Strategic Workforce Planning

Thursday, 13 May 2021 | 09:00AM - 11:00AM AEST | Online

Aligning the workforce with the future direction of your organisation

Strategic Planning enables the public sector to plan for the capabilities they need in the future and allows organisations to analyse the current workforce, identify skills gaps, and build and support the future workforce. 

But how do we plan when the future seems so uncertain?

 Join us at the complimentaryStrategic Workforce Planning’ virtual event to explore how organisations can monitor and adapt their workforce strategy to ensure they remain responsive and agile to change to achieve common goals and build a culturally sustainable, productive public sector.
