Human Capital Institute Announces Details of 2014 Workforce Planning and Analytics Conference

Event to Connect Attendees With Thought Leaders and Provide Best Practices for Creating an Effective Workforce Planning Strategy for Today and Into the Future

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced details of the 2014 Workforce Planning and Analytics Conference, to be held from Monday, February 10 through Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Now in its fifth year, the conference will provide attendees with answers to their biggest workforce planning challenges and present them with the ideas and best practices that can help them make immediate improvements in their organizations.

Despite the importance of workforce planning for organizational success, many organizations -- perhaps more than 70 percent -- lack a true workforce plan. Even if the right data and skills are in place, companies still struggle to convert those assets into viable plans. Although most companies recognize the need to adopt a comprehensive workforce planning strategy, or transform their current processes, many fail to realize that the biggest barriers to doing so are often tactical in nature and require small hops rather than a big leap.

During the 2014 Workforce Planning and Analytics Conference, HCI will gather some of the foremost thinkers, business leaders and practitioners of workforce planning to share their ideas and strategies to kick start and fine-tune an effective workforce planning strategy. The conference will demonstrate how those responsible for workforce planning can gain the insight needed to construct and implement a future-proof plan, understand the technology infrastructure needed to support today's workforce needs and identify how they can build an ideal, balanced workforce. Through a comprehensive agenda of workshops, educational sessions and networking opportunities, attendees can connect with their peers to discuss similar challenges, while learning about the solutions and best practices that can bring workforce planning success.

"As more companies realize just how essential workforce planning is to organizational success, our 2014 Workforce Planning and Analytics Conference was designed to help attendees -- no matter where they fall on the workforce planning spectrum -- identify the tools and practices that can deliver immediate improvements," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "We are pleased to offer attendees high-level insight from some of the most innovative and successful leaders in workforce planning today. We are also confident that the information attendees gain from the conference will help them develop an effective plan of action to enhance workforce planning throughout 2014 and beyond."
