Workforce planning involves forecasting your business's future skill requirements and establishing how you will attract, develop and retain people with those skills.

Workforce planning will assist your business to respond to changes in the demand and supply of labour, and ensure that your business is staffed to meet future challenges. 


As a result, your business will be better placed to attract and retain employees in a competitive labour market, have higher productivity and profitability and improved quality of product and service.


Our workforce planning guide will help you plan your workforce for the future. It includes detailed information about:

  • undertaking a workforce gap analysis 
  • developing and implementing a workforce plan
  • reviewing your progress.


The guide includes useful tools and checklists to assist with your workforce planning. Alternatively, you can access these tools and checklists as individual documents below.
