STRATEGIC WORKFORCE PLANNING & RESOURCING

DEVELOPING A STRATEGIC WORKFORCE PLAN


TH
13 14TH DECEMBER, 2017. NASSIMA ROYAL HOTEL DUBAI. UAE

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW:

Workforce planning is very much under-valued and misunderstood by the average business. Senior executives take it for granted that the business will
have the right people, in the right jobs, with the right skills at the right time in the right numbers. Getting any of that wrong costs the business a lot of
money and disrupts business continuity.

Have you ever had vacancies in key roles you cannot fill? Even been caught off-guard with not enough labor, or too many people when demand has
dropped? How about paying people who lack the skills for the job they are doing? All these scenarios are typical of poor workforce planning. All can be
avoided.

This course focuses not on theory, but on practical, real-life, proven workforce planning strategies and practices. You will take away knowledge but also
models and templates that you can begin applying in your business immediately. Tools that will help you diagnose likely future issues and deal with them
before they actually become real issues is a key part of the learning.

This course is designed to help you master the art of workforce planning so that your company's biggest investment (or biggest expense if you get
things wrong!) which is your workforce, is lean, productive and ready to add value.

THIS COURSE WILL FEATURE:

DISCOVER how to diagnose future workforce needs


IDENTIFY the right skills and knowledge to equip your workforce ahead of time
LEARN ways to deal with unexpected vacancies and sudden labor over-supply
WALK away with many models and templates that will work for you and your business
KNOW how to win senior management support for workforce planning activities
GAIN information about how to maximize workforce flexibility for strategic skill deployment
SEE how job-design and career path management support workforce planning strategies

Recent surveys suggest that well over half of todays organizations are planning to plan. That is, they know they want to begin a Workforce Planning process but
dont know where to begin or what the expected outcome should be. This program offers a structured program that provides a synthesis of best practices and research
along with a model to guide step by step workforce planning activities.

WORKFORCE PLANNING ENABLES YOU TO GET THE RIGHT WORKFORCE IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AT THE RIGHT TIME,
WITH THE RIGHT SKILLS AND AT THE RIGHT PRICE.
