10 Key Steps to Effective HR Succession Planning


Two forces are driving organizations to consider succession planning as a component of overall strategy: the aging workforce and a shortfall in labor skills. Both factors will only become more pressing as time goes on. That’s why succession planning requires a long-term strategic commitment rather than a short-term (and sometimes panic-driven) effort to fill vacancies as they occur.

The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers


What manufacturers must realize is that through efforts to comply with regulatory standards, they can make their manufacturing operations more competitive. Indeed, compliance is transforming the companies that have taken the time to re-architect the many processes used for managing suppliers, channel partners, resellers, and customers. For manufacturers that ignore compliance, on the other hand, the costs can be steep.

systematic sampling  they take a very systematic approach to creating, sustaining, investing in, and strengthening supply-chain compliance. It is much too large of a task for any manufacturer or global organization to take on alone; the companies accomplishing this adopt more of a strategy of joining efforts with suppliers that are ahead of them in terms of compliance to directives, with RoHS and WEEE being at the forefront of many manufacturers' efforts today.

Growing Small Business F.J. Westcott Gets Help with ERP Software Selection from TEC


F.J. Westcott, a photographic equipment distributor based in Toledo, Ohio (US), recently discovered its legacy system could no longer keep up with its growing business. However, Westcott realized it needed to do its homework before jumping into the purchase of a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Company executives, including chief financial officer (CFO) Jeff Cohen, did just that by attending an ERP Vendor Shootout moderated by Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC). These biannual events are intended to simplify the ERP selection process for companies with manufacturing, distribution, and project-oriented requirements, by hosting top ERP packages demonstrations side by side. Westcott found TEC's comprehensive and structured software evaluation and selection methodology could determine which, out of the hundreds of ERP systems on the market, was the best-fit for its evolving business.
