Workforce planning

Now is the time to link your strategy to your people, and bring strategic workforce planning, organization modeling and operational workforce planning into one place.

Why now?

Digital disruption. Customer expectations. Market shifts. Competition. The great resignation. Skills gap… the list of change drivers is long.

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.

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.

Benefits of workforce planning

Effective workforce planning drives productivity

Studies have shown that effective workforce planning can double productivity. But what exactly do we mean by ‘effective workforce planning’ and what does it include?

  • A process that aligns the deployment of your workforce to deliver strategic business goals
  • A planning baseline that segments the workforce into key organizational dimensions and understands current cost and headcount
  • The ability to instantly identify gaps between workforce supply and demand over time
  • The ability to model and assign the right people with the right skills to appropriate work
  • Continuous monitoring of progress against both the workforce and business plan, and the ability to course correct as things change
