Description

Whether you have a couple of employees or are a multi-national corporate, planning your workforce effectively can mean the difference between profit or loss for your business.

Workforce planning is about making sure our business has the capability and capacity to achieve it's strategic objectives. If we don't have the right people in the right place at the right time, nor the resources required for them to conduct their roles safely and efficiently, we quite simply don't have a business - at least not an effective or profitable one.

Staff turnover can cost us more than 150% of that individual's annual salary, while training and retaining our staff correctly can increase our ROI by 7,000%.

Having an inadequately skilled workforce can cost us millions in injuries, deadline overruns an inefficient working practices; and therefore businesses of all sizes in every sector must take stock of the vital necessity to continuously conduct thorough workforce planning and development for the purposes of achieving the business imperatives.

The problem is, that in the few instances that it does happen, workforce planning and development tends to be left as an isolated and reactive activity within a training or HR department, when actually it is required to take place at a holistic organisational level as training is only a fractional component of the process.

Without a proactive whole-organisation understanding of the existing internal human capability and capacity, versus the future organisational requirements, we will forever be reacting to endless workforce gaps, surpluses and problems instead of building and nurturing a profitable, happy and progressively effective workforce.

Having had over 10 years experience in the training, education and workforce development sector and have helped many organisations plan for their workforce needs; I have put together this course to help learning and development professionals, executive leaders, business owners and anyone else involved in the workforce planning and development process to understand the fundamental steps, sources of data collection and gap filling implementation strategies to effectively manage their current and future workforce needs and skills.
