What is a workforce plan?

A workforce plan is your employment road-map.

The plan makes sure you meet current and future business goals by:

  • identifying key job roles needed for business success
  • highlighting the skill-sets needed to perform roles so you hire the right
  • people identifying the training and development needs of existing employees
  • outlining your recruitment, staff deployment and succession planning strategies
  • helping your business avoid staff surpluses and shortages.

Why is a workforce plan important?

We live in an ever-changing world. New technologies, changes in government policies and other events can affect the type and volume of staff you need over time.

A workforce plan:

  • helps you successfully manage the ups and downs in your business.
  • allows you to respond quickly and appropriately if outside influences
  • impact your business’ workflow or profitability.
  • guides your managers and staff on future expectations and
  • performance requirements so you remain an efficient and productive business.

How do I develop a workforce plan?

Your workforce plan reflects your business strategy. It usually includes:

  • your current staff skill sets and expertise
  • workforce gaps and ways to overcome them
  • strategies to match your workforce with your future needs
  • targets to measure your strategy’s success.
