2 day in-person class or 4 half-day online sessions

Offered in-person, online, and in-house

Accredited by Human Capital Institute US

Course Introduction

Forecast and plan the workforce your organization will need to succeed in the future.

Skill gaps or shortages. Turnover. An aging workforce. Changing business models. Managing talent risks and expenses. The complexity and urgency of these issues make it feel impossible to plan more than a few months out.

You need a way to develop and implement a workforce plan that is agile and dynamic enough to help your organization thrive in today’s environment—while at the same time establishing yourself as a strategic partner to the business.

HCI’s model takes workforce planning out of the theoretical realm and gives you a methodology and set of tools that you can implement right away—beginning in class.
