Strategic Workforce Planning
Christian Neubert, Human Edge
Christian Neubert will discuss the importance of Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) which is seen as one of the most critical HR disciplines to prepare organizations for changing capabilities and the digital era. In the changing environment there are lower barriers to entry and integrated value chains that are quickly eroding organizational boundaries and triggering industry convergence. Automation, demographic shifts, and globalization are altering labor supply and demand. The future is rapidly transforming. It is estimated that in three years 44% of the US workforce will be comprised of contingent workforce. And 79% of this flexible workforce will be aligned to dynamic projects, rather than static job functions. The business case for SWP could not be clearer.
Talent shortage is a key business issue facing most companies today, and a risk that companies need to address strategically.The risk includes loss of competence, increasing costs, less innovation capacity and declining productivity. Many companies are affected directly via their age structure within the company or indirectly via demographic decline of labor supply and talent scarcity on the employment market. New ways of working together (agile), hyper-connectivity trends and meeting the diverse needs of different generations within the workforce are forcing global companies to rethink.Companies need to address these challenges holistically and build the capability to strategically plan their workforce in order to deliver the right workforce, at the right time, with the right capabilities.
This session will include a discussion of the SWP methodology at different maturity levels, the benefits and conclusions drawn, and how HR executives can get started to build this critical capability in-house.
Who should attend: This workshop is open to three people from each member company.
