New HR Professional Development Centre to Fill People Analytics Education Gap 2017-07-19T01:55:52Z new-hr-professional-development-centre-to-fill-people-analytics-education-gap SYDNEY, Australia – 19 July 2017 – Aiming to fill the training and education gap in the emerging discipline of People Analytics, Australian-based specialist provider of workforce management and analytics solutions RITEQ has today launched its RITEQ Education Centre. RITEQ’s diverse offering provides practical tools and services that assist first-timers in people analytics through to those seeking in-depth specialist advice. This launch marks the release RITEQ’s People Analytics education program – a series of toolkits, webinars, workshops, blended learning programs and consulting services designed to expedite an organisation’s introduction to and implementation of People Analytics. “What’s really exciting about the RITEQ Education Centre toolkits is that we can help a HR department with a traditional operational focus quickly begin to leverage data and tools to deliver clear, strategic value to the business,” said Stephen Moore, General Manager Education and Capability – People Analytics, RITEQ. “The toolkits are outcome focused around challenges the HR team and business commonly face.” More Than Just a Data Science Skills Shortage – There’s a People Analytics Education Shortage “Australian organisations are not yet adequately equipped to perform People Analytics,” said David Kroser, Managing Director, RITEQ, “and risk falling behind the UK, Europe and the US – markets that are well ahead in their understanding of the considerable business value of this emerging discipline.” “For years we have been hearing about a ‘big data’ or data science skills shortage in Australia,” said Kroser. “That is compounded in the area of People Analytics by a general lack of education and professional development opportunities around workforce data analytics and strategic planning. At RITEQ, we are taking considerable steps to change that.” Supporting the Metamorphosis of the Modern HR Department It differs from business to business and from industry to industry, of course, but labour costs can easily represent up to 60 per cent, if not more, of an organisations annual expenses. Who is analysing that cost? How are organisations understanding and managing that cost? RITEQ contends it must be the role of the HR department to facilitate this business analysis.  The RITEQ Education Centre, available now in Australia and around the world, is focused on building the analytical and strategic capabilities of the HR department, as it elevates its role in the business from operational to strategic.  Toolkits Any business that wants to get started with People Analytics can do so using RITEQ’s set of People Analytics Toolkits, which – as a whole – provide the training and proven tools developed from decades of experience and expertise to deliver twelve effective and relevant reports. Currently the toolkits fit into the Workforce Management & Performance layer of People Analytics and can assist HR departments with measuring, reporting and advising on focus areas like turnover and absenteeism, health and safety, governance and compliance and more.  A savvy head of HR would assign team members specific areas of People Analytics to focus on, and leverage the toolkits to enable the department to add workforce management value in the short term and form a base on which to develop Workforce Planning capabilities.   Webinars  A series of People Analytics Webinars will drill down into specific aspects of people analytics order to provide more in-depth knowledge and understanding to inform and enable better outcomes Workshops RITEQ’s custom designed People Analytics Workshops focus on Process Design Facilitation, helping an organisation develop the strategy, processes and action plan required to implement People Analytics effectively, in response to its specific business needs, objectives and desired outcomes.  Moore said, “After many years of providing face-to-face HR metrics training across ANZ and Southeast Asia it has long been a dream of mine to have the opportunity to create an education centre like this, because the education system – here and elsewhere – doesn’t embrace people analytics in either undergrad or post graduate programs.” For more information, visit https://www.riteqeducationcentre.com and purchase courses from RITEQ’s People Analytics curriculum online.  A New Driving Force Delivering Accessible People Analytics 2016-10-12T23:22:59Z a-new-driving-force-delivering-accessible-people-analytics SYDNEY, Australia – 13 October 2016 – Leading Australian workforce management and analytics solution provider, RITEQ, today announced the acquisition of pre-eminent human capital metrics and analytics specialists, Optimum Performance as part of the company’s expanding offering in the people analytics space.   Complementing its long established reputation in operational workforce management that is used by more than 350 organisations in 15,000 sites across more than 10 countries, and having already added data science and analytics to its offering, RITEQ now makes a formidable move into the people analytics space. “It has been RITEQ’s long-standing vision to use our existing workforce management platform and recently acquired BI tools and skills as the foundation upon which to deliver world-class people analytics that are accessible to organisations of all sizes,” said Managing Director David Kroser. “The acquisition of Optimum Performance brings on board unique and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of human capital metrics and analysis. Together we will continue to create best-of-breed solutions answering to the specific needs of end-users across the organisation.” “People analytics, as a true business discipline, brings together all the people related data from across the organisation, to inform and contribute to strategic decisions and planning, solve problems and support organisational objectives. We truly understand what CEOs, HR professionals and line managers are – and should be – seeking from their HR and other employee data,” said Kroser.     