The ever-changing global economic conditions brought about by technology, fluid political landscapes, major shifts in demographics and social attitudes, calls for a keener focus towards workforce planning and people strategising in many organisations.

The need for the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles, at the right time and at the right cost rings true now more than ever. While globalisation and changes in work practices offers an increased access to talent, it is equally true that organisations are exposed to heightened competition for people resource.

Given these fluctuating dynamics, how can HR practitioners keep ahead of the curve? How can workforce planning help align changing organisation needs with its people strategy?


This program is suitable for those who want to introduce people analytics into their role. You may be looking to build your knowledge, skills and confidence around workforce planning or simply want to increase your ability to help drive business results and deliver value-added services.
