One of the biggest expenses for most companies is it’s payroll and other employee-related costs. However, organization-wide workforce planning can often be a nightmare with issues arising from inconsistent underlying assumptions and differing roster snapshots used in each department. Slalom and Anaplan have developed an end-to-end solution that aims to solve these issues. From enabling HR to administrate the submission and approval of compensation increases across the company to allowing departments to plan for headcount and payroll costs using consistent tax and benefit assumptions, this solution can provide benefits across the organization.