Led by people analytics guru Stephen Moore, over the past two decades Optimum Performance has assisted a diverse range of organisations throughout Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and South Africa in formulating, designing and executing highly effective workforce reporting, forecasting and planning strategies that inform and enable optimum workforce performance. Its impressive client base includes large corporations like Caltex, Fonterra, Cabrini Health, RHB Bank Malaysia & Leighton Construction through to public sector agencies such as Sydney Water & Court Services Victoria, plus extensive work with more than 50 councils in the local government sector.       “Given that in most organisations the annual labour bill meets or exceeds 60% of total operating expenditure, surely it makes sense that HR departments provide meaningful management reporting that facilitates improved workforce efficiency & effectiveness,” said Stephen Moore. “Not only will people analytics improve bottom line performance, but it will also transform the role of the HR team from an operational support function to that of value-added business partners,” he said.  RITEQ will progressively release a range of software solutions that will enable every organisation to evaluate and improve its workforce performance, planning and business contribution. “And just as importantly, we will be delivering a comprehensive education program to ensure HR professionals can effectively execute and deliver on the desired results,” said David Kroser. “We are excited not only about the contribution we can make to optimised workforce performance,” he said, “but to enhancing HR department effectiveness so they can gain greater recognition for the vital and evolving role they play within the organisation.”   RITEQ Acquires SeeMoreData to launch RITEQ Analytics 2015-09-07T00:33:55Z riteq-acquires-seemoredata-to-launch-riteq-analytics SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 7 September 2015 – Australian specialised Workforce Management solution provider, RITEQ, has acquired Australian data science and analytics firm SeeMoreData, the creators of business intelligence and analytics platform, BI Plus. It is a move that will not only leverage big data analytics technology to create new revenue streams for RITEQ, but will respond to both the market and RITEQ’s customers’ need for business analytics integrated with a robust workforce management solution. “There has been an obvious evolution in the market towards a requirement for big data, and we’ve been seeing very strong drivers for data analytics amongst organisations of all sizes,” said David Kroser, Managing Director, of RITEQ. “In response, we have taken steps to acquire the data science expertise and technology to incorporate an analytics module within our RITEQ Workforce Management product and to add a standalone analytics division to our business.” “The founder of SeeMoreData, Ferenc Mantfeld is a highly specialised data scientist and a real thought leader in business intelligence. He came out of Siebel and Oracle, from the tier one business intelligence world. We are very excited to have him and his team of analysts on board and will make his very scalable BI solution available to businesses or all sizes,” said Kroser. RITEQ assumed the operation of SeeMoreData, as a new analytics division within RITEQ, from 1st September 2015 and all existing SeeMoreData staff are being retained. “I began SeeMoreData with a vision of making data accessible at all levels of business, to allow organisations to radically change the decision-making process,” said Mantfeld. “I am very excited to join RITEQ and about the future prospects for development of our business intelligence and analytics platform with a renewed focus on that vision and my passion for data science.” A Game Changer for RITEQ and SeeMoreData Customers, Alike Existing and new RITEQ customers will be able to take advantage of the RITEQ Analytics solution, integrated into RITEQ Workforce Manager as a module that will be made available early in 2016. It will offer out of the box dashboard analytics on all workforce management data within RITEQ. Organisations will also be able to feed other data sources into the analytics tool to combine workforce data with data from other key sources such as point of sale, payroll, HR, financial, traffic counting and other relevant systems. “RITEQ Analytics will allow clients to derive and analyse data relative to labour, overlaid with all the other departmental and operational data that is available,” said Kroser. “This is going to add enormous value to clients seeking to more effectively manage their workforce and their businesses to reduce costs, increase productivity and grow revenue.” SeeMoreData’s existing customers include very large, data-rich fortune 500 companies. “They can rest assured that the business analytics platform that has added such value to their organisations is now backed by a much larger and well-resourced organisation that will continue to develop and enhance the business analytics solution to their benefit,” said Kroser. “RITEQ will continue to invest in the development roadmap of the analytics platform.” The Road Ahead: Enhanced Workforce Planning RITEQ is part of an emerging trend, where organisations are waking up to the importance and potential of strategic workforce planning. Workforce planning is about looking at the next five or ten years and assessing, forecasting and designing what that is going to look like for your organisation from a Human Resource point of view.  What people will you need in what areas of the business? Where do you need succession planning? What skills do you need to develop or find? Access to the right data and business analytics, allowing for informed decision-making, is vital to effectively achieve that level of planning. “We will take our newly acquired analytics platform in the direction of creating a specialised workforce planning set of KPI dashboards that tie into our workforce management information, as well as into HR, financial, payroll and other operational information to facilitate informed, effective, cutting edge workforce planning,” said Kroser. ###
