Russell Klosk, Workforce Planning Leader — Americas, HP
In order for workforce planning to be effective, the business and human capital strategies of the organization must be aligned and ready for workforce planning. Many leaders, when faced with this, feel it’s too much work and time spent, but all talent practices must be aligned with the strategy and direction of the organization or else they are useless. Strategy leads to human capital requirements, requirements dictate the best use of those talent practices and results in an engaged, productive, and committed workforce that, in turn, yields measurable outcomes and impacts. This horizontal alignment is not present in many organizations and this is why so few are good at executing strategy.
In this session, Russell Klosk will share key takeaways that will ensure workforce planning is running on all cylinders. He will share what workforce planning was, is, and will be, how corporate strategy can inform future hiring needs, answer the question of buying, building or borrowing workforce planning technology, and determining which businesses an organization should stay in versus release.
