What’s the most important tool for effective workforce planning? It’s not an interactive dashboard, a statistical software package, or even an Excel pivot table. It’s something far more elemental and human. It’s the face-to-face conversation between the strategic workforce planning (SWP) leader and the business executive.

Business leaders need a compelling reason to engage in strategic workforce planning (SWP).  Absent of that, it’s just an HR exercise for which they don’t have time.  Learn how companies sell the value of SWP and help business leaders think through the workforce implications of change, uncertainties and long-term strategy.

Building on The Conference Board’s latest Executive Action Report this webcast is aimed at companies who are just getting started with these important conversations.

What will be covered during the webcast:

  • Questions That Will Help Get You There
  • How to Use the Questions
  • Who Should Lead the SWP Conversation?
  • Mapping the SWP dialogue in Advance


Who should attend

Chief HR Officer, HR strategists, executives responsible for human capital analytics and/or strategic workforce planning
