    Strategic Workforce Planning Program

    HCMS in partnership with Alex Hagan provide strategic workforce planning programs for HR Directors, HR Manager, HR Advisors, Recruitment Managers, Workforce Planning Managers and Talent Managers to develop and execute best practice strategic workforce planning initiatives and insights to assist organisations to save millions of dollars.

    Organisations are reporting that they see the link between Strategic Workforce Planning and profitability; yet at the same time reporting that they don't know how to start a Strategic Workforce Planning program in their own organisation. This course equips participants with the framework and tools to begin a best practise Strategic Workforce Planning initiative in their organisation.

    Large corporate organisations who implement Strategic Workforce Planning have improved productivity and optimised their workforces, Government and Not-For-Profit organisations can do more with less and will improve service. This is where HR can contribute in a very tangible way to the bottom line of an organisation. - research has shown that organisations using best-practise Strategic Workforce Planning have higher revenue, and higher profit margins. Executives are demanding that for HR to earn a seat at the table, they need to be able to contribute to strategy in a meaningful way - Strategic Workforce Planning provides the framework for doing this.

    Places in the workshop are strictly limited to ensure a high-quality and collaborative learning environment. Attendees will get both a pre-workshop and a post-workshop consult with the trainer, and practical initiatives and exercises that they can take back to their own organisation. Before, during, and after the workshop, we tailor the content and advice to the needs and challenges of the participants.
