San Francisco headquartered, enterprise planning cloud company, Anaplan, has announced the launch of a portfolio of workforce planning apps that give HR decision-makers “valuable insights to plan for and optimize the talent needed to meet business objectives.”
Anaplan’s platform helps Chief HR Officers (CHROs) visualize and augment enterprise-wide data to create dynamic workforce plans for decisions around every company’s most important investment: people. The apps enable HR decision-makers to eliminate their dependence on disconnected and non-collaborative spreadsheets and maintain live connections to corporate and financial plans.
The suite of strategic workforce planning apps in the Anaplan App Hub available today include:
Plan and unify workforce requirements for headcount, skills, retention, and recruiting. Create a highly-scalable plan with unlimited “what-if” scenarios. Collaborate across HR and business units to align high-level plans with bottom-up operational plans.
Headcount and Payroll Planning:
Balance budgets and prioritize headcount needs across the company to meet business goals. Simulate and optimize headcount and total payroll costs, such as salaries, benefits, and taxes. Build potential scenarios for comparing headcount against capacity forecasts.
Define onboarding goals and tasks for every type of new hire to ramp new employees in the most efficient manner depending on unique business requirements. Model and visualize how new hires progress against set metrics and milestones in a consolidated dashboard. Forecast cost and ramp time by employee role, department, or region.
Shape staffing levels to manage spikes in customer demand. Use forecasting tools to optimize labor levels and minimize labor-related costs.
Fred Laluyaux, Anaplan CEO says, “Anaplan empowers HR planners to continuously optimize the dynamics that affect their human capital. This creates agility, which ultimately lowers talent acquisition costs and ensures the right talent is found when and where it’s needed most in the business. In 2015, no one deserves to be running such a critical process with a mountain of spreadsheets dispersed all over the business.”
