Industry Intelligence supports corporate clients with dynamic workforce development strategy; business professionals transitioning to new roles can navigate unfamiliar marketplaces using interactive intelligence map, collaborate using MS Teams plug-ins

LOS ANGELES , September 10, 2020 (press release) –

Professionals today are changing jobs at a fast pace. The Bureau of Labor Statistics finds that young adults have held 4.5 jobs by age 22 and over eight jobs by age 32. Employees aim to build skills with each job change. To avoid institutional knowledge loss, smart companies retain talent by offering lateral transfer that benefits both the employee and the employer.

Industry competition today requires companies to be agile and be always ready for new situations. “This requires developing knowledge workers,” says Rami Ghandour, CEO of Industry Intelligence. “Companies invest in building their human capital. But broad lateral transfers can backfire if the employees assuming new roles can’t come up to speed quickly.”
 
Lacking an infrastructure that provides efficient information access is often cited as an obstacle to productivity. The Economist Group and Citrix Systems find that people spend 25 percent of the workday looking for information they need to do their job.  
 
To help corporations build efficiency, Industry Intelligence collaborates with clients to understand how professionals in different roles view the market. Industry Intelligence’s information mapping system allows users to seamlessly switch views and see emerging trends from all angles.  
 
For instance, users of the Packaging view can toggle to a Logistics view, a Foodservice view, a Personal Care view or a Sustainability view. One can also instantly switch from viewing product design images to news about material innovation or sustainable sourcing or consumer experience.
 
“A product engineer can become a sales leader. A supply chain manager can be inserted into the sustainability team,” says Ghandour. “Our C-level executive clients tell us that they want their employees to hit the ground running soon after they’re deployed to their new roles. Our interactive map provides mission-critical guidance for these professionals in a fast-paced and fluid environment.”
 
The build-to-order market intelligence map is also accessible via the popular workplace chat platform Microsoft Teams, with an on-demand search bot.
 
“Intelligence sharing can happen spontaneously and smoothly within Microsoft Teams,” explains Ghandour. “There is no need for our clients to stop an ongoing work chat, go to Google, comb through disparate websites and then copy-and-paste messy texts back into the chat, where the topic of discussion might have already moved on.”
 
For over 20 years, Industry Intelligence has been at the forefront of making market pulses and insights available at subscribers’ fingertips, enabling timely and informed decision-making.
