Whether you are starting out with a rough plan for your workforce, or have full details in your HMRS or data systems, Futura enables you to:

  • Inform decisions with high-level or partial data while time is on your side
  • Visualise how the shape and structure of your workforce will evolve
  • Get insights from loosely structured workforce requirements

Define any workforce at any level.

No need to commission models or IT integration projects, or to delay decisions until you can gather all the ‘ideal’ data.

Just decide on the workforce structures and segmentation that you want to consider, name them, and start exploring the future.

Draw on what your existing HRMS system already knows about your workforce.

With Futura Workforce, you can explore how your workforce is going to mature based on what your HRMS already knows about it.

Futura imports data straight from the SalesForce platform, and can be integrated to work seamlessly with other HRMSs as you wish.

Add detail once it becomes available.

See the forest for the trees. Foresee your workforce future – while you still have time to take action.

You can add detail and segmentation later. For example, you can define new divisions or roles, add new levels or grades, segment your workforce by geography or gender, or take a cohort-based view by time in grade or age.

As your plans develop, Futura automatically keeps track, maintaining consistency between your workforce scenarios.

So once you are ready to refine your plans, you can – without needing to re-engineer your models or re-hash data repositories.

Make a molehill out of the mountain of data capture.

Futura applies machine intelligence to your data entry. Plans or assumptions that apply to multiple areas of your organisation only need to be entered once. So you only spend time defining what matters, not entering unnecessary replicated or blank forms.

Use Futura’s API to upload data on your workforce automatically from your own data systems.

Efficient workforce modelling – without the hassle.

Effortlessly create alternative projections of how your workforce will develop and what needs to be done to shape it.

Keep track of where each scenario came from, and what it represents.
