” according to Dave Weisbeck, CSO for Visier. “It is imperative that executive leaders and HR professionals look beyond traditional approaches to managing their workforce metrics, and understand that real business value comes from moving beyond the basic metrics to turning big data into actionable insights for critical business decisions regarding their workforce.”
