Growing companies like yours need HCM solutions that work, and work well. Your HCM system needs to be useful, flexible, and powerful. As you grow, your business demands a wider range of capabilities—without adding unnecessary maintenance, deployment time, and cost.

You need talent management and HR systems that are strong enough to meet your workforce needs today, but innovative and flexible enough to adapt as your business evolves and grows. With global competition and market pressure escalating, it’s more important than ever to have modern human capital solutions that are up to the challenge. Infor Human Capital Management software empowers organizational leaders with the critical tools and information they need to optimize the workforce and HR.

Talent optimization requires alignment between talent and business strategies, and connection with people and roles.

Companies must focus on a clear picture of their talent capabilities to understand gaps between the desired skill set needed to achieve goals and actual abilities.

The key is to leverage your entire workforce, release talent potential, plan for future organizational performance needs, and understand how talent behavior can drive performance.

All companies strive for growth, and doing so requires top performance from the workforce. When employees are fully engaged with the organizational vision, they are more committed to seeing their company succeed.

You can also expect engaged employees to drive better business results, reflect a higher retention rate, and contribute more energy and productivity than disengaged peers.

Creating an environment that fosters authentic employee connection can be a challenge and it's crucial to get it right since the attributes of an engaged workforce produce elevated service and profits. You can encourage top performance by aligning talent and business strategy, communicating effectively, and empowering employees.

The desire to maximize HR's role in mission-critical areas is propelling efforts to increase workforce effectiveness. By extracting employees' full potential and improving performance, you can help shape financial growth. In doing so, HR becomes a valued contributor that generates competitive advantage and demonstrates labor ROI.

HR has successfully used technology to help reduce costs and improve operations, but efforts to quantify contributions have fallen short. If HR aligns strategy with business goals and continues to place the right people and systems in place, then the ability to influence and measure better business performance will only grow.

The demographic shift in the workforce is creating HR challenges in addressing succession planning, productivity gaps, attracting and retaining the best talent, employee training and development, and balancing both technological resistance and expectations from a multi-generational workforce.

One of the key issues surrounding the exit of nearly 70 million workers is the transfer of knowledge to a new generational workforce. Companies are already working on efficient ways to capture, store, and share information to maintain and grow competitive advantage.

Meeting these challenges and mitigating associated risks during transition requires long-term, comprehensive plans and tools that align with organizational strategy.

Along with swift market changes, cloud-based technology is significantly influencing HR. Cloud computing, like software-as-a-service (SaaS) systems, have the ability to offer lower upfront costs, quicker deployment, and more comfortable implementations and maintenance.

Better adoption to change is also an important benefit. The flexibility of the cloud allows organizations to meet fluctuating requirements while avoiding traditional investment costs like new infrastructure, training, and additional software licensing. This powerful environment creates opportunities to expand your agility and better align HR with organizational strategy.

HR can utilize the cloud to increase its overall contribution by redefining service delivery and impacting talent, operational, and revenue strategies. Understanding and embracing cloud-based solutions and the capacity to support changing organizational priorities, a global workforce, and social and mobile access is positioning companies for success.

    One of the major considerations for a capable Workforce Management Solution is, of course, the capabilities they provide. By its very definition, a Workforce Management Solution must provide a suite of capabilities which enable organizations to manage their workforce and its activities. Anything less would not justify that classification. Therefore in our view, a capable Workforce Management Solution must provide organizations with specific capabilities outlined here.
