About the workshop

With APS governance structures continually evolving, a robust and dynamic workforce planning and analytics strategy is critical to meet the changing nature of work head-on. The business case for harnessing HR analytics to strengthen forecasting and planning, and power evidence-based people decisions is overwhelming. By more effectively integrating workforce planning with your agency’s organisational strategy, you can build the capability to deliver new workforce insights, identify risk, and translate those key insights into action.

This two-day, hands-on workshop will take your strategic workforce planning and analytics capability to the next level, exploring the latest workforce trends in the Australian Public Sector, including the impact of digital disruption. Determine the status and maturity of your agency’s workforce strategy models, and improve workforce ROI with a best practice HRM architecture.
