Why You Should Attend

Strategic Workforce Planning & Optimisation

According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), productivity gains have declined in recent years, Australia is struggling with low productivity growth. This coupled with high labour wages, wide skill skips, increasing automation and aging workforce has led to more and more businesses looking into strategizing and approaching workforce optimization in a more holistic way to remain relevant in the coming years.

Organisations are striving to optimize their workforce to improve operational agility and productivity, reduce redundant costs and boost workforce morale with limited resources. The thin line that separates successes and failures lies in the strength and robustness of organisations’ Strategic Workforce Planning and this has a lot to do with forecasting accurately the future workforce demand and supply.

Strategic Workforce Planning & Optimisation event will take you from vision to action, going from conceptual theories to a more practical step-by-step approach leading you to the real workforce optimisation. Here, you will learn how to develop an effective strategy leading to consistent productivity, retaining critical talent and addressing skill gaps to future-proof your workforce and more. You will hear from international gurus on Strategic Workforce Planning and many other industry experts in Australia – this conference is not to be missed!
