Organizational Strategy and Analytics

Empowering Employers with Data-Driven Results

Building a workforce for the future requires data-driven insights to spot trends, identify and mitigate risks, and create programs that attract and retain the best. At the same time, increasingly aggressive legal and regulatory developments are making new demands on employer policies, compliance and reporting.

While some organizations are already seizing the strategic potential of data to achieve their workforce and compliance goals, others are just getting started with the foundational steps of gathering, processing and analyzing employee data for baseline insights.

No matter where your organization is on this continuum, you need a strategic partner who can offer sophisticated statistical analyses coupled with superior legal counsel. Whether your primary focus is protecting and defending your brand, remaining in compliance with federal and state regulations or implementing an “employer-of-choice” strategy, Seyfarth can meet you where you are and help you achieve your goals with focused, effective, data-driven solutions.
