AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OrcaEyes, the leader in workforce
planning and analytics software and solutions, and its clients are taking
organizations to the next level through innovative solutions that drive
meaningful business results. While there are several examples of this trend
occurring in its customer base, one client, Alliant Techsystems Inc. (ATK),
stands out and earlier this month took home Workforce Management's prestigious
Optimas Award for Innovation.

ATK is one of OrcaEyes' original clients and, Cory Edmonds, manager of
compensation and workforce analytics, has partnered with OrcaEyes on several
occasions in an effort to gain more exposure for the use of workforce
analytics and planning, and the benefits it delivers to businesses. At ATK,
using predictive analytics to determine workforce behavior enables the Human
Resources and Operations teams to work more closely to ensure the business
operates smoothly. And with unions having a presence in the organization,
Edmonds and team can make better decisions at the negotiating table by
reviewing trends to understand how changing benefits or compensation might
affect the workforce.

"The work the team at ATK has done is unprecedented and is exactly what Human
Resources teams need to be doing to help drive business forward. Predictive
analytics and regression analysis are used in every business function --
finance, supply chain, marketing, to name a few -- but most Human Resources
teams today are still simply tracking and benchmarking metrics that are only
relevant to the Human Resources team," said Dan Hilbert, CEO of OrcaEyes. "To
truly understand how metrics like turnover, retirement and recruiting affect
the organization; the metrics need to be overlaid on the business outcomes."

OrcaEyes' philosophy is to help organizations prepare for long-term workforce
challenges and then begin to tackle smaller issues one at a time; and ATK is a
fine example of how organizations can use workforce analytics to drive
