<p><strong>San Francisco &mdash; June 26</strong><br />A recent Aruspex survey of C-level executives, corporate strategists and HR executives reveals a significant gap between companies&rsquo; knowledge of an impending workforce crisis and what they are actually doing to plan ahead.<br /><br />The resulting research report is titled, &ldquo;The Gap Between Needing and Doing: A Survey on Why Some Companies Don&rsquo;t Act on Strategic Workforce Planning Needs, and How Successful Companies Do.&rdquo; </p><p>&ldquo;Companies have often misunderstood the role, scope and benefits of workforce planning and have felt reluctant or unqualified to begin,&rdquo; said Tess Walton, co-founder of Aruspex, a strategic workforce planning firm that serves some of the world&rsquo;s biggest companies.<br /><br />The research report includes:</p><ul><li>The primary demographic and other factors affecting today&rsquo;s workforce.<br /></li><li>The top workforce planning challenges.<br /></li><li>Common barriers to strategic workforce planning.<br /></li><li>Best practices in workforce planning.<br /></li><li>How HR fits into the workforce planning process.</li></ul><p>Strategic workforce planning is a framework in which employers assess and analyze the impact that internal and external changes have on them, Walton said. </p><p>It is a holistic process that explores the future, assesses options and then highlights decision paths to create the preferred future workforce that is capable of delivering a business&rsquo; strategy.<br /><br />&quot;This report confirms that the world&rsquo;s leading companies are no longer settling for a basic 12-month staffing plan,&rdquo; said Stacy Chapman, Aruspex co-founder. &ldquo;Instead, they are seeking a long-term view that incorporates external trends such as workforce aging, and accesses talent pools in a new and strategic way.&quot;</p>
