Workforce Insight to Present Change Management, Hosting Three Workforce Management Sessions at the American Payroll Association's 27th Annual Congress

Workforce Insight, the leading provider of workforce management consulting and implementation services, announced today that the company will conduct three educational sessions at the American Payroll Association's (APA) 27th Annual Congress next week at the Long Beach Convention Center in California.

"The APA Congress has long been considered the premier event for the payroll industry, providing an excellent forum for industry experts and best practice organizations to share insights and success," said Mike Race, Director of Workforce Management Consulting. "Our thought leaders have developed interactive workshops to arm HR, finance, and payroll experts with turn-key advice for tackling stay-awake issues that affect nearly every business today."

Workforce Insight is routinely invited to conduct industry seminars and workshops and provide leading organizations with best practice guidance on workforce management initiatives to improve business performance. Last month, the company presented ''Avoiding Top Pitfalls that Derail HR Implementations'' at the IHRIM Conference to HR executives and systems professionals from around the world. Next week, leaders from the firm's strategic services group will present strategies for ''Harnessing the Power of Workforce Management Technology'' in Houston. Three weeks later, advisors from the firm's Retail WFM Consulting Practice will deliver a grocery leadership workshop on ''Driving Workforce Performance through Superior Execution Management''.

At this year's APA Congress, experts from the company's workforce management consulting group and government practice will also be available at Booth # 1016 to field questions and provide independent guidance as attendees navigate the myriad of solutions available in the exhibit hall.
