Workforce Planning: Diversity and Succession

The nature of work in the 21st century is changing at a rapid pace with the emergence of new and fast moving technological advancements continually impacting how people do everything. There is a growing need for organisations to adopt a more strategic approach to managing their workforce. The “people component” within the workforce is typically the highest cost item in the budget and the single largest driver of business outcomes. Corporate budgets are tightening, and as a result, managers need to equip themselves with more powerful tools to maximise distribution of the workforce and assess employee performance, while business leaders need more accurate views on operational performance and business productivity. Although most companies recognise the importance of workforce planning, many still struggle with proper execution to create a more agile and resilient workforce.

This 2-day training on Workforce Planning is specifically structured to address the most critical issues and concerns within most organisations; better management of their most vital intangible asset – their people. The sessions include properly thought through, integrated and appropriately applied people management strategies and practices, customised to particular organisational circumstances which are the most powerful drivers of sustainable success. This workshop will assist you to develop and monitor workforce planning as a continual business process. You will take away practical tools to assess current workforce needs and workforce risks, and identify the right skill sets and capabilities you need for the future success of the business.
