• Strategic Workforce Planning and Analytics

What is Workforce Planning?


Workforce planning is a strategic approach to making sure your workforce is aligned with the needs and priorities of your business. It allows for an agile workforce that can quickly and effectively respond to any situation, internal or external.

Without a workforce plan, you waste time and money being reactive to changes in your business and the economy.


Workforce planning concentrates on making data-driven decisions, forecasting workforce needs through predictive modeling, implementing strategies to retain and attract top talent, and monitoring and measuring

success to adjust your strategy long-term. The result...a high-functioning organization without performance gaps.


How it Works


Below is a summary of an effective workforce planning model.

01

Identify Needs & Goals
 

What are the needs and priorities for the business? We will look at your overall business plan, short- and long-term goals, and align with the strategies for success.

02

Collect Data


Workforce analytics look at both internal and external factors that can influence business and use that data to make informed decisions, not reactive ones.

03

Identify Gaps
 

Based on the data collected in Step 2, we can forecast future needs and identify gaps in current workforce in order to plan ahead.

04

Develop Strategies
 

Knowing ahead of time how your going to react to changes in business helps reduce reaction time, make more informed decisions and leads to cost savings by being prepared.

05

Implement Strategies
 

Hiring managers will know what to do instantly when a needs arises. Have a workforce plan allows them to act quickly and effictively without wasting budget dollars on reactive hires.

06

Monitor and Measure

One of the things missing from most workforce programs is the ability to measure results and then optimize future hiring strategies accordingly. Workforce planning solves for both.
