Gain Workforce Planning Skills

Attend or hold a workshop

Workforce Council regularly runs workshops designed to help you create sustainability in your workforce through workforce planning, or build a business case for workforce planning within your organisation.

We offer a range of development programs including two and four day workshops that build knowledge of our workforce planning framework. These workshops will give you the knowledge and skills needed to:

  • Analyse industry and labour market trends and predictions
  • Link workforce objectives with business plans
  • Plan workforce strategies to achieve your organisational goals and objectives
  • Determine and meet the education and training needs of your workers
  • Design strategies and succession plans.

We also regularly run half and one-day workshops to build skills in specific areas of the workforce planning framework that support your HR and organisational development capacity.
