From Our CEO, Jim Burke
As CEO of Workforce Logiq, I see three critical challenges that workforce management providers must address. First, incredible disruption in how we’ve all been doing business, which is making competing for and managing talent exponentially more complex.
Second, a clear client mandate for workforce management partners to step up—to do more to help organizations efficiently and cost-effectively win the talent they need to grow.
And third, much higher client expectations for how workforce management providers invest in and deliver more innovative solutions—especially in using advanced technologies to increase talent quality, retention, and program cost efficiency.
It is based on these challenges that we have formed Workforce Logiq’s mission: To reimagine and transform how you win the talent you need to grow–now and into the future–by combining and investing in:
Preparing our clients for the future today is particularly exciting for us since, for the most part, HR and procurement teams have not yet experienced the exponential efficiency gains that are being realized in other industries using advanced data science and machine learning. That’s where we will continue to excel and deliver superior results for our clients.
On behalf of the Workforce Logiq team, I want to thank our clients around the world for the trust they put in us every day with their most valuable asset—their people. For those of you just getting to know Workforce Logiq, I appreciate your time and consideration. I hope you’ll take a closer look at some of the terrific work we’re doing to make HR and Procurement leaders’ jobs easier and more productive.
I look forward to having more in-depth conversations with you to understand how we can deliver on our promise of “intelligence at work.”
