by SoftscapeJul 30, 2010

There is little doubt that recessions breed a "hunker down" mentality among employees.

Once productive environments can quickly become toxic, further deteriorating productivity.

This CEO guide provides three key tips for leveraging proven talent management principles, practices, and technologies to retain your top performers.


Whitepaper: The CEO's Guide to Succession Planning: Managing Risk and Ensuring Business Continuity

by SoftscapeJun 29, 2010

Once reserved for the upper echelons of senior management, and often viewed as replacement planning should catastrophe strike, today�s succession planning is being redefined. The discipline has broadened in both breadth and scope to become a central component of board-level strategy. Succession planning focuses on managing risk and ensuring continuity across all levels of the organization �- risk of untimely departures of critical personnel, risk of retirees taking their skills and knowledge with them and leaving nothing behind, and risk of losing high value employees to competitors. It does so by helping your business leaders identify top performers within the organization, create dynamic �talent pools� of this critical talent that other leaders can leverage, and prepare and develop these high-performing employees for future roles. If this was easy, everyone would be doing it. The problem that exists today is that succession planning is barely automated, let alone optimized.

Whitepaper: HR Data Security: How Secure Is Your SaaS Deployment

by SoftscapeNov 30, 2009

Human Resources (HR) data is one of the most sensitive forms of information any organization maintains. Ensuring the security of this data is therefore critical not only to preserve the sanctity of employees� highly personal information, but also to minimize legal risk to the organization as a whole. This issue takes on even more importance as organizations choose to deploy their talent management systems via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model. With the costs of a data breach estimated at an average of $6.6 million per incident in 2008, organizations need to ensure that they choose vendors that have secure SaaS solutions. The good news is that there are talent management vendors that provide both secure SaaS deployment and on-premise options to ensure strong security for your HR data. This guide on HR data security outlines key issues in evaluating SaaS solutions from talent management vendors and provides questions important to ensure the success of your talent management project. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has become one of the fastest-growing deployment models for talent management applications in the past few years. This success has brought about many benefits including lower up-front fees, reduced administration costs, less burden on IT resources, among others. However, many SaaS vendors neglect the fundamental requirements of ensuring your HR data is as secure as it can be.
