Nov 13 HRchitect WebMingle Featured Aquire; Next Up is EnticeLabs

November 13, 2009

Our weekly WebMingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry!

So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.

The 60-minute WebMingle on November 13th, the 44th in our WebMingle series, featured Lois Melbourne, CEO and Co-Founder for Aquire. Lois has tremendous passion and knowledge around workforce planning, succession planning, workforce analytics, organizational structures, and more. She also is a great example of giving back by mentoring others on careers. We touched on a bunch of issues related to all of that including: 

  • Why most succession planning solutions may be overkill
  • How mergers and reorganization activity impacts succession plans
  • How organizations are using automated organizational charting solutions to more effectively manage their workforce
  • Why it is critical to maintain the most effective organizational structure and how it translates to better talent management
  • Why more HR professionals are turning to Workforce Analytics
  • How companies can use modeling solutions to improve workforce productivity and profitability
  • Recommendations to HR professionals who are formulating their workforce planning strategies for 2010
  • …and more
