Introduction

Attend this masterclass to get to grips with a new fully integrated approach to strategic workforce planning drawing in all the different facets to this business critical process. Not only does it explore the core components to workforce planning, this masterclass also shows how to move the approach from backroom black box operations to gaining a place in the organization’s strategic development process. Furthermore this top level approach will then inform the organization’s resourcing, talent management and talent development strategies.

This training seminar will highlight:

  • The breadth of activity that is incorporated in modern workforce planning
  • The need for broad stakeholder involvement in planning and implementing workforce planning
  • Workforce planning will depend on the business strategy of the organization
  • The need to create a flexible workforce
  • The need to adopt evidence-based HR practices
  • The need for both a broad mindset and the ability to collaborate across the organisation

Objectives

This masterclass aims to show you how to move from traditional manpower planning to modern strategic workforce planning, raising your profile and the effectiveness of the process.

At the end of this training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Apply appropriate workforce planning tools and techniques to your business strategy
  • Review your own practices and make appropriate changes
  • Think both strategically and tactically to enable effective workforce planning
  • Understand the core HR components of modern workforce planning to ensure alignment
  • Overcome challenges to effective workforce planning and build on enablers
  • Apply good ideas from colleagues from other organisations

Training Methodology

Material will be presented by short presentation, case studies, and video clips aided by facilitation, and questioning to get the maximum learning from information presented. Discussion groups/action learning sets will also feature strongly for delegates to be able to share their knowledge and experience with the wider group in both learning about content (the ‘what’) as well as process (the ‘how’).

Organisational Impact

Chief Executives, around the world, say workforce planning is one of the big things that keeps them awake at night. Organisations that send delegates on this masterclass will benefit from the following:

  • A realization that strategic workforce planning is a key business process and the one that drives much of HR activity
  • An understanding of what a range of organisations do that may change the way strategic workforce planning is done
  • Clarity on what needs to be done next either to start strategic workforce planning or improve existing processes
  • Practical examples that delegates can take back and use in their workplace
  • Getting ahead of the curve as strategic workforce planning correlates unambiguously with realizing business strategy and achieving desired business results.

Personal Impact

This is a career development opportunity for people involved in workforce planning to increase their knowledge and confidence in being able to take practical recommendations back to work and so progress their careers.

Particular benefits for participants are:

  • Understanding the breadth of workforce planning to be able to make refinements to existing practices
  • Reflection on current practice with the opportunity to add new ideas to the organization
  • Facilitated discussion to solve current problems faced by delegates at work
  • Rethink how current HR practices might be changed to enable career progression.
