Kscope 2015: Bringing Simplicity and Efficiency to Global Workforce Planning [Podcast]

In the following podcast, SC&H Group’s John Smiechowski and Matt Ruff discuss their upcoming presentation at Kscope 2015, which will focus on bringing simplicity and efficiency to global workforce planning efforts.

The workforce for any company is its greatest asset, but also expense. Not surprisingly, in the wake of the economic downturn, many global companies have shifted their focus to look at these expenses in more detail to enhance both budgeting efforts and workforce optimization.

In today’s fast-paced business world, companies simply cannot plan out their workforces a year or more in advance. As a result, budget estimates become obsolete very quickly, and this exercise becomes more of a “check the box” type of exercise rather than a true cost control tool.

Workforce planning often involves a complex web of manually created spreadsheets that have limited standardization and lack the proper security controls. This complexity increases the likelihood of human error, and makes the entire process highly cumbersome and time-consuming.

These are some of the insights that John and Matt will share at Kscope 2015. In addition, both experts will discuss an SC&H Group case study, where a $10 billion global hospitality provider was able to streamline its workforce planning process.

By developing a driver-based planning model in Oracle Hyperion Planning, SC&H Group helped the company implement a simplified and structured a workforce planning process that saved time and money and was applied on a global scale.
