Conference Description:

It looks as if the worst of the Great Recession is finally fading. At last we can look ahead at growth. A primary focus has to be on the competitive advantage that comes from our workforce.

With the continuing uncertainty and accelerated change that defines our current era, companies are being challenged to think about and prepare for the skills and capabilities they will need for the future. At the same time, the demographics and competitive arena call out to them challenges in securing and retaining the critical job groups and mission critical talent that is needed to drive their strategy now and as it changes. Thus workforce planning is more and more top of mind to the senior and talent minded executives including HR.

But workforce planning is not new for most organizations. Many have been successful in their prior journey with mapping the workforce plan to the business; at least satisfactorily until now. Others feel their workforce planning process has been mostly operational and mired in a past era. What’s new, at this time, is that business is being challenged to take a fresh evaluation of what they do well, what is missing, and what can be improved in this important arena. We will focus on making it more than numbers on a page and a key driver in a strategic organizational plan.

The theme of the conference is to provide a provocative mix of practitioner case studies and panel discussions that illuminates and sparks ideas for those currently engaged in workforce planning who want to make this fresh evaluation of their workforce planning process for the future.
