Big Data & Analytics – Availability of an ever-increasing
amount of data presents a challenge for organizations. How can they
distinguish between what is interesting versus what is important? New
technologies and services will help organizations find value in Big
Data via function- and industry-specific analytics tools. Board
members believe these tools will continue to gain attention throughout
2013 as more organizations adopt data-driven workforce management
Mobile – Mobile technologies will continue to transform the way
organizations operate and interact with their employees, customers,
prospects, and the world at large. Tablet devices have taken mobile to
a new level and board members predict that new technologies in this
space – coupled with increased adoption – will continue to
revolutionize the way organizations manage their workforces this year.
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) Compliance –
More commonly referred to as “Obamacare”, PPACA compliance will be a
major focus for many U.S. organizations in 2013. Leadership will need
to determine what the Act means for their organization, understand
associated costs, and make informed decisions about labor scheduling
Managing an intergenerational workforce – A tight economy and
changing notions about the concept of retirement mean that more
workers over the age of 60 are remaining in the workforce for longer.
The usual challenges of attracting and retaining the right workforce
are exacerbated by the increasing age difference in the workforce.
Closing the skills gap – Unemployment is still relatively high,
but many organizations are hiring. Depending on the business, the
current applicant pool may not have the skills that employers seek.
How can this problem best be addressed? Much attention will be paid to
this issue this year with public/private partnerships emerging to help
close the gap.
War for Talent – The Great Recession put the war for talent on
ice, but board members think 2013 may be the year that it heats up
again. As organizations pull out of the economic doldrums and begin to
perform better, employees who have been sitting tight will start
looking for new opportunities. As a result, organizations will need to
be ready to fight for the best and brightest talent.
