Move your career, and your business, forward with one of the most sought-after skills in talent management today. HCI’s Strategic Workforce Planning Certification Program provides you with the skills required to integrate quantitative measures such as headcount planning and workforce analytics into a qualitative decision framework that can inform and transform organizational strategy.


Why Should You Attend?


In an economy driven by innovation and constant change, strategic workforce planning cannot be wholly delegated to HR. Disruptive change is likely to first impact the organization at the divisional or unit level, and operating leaders must be able to respond with local workforce planning to execute effectively. As a result, strategic workforce planning is now an important competency for all business leaders.

HCI’s Strategic Workforce Planning Certification Program prepares high-potential and high-performing HR and business leaders to identify critical roles and competencies, develop organizational agility and align workforce planning with integrated human capital and business strategy.

Course participants will receive the official SWP Toolkit, which contains dozens of practical job aids that reinforce principles learned in order to save time and simplify execution. The kit includes tools for environmental scanning, assessing current state, risk mitigation, talent segmentation, cascading competencies and more.

The course is highly interactive, providing the opportunity for networking with HR leaders across industries. Over the course of two days, you will explore actionable concepts presented through case studies, multimedia learning modules, and interactive problem solving. Course graduates will be able to:

  • Identify the major strategies and research that underpin strategic workforce planning

  • Describe the HCI strategic workforce planning methodology

  • Apply the strategic workforce planning methodology via a case study

  • Understand the role that data and analytics play in the SWP process

  • Define and develop an SWP implementation roadmap
