We are pleased to promote the release of a new white paper from one of our partners, Advanced Workforce Strategies, entitled "How to Avoid the 12 Deadly Traps of Workforce Strategic Planning". Workforce strategic planning is now a "hot" issue for many organisations as they seek to more effectively manage their most valuable intangible asset - their people.
Whether you are seeking to downsize, reconfigure, ramp up, engage and retain, improve performance, direct investments in HR initiatives where they matter most, implement HR analytics, etc., this white paper advocates a more strategic approach to workforce management, rather than a series of ad hoc interventions.
Furthermore, you may be thinking of moving beyond simply workforce planning to develop a more comprehensive workforce strategy that is aligned with your business strategy. Alternatively you may have developed a workforce strategy but are looking to compare it against best practice. Whatever the case, this comprehensive white paper based on latest thinking and research, and including a number of case studies, will guide you in some key principles and warn you about what you should avoid.
As a taster here is an interview with Colin Beames, Managing Director of Advanced Workforce Strategies.
