July 1, 2019 Denver, CO – Workforce Insight, a world leader in workforce optimization, announced today that it has acquired SMK Workforce Solutions, a recognized leader in workforce management across retail and consumer services markets.
This year’s event was a success, drawing a record number of attendees and featuring industry roundtables, product demos, thought leadership sessions and a host of social events and networking opportunities with colleagues, clients, and WorkForce Software implementation experts.
Data rich and information poor, healthcare providers continue to struggle with how to align their workforce strategy with organizational goals for clinical quality, financial improvement and employee satisfaction –  when everyone (and no one) owns workforce operations.
