12:45pm-1:20pm How to Succeed with Workforce Planning in an Unpredictable Environment: Let Data be your Partner

General Session
The pandemic has shown us what experienced workforce planning professionals have always known. It may be AI and job automation. It may be a new competitor. It may be economic constraints or geopolitical challenges. Or it may be the ultimate challenge - a pandemic that rewrites the rules of how business is conducted and how work is done. In any of these circumstances, if you do not plan for these scenarios, the options to adjust the workforce and respond to new business conditions will be very limited.
In this presentation, Jane Barrett, Head of Global People Analytics & Digital Solutions for Ericsson, and Peter Louch, CEO of Vemo, will discuss how to use data as your partner to ensure your organization is engaging in continuous workforce planning and scenario planning. This continuous approach to workforce planning will help your organization adapt and thrive in an unpredictable environment.
In this session, you will learn:
  • What types of broad brush scenario planning should be included in workforce planning
  • How do modern predictive techniques facilitate a continuous workforce planning approach
  • What types of decisions are enabled by a data-driven scenario planning - and what types of business and workforce outcomes are realized
