Beginners Guide to Workforce Planning

Beginners Guide to Workforce Planning

A beginner’s guide for HR, Talent Acquisition and Resourcing Professionals. Leverage a strategic approach to hiring to improve talent acquisition and drive growth.


Reaching the right talent to help your business grow isn’t easy. In fact, our recent survey into UK hiring trends showed that four in five hiring managers are struggling to source the talent their business needs to thrive. We are witnessing similar trends across almost every other advanced economy. Talent is in high demand, but is in critically short supply.

It will come as no surprise therefore that savvy resourcing professionals are moving away from reactionary recruitment. Instead businesses are taking a more strategic and proactive approach to their long-term talent acquisition and workforce management plans, doing everything they can to future-proof their organisation.

However, for those not used to working in such a strategic way, it can be difficult to know where to start. In a bid to help, we’ve put together a top level overview of how to go about your workforce planning, along with some simple templates to get you started.
