Strategic Workforce Planning in Global Organizations

Many organizations struggle to determine exactly how to deploy strategic workforce planning (SWP) globally. Not only must SWP address different business and workforce challenges from one country to the next, but it often takes a few years to determine which aspects of SWP should be conducted at the country or business-unit level and which should be led at the enterprise level. The answer may not be the same for every company. This report describes how SWP adds value by helping global companies make better business decisions. It details what it takes for companies to advance from a fledgling effort to a more robust version of SWP. Included are observations about the impacts of the recent recession on SWP.
