Strategic Workforce Planning Workshop

Thursday, March 8, 2018 • Venue TBD • Vancouver, B.C.

Workforce planning is becoming a sophisticated process. With talent shortages and a competitive economy, it’s imperative that organizations have the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

Strategic Workforce Planning is the analytic, forecasting, and planning process that connects and directs talent management activities to ensure an organization has the proper human resource capital to execute its business strategy..

Through this full-day workshop, based on the acclaimed research conducted by Mary Young of Conference Board Inc., participants will learn the skills they need to develop strategic workforce planning models and a personal action plan that they can implement in their organization. Shannon Jackson, who leads The Conference Board of Canada’s HR Transformation Research practice, will be incorporating findings into the workshop from our most recent research: Workforce Planning Practices in Canada.

  • Align and integrate strategic workforce planning with your business strategy
