Workforce planning is a systematic process that aligns business and HR needs to ensure organizations have the right people, with the right skills, at the right time and cost to execute efficiently and successfully. With proper planning, you minimize risks associated with executing business strategy. There are two main components of workforce planning: strategic and operational. Strategic workforce planning takes the long view and forecasts critical roles the organization will need in the future. Operational workforce planning looks at the short term demands of the business, compares them to current talent supply, and determines whether additional resources are needed.
