Las Vegas, October 7, 2013 – Mercer announced today at the 16th Annual HR Technology® Conference & Exposition the launch of its new Workforce Planning application, the latest enhancement to its Mercer Analytics offerings. The Workforce Planning application combines decades of strategic workforce planning experience and methodology with the flexible and proven technology platform from OrcaEyes to help clients better identify and act upon critical gaps in current workforce resources and future needs for a lasting competitive advantage (see Figure 1).
“Particularly for those organizations that rely on highly-skilled employees and those expanding into high-growth markets, getting the right talent in the right place at the right time and right cost has never been a more important, yet more challenging, competitive and strategic imperative,” said Brian J. Kelly, Global Leader for Mercer’s Analytics and Planning Practice. “We feel our Workforce Planning application can provide a sustainable, repeatable process that not only explains a client’s workforce of today but predicts the needs of tomorrow.”
Key client benefits of the Mercer Analytics Workforce Planning application include:
- Client ownership of workforce information, including the ability to support “what if” scenario planning and analysis
- Mercer’s intellectual capital on key workforce planning metrics and algorithms to ensure the right elements and segments are measured and forecast
- “Fact-based” decisions on the best way the workforce can support business strategy
- Data collection, management and visualization for accelerated decision making
“We are very excited and proud to be part of the technology platform supporting the Mercer Analytics Workforce Planning application,” said Dan Hilbert, Founder and CEO of OrcaEyes. “Having interacted with Mercer consultants for years, we are very familiar with their workforce planning methodologies and thought leadership. We look forward to an even stronger relationship as the Workforce Planning application gains further marketplace traction.”
The Workforce Planning application is fully integrated into the Mercer Analytics suite but can also be utilized on a standalone basis.
