Your Challenge: Integrating Future Workforce Planning into Your Organizational Strategy

While most organizations spend a lot of time on their 3, 5 or 10 years plans, very seldom does it include a strategic talent based workforce plan. A good talent management plan helps to identify future demand and skills that do not exist today. It also helps to interconnect work force planning, talent management and succession planning processes.

Talent-based work force planning are often simply viewed as an annual event but not a continual, integrated and strategic process taking place at various points throughout the year. As a result, they deal with talent retention ineffectively, losing valuable talent to competitors, incurring higher recruiting costs and poor succession management.
