Workforce Planning for the Hybrid working environment Seminar

An underutilised tool for success

In a Meeting



All Day Seminar
3 May 2022

Given the importance of talent and skills, Deloitte states that “it is time to move beyond instinct, gut and tribal wisdom in making workforce decisions.” If a company is not implementing a comprehensive plan to drive its talent decisions, it may be behind the curve – and at risk of losing competitive edge.

A recent survey by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services found that, for an overwhelming majority of respondents, inadequate workforce planning has prevented them from meeting business goals.  The study found that “most companies still approach workforce planning as an annual exercise in which personnel spending is managed as a cost without considering the skills or talent needed to meet business objectives.”

According to IBM, a mere 13% of organisations go beyond simply extending their current skills to effectively predicting future skills.  While many organisations look inward before and during the planning process, many do not factor in external elements, such as threats from new or rapidly developing employment trends.

In today’s talent-based economy, the workforce itself is arguably the most important tangible asset of an organisation.  Despite its importance, this asset is often not carefully planned, measured or optimised. This means that many organisations are not sufficiently aware of the current or future workforce gaps that will limit the execution of their business strategy. Businesses need an approach that moves workforce planning from an intangible domain to an arena of operational effectiveness, driven by a clearly defined strategy and – most importantly – buy-in from all relevant role players.
