Human Capital Consulting - Workforce Optimisation

Many organisations do not manage their workforce as a quantifiable resource. They believe it is too difficult to know where to start to forecast, plan and manage workforce supply and demand in the most cost-effective manner.

However, organisations often have rich information hidden in their workforce data. This data can be unlocked by analytical tools to provide valuable insight and support effective decision-making.

Workforce planning can become tightly integrated with strategic and operational planning to ensure that short-term needs are addressed and long-term opportunities are exploited.

Key considerations of appropriate workforce planning processes are to:

  • Ensure the right skills are in place now, to address the demands of this quarter and beyond.
  • Re-deploy your existing skills quickly out of declining markets and aggressively grow your most profitable services.
  • Increase your workforce agility to deal with demand peaks and troughs whilst maintaining a lean and competitive cost base.
  • Subcontract or outsource components of your operation to reduce overheads with no impact on your customers.
  • Build capability to execute better short-, medium- and long-term workforce plans.
  • Build confidence in your workforce and the market by making great decisions about your people and implementing boldly.

We help clients to make the most cost-effective use of their workforce while delivering against business priorities. Our workforce planning services include the assessment of workforce capability and capacity, identification of critical workforce segments, forecasting of demand, and planning and implementation of workforce strategies.
