Workforce & Succession Planning



This workshop will provide delegates with the information and processes that can be applied to

ensure a systematic and integrated approach to workforce planning. It defines fundamental steps to

develop and implement workforce plans as well as identifies tools available to assist managers and

leaders in the overall process.

Planning for human resource needs is one of the greatest challenges facing managers and leaders. In order to meet this challenge, a uniform process that provides a disciplined approach for matching human resources with the anticipated needs of the company is essential.

Workforce planning is a fundamental planning tool, critical to quality performance that will contribute to the achievement of objectives by providing a basis for justifying budget allocation and workload staffing levels and should be included as a key management activity.

Workforce and succession planning should be directly linked to broad-based management strategies that encompass several processes, including an organization's Aids/HIV strategy, EE workforce targets, talent management, WSP training needs, the BBBEE scorecard and future growth and acquisition strategy.

This workforce and succession planning workshop will assist you to meet your organization’s competency / skills needs and assist managers in creating a high quality workforce capable to meet the organization’s strategic goals.
