Aruspex and Human Capital Institute Announce New Certification in Strategic Workforce Planning

Classes Launch Fall of 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - August 3, 2009) - Aruspex, the leading Software as a Service ("SaaS") company solely focused on Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP), and the Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for talent management, today jointly announced the first-ever curriculum to certify Strategic Workforce Planning professionals. The program includes pre-work, classroom instruction, practical application, and a rigorous examination built on the foundation of Aruspex subject matter expertise, and HCI research.

"There is a deep and growing need for Strategic Workforce Planning certification. Organizations worldwide must be able to rely on intensively trained and well qualified professionals who understand the complexities of this new and rapidly developing field," said Howard Koenig, Aruspex CEO.

"Aruspex's market and thought leadership in Strategic Workforce Planning and talent management solutions made our partnership a natural fit for HCI," said Michael Foster, CEO of HCI. "The new course incorporates a number of insightful best practices gained on the ground, working with Aruspex clients in real-world situations."

The new Strategic Workforce Planning course joins HCI's Human Capital Strategist (HCS) as the foundational offerings in a new generation of certification programs for critical talent management skills and competencies. Graduates will earn the SWP Certification, and renewal credits towards the HCS, PHR and SPHR certifications.
