Cure Your Pain: Best Practices for Workforce Planning

Postby TeamAxium » Tue Sep 04, 2012 5:51 pm

Accurate workforce planning is both analytical and creative. You can work hours and hours on resource planning and then, at the last minute, learn that a key employee just resigned from the firm and you need to find another solution. You can interview all the Project Managers and build the perfect plan, and then have a large project get the signed contract to start immediately. By having an understanding of how to identify the workforce requirements to achieve the organization’s short- and long-term goals and objectives, you will be more successful in your planning. By understanding how to analyze the labor market for trends that impact the ability to meet workforce requirements, you will be able to prevent over – or under-staffing.
