Workforce Intelligence solutions provider will demonstrate how HR is evolving from an administrative function to a strategic force with actionable data

  Las Vegas, NV -- Visier, the innovation leader in Workforce Intelligence, announced today that it will be demonstrating how the datafication of HR can lead to improved revenues, profits, and bottom line savings at the 2014 HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas. In the spirit of HR transformation, the company will reveal how companies like ConAgra Foods, McGraw Hill Financial, and Micron Technology are using Workforce Intelligence -- a new category of cloud solutions for business management -- to link talent strategies with business results. “Workforce Intelligence has been a key part of Micron’s broader initiative to move HR towards a more fact-based discipline,” says Tim Long, Director of Workforce Information, Micron Technology. “We have enabled more nimble decision-making and the uncovering of new insights to drive business results. We’re already seeing the results and are making great progress in advancing our HR department toward a more fact-based, data-driven entity, with the analytic chops to match Finance or Engineering – supporting a true HR transformation.” "Global competition, ​the ​rising ​cost of people​, ​​and the need for more intelligent allocation of scarce resources have created the need for HR transformation,” says John Schwarz, CEO and Co-Founder, Visier. “Workforce Intelligence enables HR to ​understand the organization dynamics and to optimize headcount, cost, and skills in alignment with profit targets​. Not only does Workforce Intelligence democratize data -- giving HR and people managers access to insights at their fingertips -- but it also lets HR turn those insights into actionable workforce plans that drive real business results.” Visitors to the Visier booth (#1127) at the 2014 HR Technology Conference will have the opportunity to learn how a growing number of the world’s best brands are using Visier to realize cost savings and achieve competitive advantages by applying Workforce Intelligence to:
