Acquiring talent shouldn’t be chaotic, reactive, and rushed – nor should the approach to developing talent be “one size fits all.”
No longer can talent planning be reserved for just the top of the house. With today’s tighter budgets, fewer resources, and heightened competition, you need to work with the business to identify and prioritize talent needs. You need to use people data, analytics, and forecasting to understand whether you can meet your future talent needs with your existing workforce.
Strategic Workforce Planning provides a straightforward framework that you can use to take a more proactive, strategically aligned approach to your talent planning. It helps you identify which roles you must have to achieve your long-term strategy. It helps you uncover important insights about your workforce and prepares you for unanticipated events. And it enables you to successfully engage the business in talent planning.
