Workforce analytics has become an essential business tool for leading companies that view workforce performance as the key to improving company results, according to a new global survey of business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytics Services. Workforce analytics is a set of integrated capabilities (technologies, metrics, data, and processes) to measure and improve workforce performance. The goal is simple: put the right people with the right skills in the right work, provide them with the necessary training and development opportunities, and engage and empower them to perform at their highest possible level.

Two trends are pushing all lines of business—across all industries—toward cloud IT. First, IT is being stretched more than ever. IT organizations are expected to expand services and meet tighter SLAs while having fewer resources, personnel, and skills to work with. With the IT queue growing longer than ever, both IT and LOB leaders are interested in using the cloud to quickly deploy the services users need. For most IT organizations, the current way of doing business does not map to growth or enable the flexibility to compete in the digital age. Rigid and periodic hardware-refresh cycles cannot adequately scale, and applications built for on-premises resources using traditional development and management tools are no longer flexible enough to deliver the agility businesses need to grow or compete.

Cloud is becoming an essential ingredient to a successful IT infrastructure. Recent research by IDC has identified how the growth of cloud as a computing platform has magnified the importance of cloud skills to the success of the enterprise. Moreover, it is becoming clear that IT professionals with cloud skills are strongly influencing both the type of cloud infrastructure and the ultimate pace of adoption of cloud. This puts IT professionals with cloud skills in the driver's seat of their own career. In fact, IT professionals with certifications related to cloud development and operations have dramatically more influence over their organizations' adoption and expansion of cloud services than otherwise similar IT professionals have over the adoption of other types of technical solutions. Cloud skills accelerate the success and career path of IT professionals. The impactful cloud roles are diverse: Multicloud or hybrid cloud management, workload-centric management, and DevOps illustrate

Coaching is all about maximising performance, regardless of whether it’s a superstar looking to reach greater heights, a new hire wanting to start off on the right foot, or even a struggling employee who needs to improve. Anyone can be a coach, as long as they have certain intangible skills and receive the proper training. The company, coach, and employee need to agree on what to improve, how to do it, and how to define success. As long as everyone is on the same page and dedicated to professional development, the end result will be employees, and a bottom line, that reach their potential. But how can you ensure that everyone from seasoned veterans to new hires reach their full potential? By offering coaching. Over 70% of employees who received coaching saw an increase in work performance, relationships, and communication skills, and 80% reported having more self-confidence.
