Operational & Strategic Workforce Planning

 

Professionals like yourself desire effective and efficient short and long-term workforce planning. Competency-based talent planning accomplishes this through workforce plans aligned with competencies and business needs.  Through use of competencies, you can conduct an enterprise skills gap and critical talent assessment, and forecast talent needs in alignment with the organizational strategy to develop a workforce plan.  

Use of competencies within talent planning delivers the following benefits:

Clear Understanding of Current Workforce Talent & Associated Skills Gap

Many organizations struggle to understand the skills they have, let alone what they lack.  Having this understanding is critical for effective workforce planning.  Through use of a competency-based approach, organizations can confidently identify the required set of skills and job families/roles (including critical roles) based on business need, and assess competency gaps and bench strength.  Organizations can couple this with headcount, labor costs and other relevant data to effectively define near-term and long-term workforce needs. 

 

Effective Talent Forecasting Aligned with Future Business Needs

Best-in-class organizations not only conduct workforce planning based on headcount and skill/competency gaps, but they also use scenario planning to forecast workforce needs (18+ months out) associated with various business strategies.  Doing so without a clear linkage between organizational talent and future business needs is nearly impossible.  A competency-based approach provides this linkage, through defining the set of competencies (including core values/competencies) and job families/roles required for each business scenario, and a clear framework for assessing the associated competency gaps.

Better Workforce Data to Drive Decision-Making

An Aberdeen study identified 'better access to workforce data to drive decision-making' as one of the top workforce management pressures.  Through use of a robust competency framework, and applying this to define and assess talent and skill gaps, organizations can generate the data required to segment workforce data for improved analysis and more effectively define near and long-term workforce needs.

 

 

Alignment of Workforce Planning with Other Talent Management Functions

An Aberdeen study found that less than half of organizations leverage workforce planning data within talent management functions.  Through use of a common competency framework across the talent lifecycle, organizations can feed workforce planning data into and easily apply it within recruiting, employee development, succession management and other functions.
