Visier Inc. Launches 2nd Annual Survey To Identify and Measure Workforce Analytics & Planning Trends

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(December 13, 2012) – Visier Inc., the innovation leader in delivering workforce analytics and planning through the cloud, today announced the release of its 2013 Survey of Employers Questionnaire, “Workforce Analytics and Planning Practices, Preferences & Plans,” conducted by HRmarketer Services Group.

The survey, comprised of 16 questions, examines how practitioners and leaders are using and evolving their solutions to understand, predict and plan their workforce.

The knowledge economy, more than ever, has made an organization’s people its most important asset and one of its greatest investments. The total cost of a workforce represents nearly 70% of the operating expenses for Fortune 500 companies.

Enterprise organizations are collecting more and more data about their business and their people. Coupled with challenges such as increased complexity in today’s workforce, economic pressures, talent as a competitive edge, aligning the people strategy with the business strategy, and many other challenges, HR must increasingly be information-savvy. Today’s HR leaders are faced with unrelenting pressure to drive both strategic and operational performance for their organizations.

“We know for a fact that workforce analytics improves an organization’s return-on-investment for its human capital, and a return-on-investment for people provides for an overwhelming business advantage,” according to Dave Weisbeck, Chief Strategy Officer for Visier. “Analytics is the critical key that allows organizations to be responsive and flexible and ready to meet the ever-increasing challenges in today’s workforce and business market–as well as tomorrow’s.”

Survey respondents will be automatically entered into a drawing to win one of two $250 American Express gift cards. Winners will be selected at random and notified. The survey will remain open until January 14, 2013. All participants will receive an advanced copy of the survey results in January, before they are released to the public.
