To find out answers to these and many other questions, you’re invited to take part in Jeitosa’s Fifth Annual Going Global Survey. Co-sponsored by the association for International Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM), Jeitosa’s Going Global Survey covers the global HR, Benefits, Payroll and Talent Management functions, specifically focusing on global HR strategy, global organization design, global business process design, people, competences and culture, plus the global vendor landscape and technology infrastructure options that support the strategy of top-performing organizations.

The survey covers global HR strategy, organization, business process, culture, and technology—all the areas where Jeitosa has no real competition that I know of.”

With human capital accounting for nearly 70% of an organization’s cost, optimizing the investment demands constant vigilance. While most organizations do engage in planning around talent development, organizational structure and future workforce needs, the planning is often performed on an ad hoc or as-needed basis—and with limited participation from line-of-business leaders.
The Human Capital Institute recently examined the effects of planning on bottom line results. The findings? Organizations that build a management discipline around both organizational planning and talent planning enjoy higher employee engagement, profitability and strategy alignment. Planning for either without the other produces suboptimal results.
HCI’s findings confirm that organizational planning, or creating and adjusting the organizational structure to meet business goals, enables a new level of organizational agility when done with a methodical process on a regular basis.
With an organizational planning discipline, a firm is better prepared to adapt quickly to changes in the business environment and is better equipped for long-term or strategic workforce planning. This flexibility can provide an outstanding competitive edge, especially when an organization is confronted with reorganizations, restructurings or mergers and acquisitions.

Increasingly, today’s employees “workshift.” That means they work from anywhere, anytime. Furthermore, they and their supervisors now demand more control over managing and developing their careers.
These human capital management trends make the IHRIM 2012 HRMS Strategies Conference and Technology Expo, April 30-May 3, Chicago, with more than 58 educational conference and pre-conference sessions, such a marquee event for HR systems learning.
Citrix Senior Director of Global HRIS and Metrics Rich Berger agrees. “There’s no better place to meet leading HRIS providers than IHRIM,” he says. During the conference, Berger will present a compelling case study, “Manage Talent from Anywhere—Mobile and Cloud Come Together for Citrix.” In it, he will detail how Citrix implemented a robust talent management solution, helping a mobile workforce plan and track talent needs 24x7x365 by leveraging mobile devices (such as iPads) and remote access to corporate talent information, recruiting activities and other mobile apps—all from the cloud.
Expect Berger, a long-time user of HumanConcepts workforce visualization solutions, to drop by our booth (#810) during IHRIM. Learn from a master how combining application-driven software with established business processes and a cloud computing platform can transform a workforce while simultaneously delighting employees and managers.
