Solving Recruitment: Strategic Workforce Planning


Don’t you feel that recruitment is generally moving from one crisis to another? It seems there is NEVER a moment when recruitment is steady, under control, low stress, high confidence project. Instead, it’s a fire that we need to put out yesterday. Why is this – why can we not plan our hiring in more strategic way?


You will learn


– What is strategic workforce planning

– Why does it not happen enough?

– Key blockers to implementing strategic workforce planning

– What is the role of TA vs HR in planning hiring?

– How to build better relationships with stakeholders in hiring

– What technologies support SWP?

– How can ATS / HRIS data be used to support better planning

– How do we know it is working, if we feel we have implemented SWP?


All this and more as we tackle the lack of planning in hiring. With Perry Timms, Founder (People & Transformational HR), CJ Green, Founder (Brave Goose) & Danny Hodgson, CEO (Foresight)
