Strategic Workforce Planning: Reimagined Workforce
Sometimes, in this world of Strategic Workforce Planning, it can feel quite lonely. While SWP is definitely having a teenage growth-spurt, it is still, in my opinion, an emerging discipline. While it's certainly getting a lot more attention, it is not something that is in place at most organizations.
So it is always such a pleasure to come across fellow SWP-enthusiasts like the delightful Kath Hume – and even better when we get to have a long, juicy chat about all things SWP . . . recorded for your listening pleasure of course.
Here are a couple of Kath’s (and my) favorites from our chat:
- Strategic workforce planning is about getting to the heart of the most fundamental question for any organization - What is our purpose and what will it take to get there?
If we ask most organizations, what workforce size, shape, and skills they need today the majority don't have a clear view of that and if we say, well, what about in three years time or five years time, it's virtually zero organizations that have a view on this. But every single organization knows that they'll be different in three or five years time. And what are these organizations if not the workforce – the people in them.
All in all, a great accompaniment to your commute, morning stroll or unwinding at night with a glass of wine.
