Workforce planning and development is the process of determining your business’s skills and workforce needs in response to changing demographic, economic and labour market conditions and other challenges that this brings. 

 

It involves having a critical look at your current workforce, the environment you are working in and then designing and delivering strategies, policies and actions that maximise opportunities for building, attracting and retaining a skilled and capable workforce.
