Today many HR organizations are struggling with systems that fall short when it comes to meeting the strategic demand for a talented and engaged workforce. In fact, 84% of HR organizations are currently looking at cloud alternatives, but the promise of the cloud can lead to fragmented, inflexible systems with limited functionality that result in inconsistent global HR processes. What’s more, HR IT has questions about key requirements like integration, data security, and performance.
Technology plays an integral role in enabling businesses to have access to insightful analytics. By providing metrics on core workforce facts, workforce financials, productivity and performance, talent development and succession and human capital risk, companies are able to identify those 10- 15 metrics most important to business goals. This will enable them to present the Board of Directors with a comprehensive and concise story of workforce capabilities. The best place, we suggest, is with expert, practical guidance.

The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics that matter to them. Organizations today need to more actively solicit, analyze and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees. Having access to the collective “employee voice” can help leaders achieve diverse goals, including identifying innovations, preventing discord and improving productivity, as well as building a better connection to the organization and its mission. So, how can organizations establish and manage mutually beneficial listening programs?
To better understand what companies are doing in the area of employee listening and the extent to which employees are willing to participate, we analyzed data from the 2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Institute WorkTrends Survey – a broad-based survey of ov
Attracting talented job candidates is one of the biggest
challenges facing HR in the next 10 years.1 Understandably,
organizations want top talent and they are highly focused on
recruiting strategies that enable them to hire the very best.
One increasingly popular strategy is mobile recruitment. As
mobile devices become ever more ubiquitous, potential
candidates are starting to look more favorably at organizations
offering a mobile recruitment option.2 But are all candidates
created equal when it comes to mobile recruitment? We decided
to take a look at the coveted members of the workforce and
explore their use of and attitudes towards mobile recruitment.
Using the high-potential employees subset of our global
WorkTrends™ survey data, we were able to compare top talent,
who significantly outperform their peers and demonstrate a
stronger capacity to succeed,3,4 with other employees. The
results provide new insight into mobile recruiting and guidance
for organizations looking to attract
Workforce analytics is a very significant development in human
resources. It promises the potential for deeper understanding
of the ways workers contribute to organizational performance.
However, workforce analytics is not just about analyzing data
to reveal exciting insights; it also requires the active
involvement of a firm’s workers if the potential of analytics is
to be fully realized. Without active employee participation,
workforce analytics efforts face at best, restricted data sources
and data sets that are incomplete and at worst, the risk of
damaging employee relations and, ultimately, productivity.
This white paper summarizes recommendations that will
encourage enthusiasm for workforce analytics and active
employee participation, using the FORT (Feedback, Opt-in,
Reciprocal, Transparent) framework. The FORT criteria could
prove particularly useful in European countries. This is
because the 1995 European Union Data Protection Directive,

The information security world is rich with information. From reviewing logs to analyzing malware, information is everywhere and in vast quantities, more than the workforce can cover. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of study that is adept at applying intelligence to vast amounts of data and deriving meaningful results. In this book, we will cover machine learning techniques in practical situations to improve your ability to thrive in a data driven world. With clustering, we will explore grouping items and identifying anomalies. With classification, we’ll cover how to train a model to distinguish between classes of inputs. In probability, we’ll answer the question “What are the odds?” and make use of the results. With deep learning, we’ll dive into the powerful biology inspired realms of AI that power some of the most effective methods in machine learning today. Learn more about AI in this eBook.

As The Business Becomes Digital, Security Must Become Data-Centric S&R leaders of enterprises undergoing a digital transformation will soon realize that in order to adequately ensure customer protection and enable a digital workforce, S&R pros must abandon traditional perimeter-based security and put the focus on the data by embracing Forrester’s Zero Trust Model.
As a tech leader, you recognize that disruption is afact of life. According to Gartner, enterprise IT has entered an era of digitalization where disruptive new products are providing a continuous stream of growth, innovation, and differentiation. IT overhauls in business productivity—moving to the cloud, supporting a remote workforce, and preserving valuable legacy data while maintaining security and control—are necessary for your business to remain competitive. These changes require communications solutions that can keep pace with the accelerating demands of the connected world.
In today’s on-demand economy, speed and flexibility are critical. The modern workforce uses multiple devices, expecting them to work
seamlessly from any location, at any time. They want to communicate in real time and must have easy access to the data and productivity tools they need to do their jobs well.
Office 365 harnesses the power of the cloud to improve the capabilities of the familiar Microsoft Office suite to meet these expectations. It’s a robust productivity toolbox that helps companies
transform the way they engage, serve and sell to customers.

As enterprises large and small shift their information to the cloud, an explosion of SaaS tools are making it easier than ever for employees to collaborate and innovate. Much of this sharing is being done across time zones and physical locations, by workers who are telecommuting, working in shared or public spaces, and from open networks. Information is stored on central, third-party servers that are accessible across the company and the world by anyone with an internet connection.
As a result, online security is increasingly being pushed to the forefront as a major corporate expense. Yet, 89% of the global information workforce lack clarity on how security applies to the cloud. “Data is suddenly everywhere, and so are the number of people, access points and administrators who can control – or worse, copy – the data."

Swiping a card to gain access to a company building is now a perfectly accepted feature of everyday corporate life. Over the years, we have all grown familiar with the routine and the advantages it brings to access control. But where cards were once used exclusively to open doors, controlling who went where and when in a building, now they can be used for a wide variety of extra functions.
