Course Description

An organisation is most effective when the right people are deployed appropriately, but achieving this is a strategically complex process. This course explores the concept of workforce planning, introducing how to effectively evaluate and forecast your organisation’s ongoing needs by profiling your workplace, analysing supply and demand and devising strategies to minimise workforce gaps.

Workforce planning is a rigorous business process that drives strategy execution and improves business results. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) describes workforce planning as having the people resources in place to deliver short and long-term objectives.
