The dynamics of a global economy and the rapid pace at which it changes have made Strategic Workforce Planning one of the “most sought after skills in HR today.” This topic has received an increased executive focus as companies attempt to mitigate the workforce risk in an uncertain economy and deal with the “challenges of change.” The demand for flexible, adaptable strategies translates into a demand for strategic workforce planning that is equally flexible and adaptable. To execute these strategies, leaders need to understand the business strategy and then analyze the ability of their current workforce to actually get them there.
Which roles, competencies and skills will organizations need in the future? What is the difference between the desired future workforce and the current one? Answering these questions with a comprehensive assessment of current employees is a crucial step in the development of any workforce plan. In this session, Tracey Smith will provide an overview of the strategic workforce planning framework and discuss multiple methods of role segmentation and prioritization. In addition, she will demonstrate how use a combination of role segmentation, demographics and succession planning to assess the continuity risk of your leadership.
This session will be good for HR leaders and workforce planning practitioners to attend, especially if they are working to establish the standard workforce planning processes in their own organization.
