Preparing for the future workforce through scenario planning, risk management and workforce analytics

A recent report revealed that the largest increase of employment in the Australian Public Service from 2015-16 were trainees at 140 per cent. This in itself is depicting a rise in the opportunities for up skilling in the industry and embracing the direction of the future workforce.

With Australia’s workforce rapidly changing as a result of the gig economy and flexible working, the fourth industrial revolution and technology changing skill sets, organisations must embrace necessary strategies to ensure they have the right people to meet their service demands.

Co-located with Workforce Planning for Healthcare, IQPC is proud to host the 7th Annual Workforce Planning for Public Sector Summit 2017, taking place in Sydney between the 28th – 29th November. This event will serve as an opportunity to learn how to maximise the effectiveness of staff through strategic workforce planning, understanding current capability and scenario planning for the future.

Key themes to be addressed, but not limited to:

  • The future workforce and understanding the changing world of work
  • Maximising workforce capabilities, building resilience and mitigating risks in your workforce
  • Valuing end-career workforces and creating flexible working arrangements suitable for businesses and employees
  • Managing the balance between workforce supply and service demands
  • The importance of HR Metrics and Analytics to achieve a successful future business model
