Workforce planning is one of the most important organizational issues that human resource professionals are talking about today. As stated in a previous post on successfully recruiting millenials, there are 75 million baby boomers who are on the verge of retirement. For the next twenty years, an average of 10,000 people each day will reach age 65, which has historically been the retirement phase of life.
This means staggering changes to the workforce, to YOUR workforce. Is your organization prepared? Many are still in the discussion phase.
If that’s your organization, don’t fret. Start planning.
Consulting firm KPMG has laid out a 10 step Strategic Workforce Planning starter kit, to help map your plan. This is a start to having a comprehensive, actionable plan that will sustain your organization through a shifting workforce over the next two decades.
