What is workforce planning?

Workforce planning is the process of aligning the operational and strategic elements of a workforce with organizational objectives. Operational workforce planning considers employees’ needs, including scheduling, skill sets, training and job satisfaction.

Organizations of all kinds use workforce planning to maximize productivity and efficiency. Good workforce planning involves ensuring talent is distributed throughout different areas of an organization. It also requires you to know the needs of each department and how many people are necessary to effectively staff them.
