This workshop provides a practical and methodical approach for creating and executing data-driven strategic workforce plans using a variety of analytical approaches and data sources.
Analytics for Workforce Planning
At its core, workforce planning is an analytical exercise in understanding the supply and demand for talent—so to get the right people with the right skills in the right place at the right time. Data requirements and analytical approaches are numerous in any workforce plan—but increasingly plans are not only dependent on analyzing traditional internal and external data about the workforce. In an ever-changing talent marketplace, analyses on competitive intelligence, industry disruptors, granular skills, employee sentiment, demographic changes, and more are key elements in a successful workforce planning exercise.
This workshop provides a practical and methodical approach for creating and executing data-driven strategic workforce plans using a variety of analytical approaches and data sources. Throughout the training, you will learn to incorporate both common analytical techniques in workforce planning, as well as the basics of incorporating advanced and non-traditional analytical techniques. Lectures, group hands-on exercises, and bonus materials are designed to allow you to immediately adopt analytical approaches and processes that you can take back to your organization for immediate strategic workforce planning.
Who Should Attend
All HR professionals at all levels, especially those involved with the analytical or technical aspects of workforce planning. Professionals with roles and backgrounds in analytics, reporting, project management, and planning are encouraged to attend.
Manuals and Bonus Materials provided
Participants will receive an interactive course manual with bonus materials containing reproducible end-to-end examples of all analytical components of a workforce plan.
