Infor's Talent Management software helps Denver Public Schools administrators make the grade when it comes to human resource management.
Denver Public Schools (DPS) in Denver, Colorado—with nearly 200 schools serving over 84,000 students—has become one of the first school districts in the nation to use Infor Talent Management. The Ciber-led implementation is intended to support the district's 2010 Denver Plan, which calls for putting students first by finding and retaining the most qualified teachers for every classroom. As outlined in the plan, the Talent Management suite supports one of the district's top-line goals: strategic management of human resources.
The Infor solution features enhanced user-oriented functionality, built-in automation, self-service functionality, and a talent-management focus. The software-which includes modules covering global human resources, performance, and goals tracking-builds upon the existing Infor Human Capital Management suite by delivering a unified platform that ties together software, content, and process to help organizations operate more efficiently. The implementation is supported by an Infor-Ciber relationship that dates back to 1995, which has been enhancing client systems capabilities through more than two million consulting hours.
The software spells out the ABC's of evaluating teachers and aligning compensation with qualifications—enabling Denver Public Schools administrators to support and reward effective teaching. This recognition promotes effective teachers who have a passion for grooming the leaders of tomorrow.
"The new Infor software dramatically modernizes our back-end systems and sets the stage for the district to achieve its long-term goal of hiring great people to deliver great results," said Shayne Spalten, DPS chief HR officer. "Ciber has worked with us to understand the unique requirements of K-12 school operating environments and helped design a system to truly meet our needs."
