<p><strong>San Francisco &mdash; Sept. 27</strong><br />An organization&rsquo;s future is influenced by people trends and hiring practices, but the future can be changed by planning ahead.  </p><p>That&rsquo;s the philosophy behind a new series of reports, &ldquo;Strategic Workforce Planning: A Real-World Approach to Planning the Right Workforce for Tomorrow&rsquo;s Organizations.&rdquo;<br /><br />The first installment, &ldquo;Part One: An Introduction to Workforce Planning,&rdquo; is now available from Aruspex, a provider of workforce planning software and consulting services. </p><p>The white paper is a first in a series of two. It describes a framework for workforce planning and demonstrates why an organization should workforce plan. </p><p>The next paper (to be released in October) will show how to implement workforce planning in an organization.<br /><br />&ldquo;Many organizations lack a framework or tools to understand and analyze future workforce needs, let alone to make the changes necessary to improve the future,&rdquo; said Stacy Chapman, Aruspex co-founder. &ldquo;The only effective way to tackle the challenges of the future workforce is strategic workforce planning, and these reports describe why and how to do just that.&rdquo;<br /><br />&ldquo;Introduction to Workforce Planning&rdquo; includes the following topics:<br /></p><ul><li>The Strategic Benefits of Workforce Planning</li><li>Why Workforce Planning Isn&rsquo;t Already Commonplace</li><li>Difficulties with Quantification</li><li>The Economic Benefits of the “Right” Workforce</li><li>How the Environment Drives Business Transformation<br /></li></ul><p>&ldquo;Most organizations expend a great deal of energy to effectively plan for future products, services, customers, competitors and finances,&rdquo; said co-founder Tess Walton. &ldquo;Yet, few apply these same strategic techniques to people planning, despite the fact that CEOs often refer to talent as the true source of their competitive advantage. Workforce planning is the people equivalent of a financial plan, and is the critical framework of an organization&rsquo;s business strategy. <br /><br />”Strategic workforce planning will guide CEOs and executive teams to identify which roles are critical to the delivery of a company&rsquo;s strategy and what kind of people are needed to achieve business goals. In addition, executives and HR professionals will understand the necessary capability and capacity to deliver on a strategy and the right ways to spend a &#39;people budget.&#39;&rdquo;</p>
