"What-If?" Financial Modeling Capabilities Demonstrate Bottom-Line Impact of Human Capital Investments

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 5, 2008) - Infohrm, the global leader in workforce planning, reporting, and analysis solutions has announced the release of its "What-If?" financial modeling application for workforce planning. For the first time, organizations will be able to quantify the implications of various talent management scenarios, comparing the true business impact of employee hiring, development, and retention decisions. Equipped with the new application, Human Resources professionals can now create workforce models and strategic plans with the same analytical power as Finance and Operations.

"The market demands a workforce planning application that can integrate with financial and strategic planning cycles," said Brian Kelly, Infohrm's President of North America. "Infohrm's 'What-If?' financial models increase the power of workforce planning by demonstrating how different talent management scenarios will materially impact the entire organization."

In addition to the "What-If?" functionality, Infohrm's workforce planning application now offers integrated external labor force supply and salary data, such as that provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the ability to view forecasts by business unit or job family, and competency- or FTE-based workforce plans. The entire process is fully automated, enabling rapid deployment and ease-of-use.

The application's initial release was at the Infohrm Workforce Planning Summit, held at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa on May 19-20, 2008.
