Industry Expert and Speaker, Ms. Melanie Houston, Discusses Workforce Management Challenges Unique to Public Sector
Livonia, Mich., March 20, 2009 – WorkForce Software, Inc., a leader in workforce management software solutions, announces its March Learning Series webinar, “Workforce Management Best Practices in the Public Sector.” Our speaker, Ms. Melanie Houston, director of strategic solutions for human capital management advisory firm Workforce Insight, reviews the unique challenges faced by government entities and school districts, and provides practical, time-tested strategies that help streamline the implementation process, boost user adoption, and generate higher returns from technology investments.
Most workforce management software acquisitions have expectations built on the promise of substantial ROI gains, smooth automation, and performance improvements, but many public entities find themselves knee deep in a sluggish or stalled implementation process, where executive support has waned, user acceptance is poor, and marginal gains are limited to enhancements in payroll accuracy and efficiency. Ms. Houston outlines the top pitfalls that derail most public sector implementation projects, and best practice strategies to avoid them.
Throughout this webinar, Ms. Houston draws on her expertise from within the public sector, including her early role as an Officer in the U.S. Air Force. Her more recent implementation project leadership includes the States of Colorado and New Mexico, Public School systems in Colorado and Texas, Counties and Municipalities in California and Nevada, and the University of Washington. Melanie earned her BA in Business Economics from the University of California and her MBA from the University of New Mexico, Anderson Schools of Management.
“Public sector organizations require complex workforce management solutions to efficiently and effectively manage their workforce, and WorkForce Software has made a significant investment to support their rules and manage compliance,” said President and CEO Kevin Choksi of WorkForce Software. “We are excited to offer this webinar to government and educational organizations this month.”
