While strategic workforce planning (SWP) is most often undertaken at the organization level, we are beginning to see examples of national efforts to ensure that a country will have the right talent, with the right skills, at the right time, place, and price to meet employers’ future needs. Canada’s Forum for International Trade (FITT) is one such example. Learn how FITT engages multiple stakeholders and uses innovative practices to identify the skills Canada will need to maintain its strength in global markets.

Join Dr. Mary Young, Principal Researcher, Human Capital at The Conference Board as she welcomes Caroline Thompkins, President of the Forum for International Trade Training and Dr. Rick Guzzo, Co-Leader of Mercer’s Workforce Sciences Institute, and hear about the challenges that employers face when using national labor market data in strategic workforce planning.

Audience: Human Capital professionals charged with strategic workforce planning, talent management, leadership development, workforce readiness, diversity & inclusion, strategic human resources, employee engagement, or human capital analytics would benefit from this webcast.
