This management process includes all the necessary aspects to maintain a more productive workforce, carrying out the management of services, human resources, performance and training, data collection and analysis, recruitment, budgeting, forecasting, scheduling and analysis.


WFM is sometimes referred to as HRM systems, or workforce asset management, or parts of ERP systems. However, it must be understood that WFM provides a performance-based set of tools and software to support corporate management, such as front-line supervisors, store managers, and workers in distribution, transportation, and retail manufacturing operations.
