Workforce planning is the process of aligning the operational and strategic elements of a workforce with organizational objectives. Operational workforce planning considers employee needs, including scheduling, skill set, training and satisfaction.
Organizations of all kinds, including corporations, government agencies, nonprofits and more, all use workforce planning to maximize productivity and efficiency. Good workforce planning involves making sure talent is well spread throughout different areas of an organization, as well as knowing needs of each department and knowing how many people are needed to effectively staff them.
