Talent science for government
September 19, 2016While I am heading to Phoenix for the APHSA-ISM show, I cannot help but think about the challenges I heard last year about hiring & retaining social workers. Social workers are employed in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, schools, child welfare &human service agencies, hospitals, community development, and private practices. Becoming a social worker is arduous, demanding, and complex. The work no different.
As a result, Governments are facing serious workforce dilemmas in fulfilling agency missions with impending shortage of skilled workers.
What if data science could identify the best fit for a social worker based on the behavioral trends? Clinical vs. Direct Services social work requires different behavioral strengths. Social work is challenging & pulls at the heart strings. Whomever you hire, you want them to succeed, to serve your community, and to have a long-term career.
Therefore, I’m looking forward to sharing Infor’s Talent Science solutions to partner with the government with these challenges. #ISMPHX, @SWSpeak
