PREDICTING EMPLOYEE FLIGHT RISK
It’s exciting to watch advances in predictive and prescriptive
employee solutions. Workday recently announced the release of an
application enabling employers to “identify which employee is likely
to quit, and what options need to be considered to retain that person”.
Workday is not the first to announce Flight Risk Scores of current
employees. Many top Talent Management solutions have made
similar announcements in the past several months. It’s a step in the
right direction, says Greta Roberts, CEO of Talent Analytics, Corp.

On your way to success, you need guideposts to determine if you are
still on the right path or need a change of direction. That’s where Key
Performance Indicators, or KPIs, come in. KPIs translate complex
measures into clear, actionable metrics, allowing decision-makers to
assess the current situation and move quickly. In an industry that is
constantly changing, KPIs serve as important harbingers of change, says
Carol Murphy, who manages field marketing at Herndon-based Deltek.
Based on your engagements, how often would
you say your firm is meeting your clients’ needs?
