What is Workforce Planning?

Workforce planning is a process of analyzing an organization's current workforce and predicting future workforce needs, aligned with the priorities of the business. The goal is to ensure the availability of critical talent and skills, delivering workforce solutions to enable businesses to anticipate and respond quickly to change.

Skill-based workforce planning focuses on the future skills needed within the organization, assessing the availability of skills in a team, identifying gaps between the current and required skills needs, and planning for the development of team members.

Adopting a systematic and strategic approach, unlocks your workforce’s capabilities, empowers business leaders with reliable, accurate and timely team insights, and ensures that skills gaps do not impact business performance.
