  2. 2. State of business… Today more than ever the competitive edge in business is most likely gained not through products and services, but human capital. Fact is employees drive your business through a myriad of complex processes. Their efficiency, productivity and performance will impact business outcomes. Consider why companies with a great product under perform in the marketplace. Major trends impacting business today (1)  Rising health care costs and number of individuals and families without coverage  Greater use of outsourcing and off shoring  Demand for work/life balance  Increased production, delivery and consumer costs  Advancement of technology and vulnerability to threat  Retirement of large numbers of baby boomers at around the same time  Identity theft issues  Reduced workforce with static or increased productivity demands  More regulatory oversight  Declining or competitive revenue bases Human capital and its management – Key to success o Many companies do not align key talent management practices such as performance management, career development and succession planning with their Employee Value Proposition (“EVP”). o Organizations are attempting to use total rewards programs to attract and retain talent, but haven’t correctly targeted these programs for diverse employee populations. o Most performance management is appraisal-based instead of developmental and often are not directed toward helping poor performers improve. o Keeping employees engaged, present in the workplace and retaining the best talent must be tied to business goals. How is your organization positioned to address these major trends? At iSolutions we have the experience to partner with your organization to ensure it is prepared to address these trends and be competitive in its market.
