Oregonia, OH, April 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Talent Strategy Advisors has published Breakthrough Workforce Strategy: Talent Insights and Proven Practices for a Competitive Difference by Eric J. Seubert. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the business, economics, accounting and finances category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/breakthrough was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
If an organization is not operating as effectively as it should, it could be because of issues like procurement cost overruns, customer complaints or shrinking market share. Some in the organization might even be wondering when the competition will overtake it in revenues. These issues are not process or technology related; they are something different.
Demographics, retirements and lifestyles are triggering a shortage of critical skills. Some organizations are extending their searches and accepting short-run vacancies, while others are hiring under-qualified workers. In both cases, the outcome is similar - a workforce producing marginal results.
Breakthrough Workforce Strategy was written as an executive toolkit for thinking strategically about critical skill shortages. Its insights and proven practices are more than the product of creative thinking. They are the result of intense analytics and uncommon observations about the workforce. With Breakthrough Workforce Strategy, executives have a toolkit to further develop competencies for:
- Understanding the sweeping nature of the skilled worker shortage
- Integrating a Workforce Strategy with business objectives
- Evaluating positions critical to operations and profitability
- Examining internal workforce supply threats
- Assessing external workforce supply and demand threats
- Predicting the impact of demographic trends on workforce supply and demand balances
- Analyzing meaningful demographic segments for solution opportunities
These tolls will help build an organization’s response to the critical skills shortage in less time and with greater business impact.
“In a world of growing commoditization, talent is the key differentiator for a company's future. This book demonstrates that workforce issues are no longer an HR challenge. They are a business challenge and this book is a must read for every C-suite officer. The faster executives understand Eric Seubert’s approach to workforce challenges, the faster they will pull away from the pack.”
-David P. Spencer, Senior Vice President & Business Unit Head, WNS
“Eric Seubert has distilled the ingredients of successful workforce strategy into simple and powerful insights that can launch any organization towards a healthier bottom-line. Breakthrough Workforce Strategy is simply the best book written to date on this subject. A must read for any CEO, Human Resources Executive or business leader seeking to gain a competitive advantage in the New Economy.”
-Vince Daniels, Vice President, Human Resources, Reinhart Food Service L.L.C
"It's unbelievable to have a talent shortage in a high unemployment environment. Eric Seubert’s understanding of the challenge and his ‘full employment by occupation’ metric has really been an eye-opener! We are using his insight of identifying key roles with a limited or non-existent external talent pool to guide our internal planning and development efforts. His expertise on workforce trends has challenged our thinking concerning our future workforce and what we fundamentally need to do today to prepare for the future."
-Robyn Helmer-Tallon, Vice President Human Resources Midwest & Colorado, Peabody Energy
“Eric Seubert has taken the complications and challenges of strategic workforce planning to a very understandable level. The personal approach and business practicality he has outlined fits any business model in any economic state, domestically and globally. Don’t just read this book, take his advice and apply this methodology!”
-Quinn Thompson, Director, Global Talent Acquisition, International Paper
