What is Workforce Planning

Workforce planning is the method of aligning labor supply (skills) with demand (required numbers). It involves analyzing the current workforce, projecting future workforce needs, identifying the gap between the present and the future, and implementing solutions to ensure an organization can achieve its mission, goals, and strategic plan. The objective is to have the right number of people with the appropriate skills in the correct positions at the right time, at the right cost, and under the right contract to fulfill both short and long-term objectives. Workforce planning facilitates sustainable organizational performance by improving decision-making regarding the future human resource requirements of the business.
In larger organizations, dedicated workforce planning teams may exist. Others may initiate the process after specific events such as mergers, acquisitions, or transformative change projects. However, maintaining a focus on comprehensive workforce planning is crucial at any time. It can reveal obstacles or unrealistic targets that might impede strategic change and offer solutions to mitigate risks to strategic objectives.
