An Introduction to Workforce Planning
This one-day course highlights why workforce planning is vital to any organisation. It creates a link between strategic goals and effective execution, and enables you to make evidence-based justifications for resourcing as well as highlighting areas your organisation needs to address.
You’ll learn how to answer questions such as:
- where is the ‘organisational fat’? What’s the real number of people we need to deliver on our goals and objectives?
- who are my top talents?
- where are the critical roles within my organisation?
- how are we addressing our diversity and inclusion targets? what is our true capability? Where do we need to upskills, re-deploy, hire or use contingent labour?
By the end of this one-day course you’ll be able to:
- create linkages between business and people strategies
- obtain the buy-In from key influencers
- apply the basics of workforce planning
- create agility to enhance a flexible organisation
- make links and integrate solutions within HR interventions
- prepare for take-away action planning.
