Washington, D.C. - October 20, 2009 - The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association advancing the science of strategic talent management, and WorkForce Software, the leader in enterprise workforce management (WFM) solutions for organizations with complex policies and compliance concerns, announced today that WorkForce Software is sponsoring HCI's "Enterprise Workforce Management" education and research track.

"Enterprise Workforce Management" is among several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Development community of interest, an online community HCI and its more than 160,000 members consider critical to organizations working to leverage human capital. The track and its content, part of www.hci.org, can be accessed directly at http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org/hci/tracks_enterprise_workforce_management.guid

"We are delighted to accept this invitation from HCI as the exclusive sponsor of HCI's Enterprise Workforce Management Track," said 35 year HCM veteran Howard Tarnoff, SVP of sales and marketing for Workforce Software. "Contributing to the evolution of WFM, helping HR evolve from a tactical support to a strategic role has afforded me opportunities to work with most of the industry's top organizations. HCI stands alone as it provides HR professionals with human capital management (HCM) best practices and education, and we are proud to participate in this initiative to further solidify the HR professional as the strategic member of their respective management teams."

The track's inaugural webcast, "The Three Cornerstones of Enterprise Workforce Management: Mitigate Complexity, Ensure Compliance, Enable Strategic HR," will be broadcast live on Thurs., Oct. 29 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on www.hci.org. WorkForce Software presenter Dan Hilbert, CEO of Orca Eyes Inc., will examine the various ways Enterprise WFM solutions help organizations. Pre-registration for the free event is required at http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org/hci/events_register.guid?_trainingID=2625&_trainingScheduleID=23836

"Done successfully, the benefits of an enterprise WFM solution are significant; the hard cost savings and productivity improvements related to ensuring compliance, mitigating complexity, and enabling strategic HR can result in investment paybacks measured in months, not years," said Bill Craib, Vice President, HCI Center for Human Capital Excellence. "We're very pleased to have WorkForce Software, masters in this area, share their critical knowledge with the growing HCI community through our Enterprise Workforce Management track."

HCI's "Enterprise Workforce Management" track presents the benefits of enterprise Workforce Management solutions. Workforce Management (WFM) is a term used to define any technology or business solution designed to automate the most common and complex labor policies, manage labor regulation compliance, and enable strategic HR by automating interactions between employees and employers. Common WFM software includes time and attendance, scheduling, activity based costing/labor distribution, multiple assignments, absence management, fatigue management, and employee and manager self-service.
