TEDS Releases New Version of Talent Management Suite with Workforce Planning and Management Module

Atkins, VA – November 12, 2009 –TEDS®, Inc., originator of the organic, fully integrated Talent Management solution, today released version 9.1 of its Talent Management Suite. The suite’s newest module, TEDS Workforce Management, provides companies with another key competitive advantage.

“Intelligent workforce planning and management are critical to gaining and preserving a competitive advantage in the marketplace,” said Joe Ellis, chief executive of TEDS. “That is why we have always had strategic workforce planning capabilities built into the TEDS Talent Management Suite. In this new module however, we have made all these functions and capabilities easily accessible via our new workforce manager dashboard. This puts unprecedented power, effectiveness and ease at the fingertips of workforce planners.”

TEDS Workforce Planning & Management enables organizations to define corporate business initiatives, measure workforce readiness to accomplish business goals, manage the progress toward initiative completion and track hiring for these initiatives. This new module leverages existing talent data and interacts with all other modules of the TEDS Talent Management suite to deliver a new dimension in workforce management.

“TEDS Workforce Planning & Management enables workforce planners to create strategies and initiate actions that ensure workers gain the necessary knowledge and skills to meet organizational goals,” said Lynda Helton, TEDS’ vice president for research and development. “Workforce planners and managers can monitor the progress of employees toward competency achievement, skill gap closure and organizational readiness for individual projects and for overarching business initiatives across the enterprise.”
The new module minimizes the negative effects of external forces on enterprise performance including fluctuations in the economy, new regulations, increased competition, and market demands for new or improved products or services, while pre-empting reactionary responses to these market influences.

Organizations can use TEDS to ensure that their workforce planning and management strategy aligns with and supports their overall talent management strategy. Company-wide workforce planning easily replaces fractionalized planning by different departments or business units.

TEDS Workforce Planning & Management ensures an organization’s talent is ready when needed.

A component of the TEDS suite of integrated, single-platform software solutions, TEDS Workforce Planning and Management provides its own powerful capabilities while also wrapping around all other TEDS Talent Management Modules to access and leverage employee data residing in those modules.

TEDS’ latest release provides enhancements to other software modules, including TEDS’ RTC Power™ (roles, tasks and competency management) and TEDS Job Vision™, which manages staffing and talent acquisition.
