Where are you on your journey to strategic workforce planning capability?

In the past year public sector budgets have shrunk even further and are expected to continue to reduce in future years. Set against a backdrop of already challenging efficiency targets and headcount reductions, the fiscal climate continues to tighten. With such drastic re-organisation plans gathering pace, it is now more urgent than ever that senior management embrace the concept of strategic workforce planning to fully understand current workforce capability and scenario plan for the future.

With a shift taking place towards a more commercially operated public sector operating model, this year’s Workforce Planning for the Public Sector Summit will examine the strategies you need to implement to enable improved business outcomes across your department.

Key strategic areas to be covered at the event will include:

  • Workforce analysis and environmental scanning
  • Scenario planning and gap analysis
  • Risk mitigation and developing an action plan
  • Job families
  • HR metrics and workforce analytics
  • The role of HR Business Partners in driving strategic workforce planning

Through case study focused session delivered by public sector leaders in this area our aim is to guide you through strategy development to enable the integration of workforce planning within business planning and ensure that you are positioned to respond to rapidly changing operating conditions.

What’s new in 2015?

This year’s summit will feature a separately bookable one day focus group that will attempt to guide you through the six stages of strategic workforce planning. More details coming soon…..
