Strategic Workforce Planning
New Zealand

Wednesday, 8 September 2021 | 09:00AM - 11:00AM NZST | Online

Enhancing People, Culture and Performance in the Workplace

An ever-increasing volume of data is becoming available to organisations as the New Zealand population takes a further step into living and working more digitally. Thus, leaders in the public sector are seeking to glean more constructive insights about new workplace capabilities to better engage employees, benefit culture, and enhance organisational performance.

Strategic workforce planning is crucial in shaping and managing the workforce of the future in an intelligent manner. Many forward-looking organisations around the country are already exploiting this technique to acquire top talent, further explore innovative technology to design a more contingent workforce, and harnessing data to dramatically improve decision-making and predict behaviours and outcomes.

Join us at the complimentary ‘Strategic Workforce Planning’ Virtual Event which will give attendees a better understanding of the current HR and Workforce transformation landscape in New Zealand to help them optimise their current programs of work.
