Workforce Planning & Strategy

Who Would Benefit
This training course is for those involved in developing organisational strategy and ensuring that your workforce is fit for the future. This programme will help you to navigate how you can predict, plan and shape your workforce to manage short, medium and long-term changes that will be required for your organisation to function effectively.

Course Description
Almost all organisations leave workforce planning until it is too late and then try and adapt existing people and teams to new circumstances that were entirely predictable. This is a coping strategy but there is a much better strategy to adopt and this course will help you to navigate workforce planning as a vital tool for future success.

It will help you to establish a baseline from which you can use evidence-based analytics to create insight which will drive the decision-making process about what your organisation needs to look like in the future.

Workforce planning is about sustainability and resilience and the use of modelling and predictive tools will help you build your workforce strategy (and replace that coping strategy).
