Strategic workforce management is a long-term vision that defines how your organisation applies its workforce to support the business – now and in the years to come. To solidify this vision, it is important to consider the HR-related changes needed – including investments in technology – to support the workplace of the future.

There are six main elements of strategic workforce management:

1. Managing talent

Your future as an organisation depends on your ability to attract, keep and develop a skilled talent pool that is driven, innovation-minded and eager to grow. More, you must ensure that employees are qualified to do the needed work at the right moment. Do you know what talent you have? Are you making the right investments in your talent program to prepare for future business needs? 

2. Coping with demographic changes with a view to the future

Your workforce management strategy must prepare your people for the future, and requires an accurate analysis of your current and future needs. To ensure a future-proof strategy, it is important to keep a clear view of the types of employees present (full time, part time, freelance, interim, consultants), how they are deployed and what mix you will need moving forward.

3. Understanding salary costs per profile

Do you know how much each profile in your organisations costs to employ, and what projects they are involved in? Optimising the deployment of your profiles means knowing exactly when to assign them the right tasks.

4. Analysing workforce condition and productivity

Good planning safeguards employee motivation and agility and reduces expenditure per employee. However, your efforts will fail without a good understanding of the quantity and quality of work produced by each employee.

5. Defining a future workforce strategy

This is a continuous process of identifying gaps and proposing possible solutions as new challenges arise. Essential to this process is gaining insights into your workforce and your salary cost structure – at any moment – to inform decision-making and even potentially simulate different future scenarios.
