Workforce planning — How to use technology to support planning processes

Application leaders transforming HCM can use this research to explore which technology investments will best support their organization’s workforce planning processes.

According to Gartner® “When it comes to the HR view on workforce planning, 77% of HR leaders feel workforce planning is important for their own success and planning for future talent needs is the primary concern for HR leaders when it comes to the future of work. Yet, only half of HR leaders are very confident in their HR functions’ capability to execute workforce planning at their organizations, and only 44% of them actually have extensive exposure to their organizations’ workforce planning activities.”

“Workforce planning can mean different things to different people depending on their role in the organization. This can range from tactical workforce scheduling optimization, capacity planning and activity management through to strategic workforce planning. All of these processes aim to support the organization in having the workforce skills, capabilities and capacity to deliver on its mission and strategy. Each approach, however, is focused on a different set of questions or processes.”
