Getting Workforce Planning right

Getting Workforce Planning wrong can land companies and organisations in serious trouble and have dire financial consequences.  No company knows this better than G4S. 

This year the HR Society’s Autumn Annual Conference puts the spotlight on Workforce Planning. Entitled ‘People for Tomorrow’, it will focus on how effective strategic WP is essential for the future success of organisations and businesses. 
How do you ensure your organisation has the right skills and capabilities to survive and thrive in today’s global economy?
Chaired by the President, Angela O Connor, the day will be packed with an influential line-up of senior HR thought-leaders. 
Newly appointed CIPD CEO, Peter Cheese will take a global perspective and will share his insights into what HR professionals need to have on their agenda for future survival.  
Director of HR at the Olympic Delivery Authority, Wendy Cartwright will give conference delegates a unique insight into the workforce planning challenges of the London 2012 venues and infrastructure projects and of the OD issues of a limited life organisation. 
Other speakers include Kevin Green, CEO of Recruitment Employment Federation, Peter Sharpe from the Centre for Workforce Intelligence and Duncan Brown, Principal from Aon Hewitt.
Said HR Society President, Angela O Connor:
"Those companies and organisations that take strategic workforce planning seriously will be the survivors in the future. Companies must take a holistic approach and ensure they have the right people, in the right place with the right skills.  This will be the focus of our conference. We are delighted to have brought together an influential line-up of senior HR thought-leaders and professionals who will share their insights into WP. I believe it will be an invaluable day for attendees”.
