OrcaEyes Client ATK Takes Home Workforce Management's Optimas Award For Innovation

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OrcaEyes, the leader in workforce planning and analytics software and solutions, and its clients are taking organizations to the next level through innovative solutions that drive meaningful business results. While there are several examples of this trend occurring in its customer base, one client, Alliant Techsystems Inc. (ATK), stands out and earlier this month took home Workforce Management's prestigious Optimas Award for Innovation.

ATK is one of OrcaEyes' original clients and, Cory Edmonds, manager of compensation and workforce analytics, has partnered with OrcaEyes on several occasions in an effort to gain more exposure for the use of workforce analytics and planning, and the benefits it delivers to businesses.  At ATK, using predictive analytics to determine workforce behavior enables the Human Resources and Operations teams to work more closely to ensure the business operates smoothly. And with unions having a presence in the organization, Edmonds and team can make better decisions at the negotiating table by reviewing trends to understand how changing benefits or compensation might affect the workforce.

"The work the team at ATK has done is unprecedented and is exactly what Human Resources teams need to be doing to help drive business forward. Predictive analytics and regression analysis are used in every business function -- finance, supply chain, marketing, to name a few -- but most Human Resources teams today are still simply tracking and benchmarking metrics that are only relevant to the Human Resources team," said Dan Hilbert, CEO of OrcaEyes. "To truly understand how metrics like turnover, retirement and recruiting affect the organization; the metrics need to be overlaid on the business outcomes." 

OrcaEyes' philosophy is to help organizations prepare for long-term workforce challenges and then begin to tackle smaller issues one at a time; and ATK is a fine example of how organizations can use workforce analytics to drive results.
