A well-formed workforce plan that is aligned with business goals can help companies improve productivity, reduce costs, and drive enterprise value. The plan should include detailed action on acquiring, engaging, developing and managing the right talent at the right price to enable the organization to achieve its stated business goals.

If your team is conducting its Workforce Planning separate from the business, they are missing a big opportunity to optimize cost, profit, service delivery and productivity. Having worked with many HR teams, we have helped find millions in ROI using analytics to model and realign their workforce to meet these uncertain times. 

Reality Check

In theory, a good workforce plan fits hand in glove with the organization’s business goals and KPIs. In reality, most HR organizations are scrambling to backfill headcount, hire new talent and control workforce costs without linking it to the business.

This is how it usually plays out:

  • CEO directs Finance to control workforce costs

  • CEO directs HR to hire more talent

No wonder workforce budgets are a point of contention between HR and Finance! Ideally, the two teams would work together along with the business to find a solution that meets the CEO’s requirements and is aligned with the business goals.
