White Paper – The Executive’s Guide to Strategic Workforce Planning
Strategic workforce planning is a process that ensures your business has the right people in the right jobs at the right time to achieve your expected results. This white paper explores six steps of strategic workforce planning and offers some advice for achieving results.
Importance of Broad Thinking
Strategic workforce planning often involves a delicate balancing act, and the ability to plan for several distinct growth tracks. Company leaders must develop a plan that is relevant to current growth patterns, while also being prepared for an unexpected spike in business.
Rapid growth can be a double-edged sword for an expanding company. While high productivity and an increase in business is obviously a good thing, unexpected growth that happens suddenly can catch the organization off guard, and without a well-developed plan for expanding the workforce to accommodate the increasing demands.
