What is Strategic Workforce Planning?
Strategic Workforce Planning is all about aligning an organisation’s future workforce to its’ business strategy. Every organization is heading towards a future determined by its current trends and practices, as well as factors outside the organisation – An aging population, education trends, and the changing nature of employee / employer relationships mean that this path will often not be the one that leads the organization to future success. Many organizations sense this, but do not have a framework or tools to understand and analyse it – let alone to make the changes necessary to alter that future. That framework, and those tools, are Strategic Workforce Planning. Best practice Strategic Workforce Planning has potential to increase profit margins by 50% (Boston Consulting Group), and is a key performance driver for successful organizations (Project Management Institute)
