Strategic Workforce Modeling and Planning

EDSI's Strategic Workforce Modeling and Planning services help businesses determine organizational needs in terms of the size, type, experience, quality, skills and knowledge of its workforce. This information is critical to achieve primary business goals and helps maintain a focus on longer-term workforce development and business goals.

Strategic Workforce Planning and Modeling ensures that you’ll have the resources you need to not only meet your goals and maintain growth, but also weather economic downturns or unforeseen disruptions in production. It requires knowing where you’re coming from and where you want to be, and how to analyze the distance between those two points.

A recent study* on strategic workforce planning and analytics showed 61% of respondents said they do not look beyond the 1-3 year time horizon for workforce planning.

Without proactive and productive strategic workforce planning companies will struggle to achieve a complete vision of their overall business objectives. That vision needs to focus on training and personnel strategies as foundation to support organizational productivity.
