Workforce Planning for Growth Worskshop

September 3, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Workforce planning helps you shape the workforce that you have now and understand what needs to be done to obtain the workforce you need in the future – in order that you can obtain your business goals.

Keeping pace with workforce trends in a digitally disruptive world with the tough challenges of shifting customer demands, skills shortages, the challenges of diversity and inclusivity; and the uncertainy of Brexit is non-negotiable if you want your businesses to thrive.

Everybody will benefit from gaining an understanding of the models and approaches introduced in this foundation workshop.

Broken into bite size chunks the workshop will cover:

  • Workforce trends overview
  • Workforce planning linked to business priorities
  • Proactive planning for the short, medium and long term
  • Creating organisational flexiblity
  • The role of recruitment, engagement and retention
  • Creating an action plan

The workshop will be delivered by Fathom Learning, established in 1982 with more than thirty years experience in organisational development. Over the last three years Fathom have worked with one hundred and forty-seven client organisations, more than four hundred and fifty senior managers, and over eleven hundred managers, to help them improve their organisations.
