What do we mean by Strategic Workforce Planning?

Your workforce is the driving force behind the achievement of your business strategy (short and long-term goals). The Strategic Workforce Planning process analyses the company culture and the current needs of your workforce vs the future needs of your workforce. This process enables businesses to build a robust company culture and ensure their workforce has the skills, knowledge and behaviours it needs to succeed in the future.

What benefits does Strategic Workforce Planning bring to businesses?

Strategic Workforce Planning is seen as key to overcoming the business challenges of the 21st Century. For Worcestershire businesses the process will mitigate recruitment and retention challenges, narrow the skills gap, and enhance agility so employers can adapt to ever-changing environments.
