Über die Veranstaltung

Your workforce is your most valuable business asset.  The knowledge, skills, and abilities of your team are the fuel that drives your business.  Labour shortages, voluntary attrition, skills gaps, increased demands for flexible work arrangements, changes to legislation and a growing list of other factors impact the productivity and growth of a business.  Workforce planning identifies how future staffing and skill needs will be met by assessing internal and external factors, develop gap-closing strategies, and instruct you on how to plan moving forward.

The Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) course is designed for anyone who has responsibility for the HR function of a small-to-medium business or who is getting started with workforce planning.



You may be eligible for financial training supports. Visit:

This is a two-day course running from 9:00am-4:00pm (ADT). 

Light refreshments provided.


In this certificate program you'll learn to develop the skills necessary to address workforce planning for your organization.   As labour shortages will continue to persist for the next decade (or longer), the ability to plan strategically will be an in-demand skillset.  

You will learn to:

  • Examine your organization’s strategic direction and its impact on your workforce;
  • Avoid the 10 deadly traps of strategic workforce planning;
  • Scan the internal and external environment for factors that can impact your workforce plans;
  • Collect and use data to inform decision making;
  • Conduct root cause analysis to address labour challenges;
  • Conduct essential and critical role assessments;
  • Identify strategies to address workforce gaps;
  • Learn how to develop and implement a workforce action plan using a structured framework.
