Succession Planning Can Help Develop A Diverse Workforce and Train Future Leaders

To implement an effective succession plan for replacing employees who age out of the workplace, companies must identify and prepare suitable employees for future leadership and other roles through mentoring, training, and job rotation.  Succession planning requires that companies develop a process for recruiting and retaining employees while developing their skills and abilities and preparing them for advancement.Successful succession planning prepares employees for new leadership positions so that an employee who has been trained effectively can immediately take the place of an employee who leaves.  Workplace diversity can also be increased through succession planning when HR and department decision makers plan for the future composition of the company as a whole.

Managing Remote Teams in Latin America: Setting Goals and Meeting Deadlines

Managers in charge of remote Latin American teams often report having difficulty getting their employees to meet deadlines, but this failure to complete projects on time may have little to do with the tired stereotype about Latinos always being late.

Judge rejects student visa injunction sought by H-1B opponents

A ruling from a U.S. district court judge in New Jersey has blocked an attempt by H-1B visa opponents to stop an extension of student visas from one year to 29 months. The measure, which was put in place earlier this year, was a move that the Bush administration claimed would give students a better chance to get an H-1B visa. The 85,000-visa cap, which includes 20,000 visas for foreign workers with advanced degrees, is being reached before the close of the academic year, making it difficult for new graduates to get a new visa before their old visa expires.


The Programmers Guild, the Immigration Reform Law Institute and other groups sought an injunction to stop the visa extension, arguing that such a measurer is, in effect, a backdoor visa increase that will hurt U.S. workers.

Breaking Staffing Down To A Science

Workforce planning is necessary for companies to ensure that their critical staffing needs are met in a timely and efficient manner. Effective workforce planning involves evaluating the various business goals a company may have, forecasting demand and the supply of talent, and ensuring that the company will incorporate these variables into a plan that will not only be in step with its long term strategic goals, but will also be an active force in helping the company achieve those goals.

In order to effectively and efficiently implement successful and sustainable workforce plans, companies must anticipate the strategic needs and long term goals of a business and develop a plan to meet the staffing levels necessary to achieve those goals. From the executive suite to the human resources department to the manufacturing floor, company leaders must work together to develop a set of best practices for long term workforce planning that are flexible enough to be quickly and effectively modified as the company’s strategic plan is adjusted.

Ten HR Positions Expected to Experience Growth Through 2016

Higher level executives don’t necessarily have the luxury or the opportunity of being able to communicate directly and consistently with employees.  They are rarely able to develop and maintain close relationships with any of their employees, with the exception of those that work closest with them.  Enter the Human Resources professional, the liaison between employees and executives, and in many cases the sounding board for both employee and executive complaints and feedback.  Besides handling such tasks as hiring, benefits, and payroll, Human Resources professionals also play an integral part in helping executives understand the needs of their employees and how to optimize employee performance.

Hispanic Population Increase Brings Surge in Demand for Bilingual Teachers, Health Care Workers

In nearly every state that has experienced a consistent increase in their Hispanic population, demand for bilingual employees in education and health care has increased in step, because the increase in Hispanics has created a new demand for services that were previously scarce or did not exist. Bilingual employees in the areas of teaching and health care have become so sought after in states like South Carolina, which experienced the largest percentage increase in Hispanic residents in the nation, that the state has had to look overseas to recruit bilingual teachers.

Since 1998, Greenville County School District, which is located in South Carolina’s most populous county, the amount of Hispanic students in need of bilingual teachers has increased tenfold. The number of teachers designated to teach English for Speakers of Other Languages has also increased by 1000 percent over the same time period.
