Public Sector Workforce Analytics Workshop

Cliftons Canberra

Hide Section - About the Event
People are every organisation’s largest and most valuable asset. A well sculpted workforce and positive culture significantly impact the success and well being of an organisation. To meet the challenges presented by the dynamic environment of the Public Sector, employees must be equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to competently deliver consistent outcomes. However, in order to create a workforce plan that addresses employee needs, HR professionals must first understand the underlying factors or fundamentals that drive success.

With Public Sector governance structures continually changing, it can be difficult to project the future requirements of an organisation. It is imperative that HR professionals acknowledge and adapt to evolving future trends whilst creating a robust workforce plan. Uncertain trends and variables often complicate future projections, however through the use of tactical workforce analytics, HR professionals can derive the needs of a complex workforce from quality data.

In this Workshop, delegates will explore the essential tools and techniques demanded of HR professionals in the Public Sector to create a sophisticated workforce plan against a backdrop of continual change. It will focus on the technical abilities needed to integrate and interpret workforce analytics into your organisational strategy.

The Workshop will be delivered using a three tiered approach. The structure of each session is as follows:
1. Technical overview and review of research into the topic area under discussion
