Event Calendar / How to Launch a Successful Workforce Planning Center of Expertise (COE)
Details & Time Frame
How to Launch a Successful Workforce Planning Center of Expertise (COE)
Workforce planning is the topic du jour of senior HR and business executives across the globe. More and more organizations are focused on implementing strategic workforce planning but have very little practical experience in designing and implementing such programs. There is plenty of market research and consulting advice on effective workforce planning "models" around demand/supply/gap, but very little research and advice on how to deploy such models through a Center of Expertise (COE) approach.

Many organizations have created COEs charged with setting strategy, designing solutions and developing global policies. Expertise for a workforce planning Center will help the organization to report on, understand and manage human capital metrics – equipping it with the tools to convey trends in workforce data, identify areas at risk, or analyze the return and impact of specific HR initiatives.

Please join Karen Piercy and Matt Stevenson of Mercer for a thought-provoking session on how to launch a successful workforce planning COE.

In this session they will outline Mercer’s overall approach to the workforce planning process within an organization, and then describe the ideal role of a COE within each process step. Next, the presenters will describe different models of COE and how the Center can interact with management, operations and HR to deliver results. They will describe the key roles and responsibilities within a COE, and the recommended skills and competencies needed to make the Center work. Lastly, the presenters will walk through a workforce planning case study, pointing out the tasks competed and roles fulfilled by the COE throughout the process.
