SWPNZ2014-Cover (3)


Strategic Workforce Planning is one of the areas of highest value for organisations around the world, but it’s also one of the least understood. With trends like crowdsourcing, gamification, robotics, big data, and telecommuting changing the way we think about and engage in work, workforce planning provides an opportunity for HR to be a true strategic partner to the business and add tangible value.

ATC Events, in conjunction with Kienco, will bring together global thought leaders on the future of work, and some of the world’s leading companies who will share their experience in how effective workforce planning can deliver tangible results.

Recent research by Aberdeen Group found workforce planning to be a critical differentiator for organisations in today’s volatile business environment. Not surprisingly, failure to align workforce planning to the overall business strategy has led to the demise of several ‘too big to fail’ organisations over the past few years.

Themed: Master Plan – How to make HR a true strategic business partner, this conference is designed to help Australian and New Zealand HR leaders get serious about a framework for developing and delivering workforce strategy.

And because this is The Whiteboard, and we can’t take things too seriously here, we have this video funny to share with you too. Enjoy:
