Making sure that we have the right people in the right place with the right level of skills at the right time to deliver both short and long term objectives requires information and insight. This need has sparked a growing interest in workforce planning. Organisations have identified a compelling need to be able to ‘shape’ and skill themselves to deal with both expected and unexpected events: as well as to control costs without damaging competitiveness. Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) supports these objectives in the quest to become flexible and agile. SWP is a core process of human resource management. It helps HR Professionals to provide insight to an organisation’s competitive advantage through people. This session will cover some of the objectives, principles and models used in SWP, together with case studies of best practice.
