For today’s organizations, change is constant and unpredictable, and changing your business means changing the workforce to suit. The time has come for businesses to link their workforce to their business strategy. To think resilience, agility, and shorter planning cycles. In other words, to think continuous workforce planning.
In this ebook, we unpack some of the practicalities of adopting continuous workforce planning and shortening your planning cycles. We’ll set out the steps to a faster, data-driven workforce planning process that will position your organization to respond quickly to uncertainty and change.
What is workforce planning?
Workforce planning is the process of identifying what an organization is going to need in terms of workforce skills, capability and cost to achieve its objective, and planning for that in both the short and long term. It connects strategy to people, and enables different teams to work together towards a common vision.
