Strategic workforce planning has a variety of meanings to organisations. With the evolution of the talent agenda due to constant business change, shifting consumer behaviours and digital transformation, acquiring the best talent is more important than ever before. The global economy is complex; change in one vector is just about manageable, but we live in a business world where change occurs in multiple vectors simultaneously, which challenges even the most astute companies.

Strategic workforce planning isn’t something that can sit solely with human resources – it’s a business imperative. If you get it right, it will help your company to be responsive and sustainable – and gain a competitive advantage.
