About the Event

We are back with a LIVE edition of HCI’s Strategic Workforce Planning Certification Program in Geneva in October!

Why is HCI's Strategic Workforce Planning Programme a Must Atend Training?

  • Forecast and plan the workforce your organization will need to succeed in the future.
  • Skill gaps or shortages. Turnover. An aging workforce. Changing business models. Managing talent risks and expenses. The complexity and urgency of these issues make it feel impossible to plan more than a few months out.
  • You need a way to develop and implement a workforce plan that is agile and dynamic enough to help your organization thrive in today’s environment—while at the same time establishing yourself as a strategic partner to the business.
  • HCI’s model takes workforce planning out of the theoretical realm and gives you a methodology and set of tools that you can implement right away—beginning in class. 

HCI’s Strategic Workforce Planning Certification Program prepares high-potential and high-performing HR and business leaders to identify critical roles and competencies, develop organizational agility and align workforce planning with integrated human capital and business strategy.

Course participants will receive the official SWP Toolkit, which contains dozens of practical job aids that reinforce principles learned in order to save time and simplify execution. The kit includes tools for environmental scanning, assessing current state, risk mitigation, talent segmentation, cascading competencies and more.

The course is highly interactive, providing the opportunity for networking with HR leaders across industries. Over the course of two days, you will explore actionable concepts presented through case studies, multimedia learning modules, and interactive problem-solving.

What You Will Learn:

  • Assess Your Organization’s Readiness

  • Align Your Strategy

  • Scan the Environment

  • Construct Data-Based Scenarios

  • Develop an Action Plan
