KellyOCG(R) and Human Capital Institute(R) Partner to Produce Strategic Workforce Planning Courses; Courses to be held in Singapore, Zurich, London and Australia

TROY, Mich. – July 14, 2016 – The world of work is an increasingly complex place to navigate today. Issues such as economic uncertainties and demographic shifts are making it more and more difficult to manage talent conventionally.

To help business leaders better manage the changing workforce, KellyOCG(R), the outsourcing and consulting group of Kelly Services, in partnership with the Human Capital Institute(R) (HCI), is offering strategic workforce planning (SWP) courses. These courses go beyond traditional manpower planning to provide a qualitative decision framework that ensures businesses have the right talent in place when needed.

“Strategic workforce planning expertise is an important competency for all business leaders today,” said Susan DeFazio, practice lead for KellyOCG’s Advisory Services Group. “A workforce strategy that is agile enough to evolve with the business strategy leads to positive results on the bottom line. We are also seeing leading organizations take a broader view of their talent supply chain by incorporating the external workforce into their planning.”

Each SWP course consists of pre-work, a two-day class, an exam, and a post-course exercise that establishes a baseline and lays the foundation for a strategic workforce plan. The course is highly interactive and provides a synthesis of best and next practices, current research, and comprehensive models to guide step-by-step workforce planning activities.

Courses will be offered in the following locations on the following dates:

– August 10 – 11 (Singapore)
– August 16 – 17 (Sydney)
– September 7 – 8 (Canberra)
– September 28 – 29 (London)
– October 12 – 13 (Zurich)
– October 19 – 20 (Melbourne)
– November 2 – 3 (Singapore)
– November 8 – 9 (Sydney)
– December 7 – 8 (London)

“The course provided valuable insight into the methodology of strategic workforce planning,” said Sally Dillon, Head of MI and Performance for Aviva in the UK. “The role-playing case study examples were quite helpful. Even more beneficial was creating a network of peers in a variety of organizations who are all on the same development path so we could keep the learning and sharing going after the course.”
