The world of work is changing. Technology and seismic social changes caused radical
transformation on how businesses and workers interact. The workforce is arguably the most
important tangible asset of any organisation. In an age of evolving business environment,
Boards, CEOs and HR leaders frequently declare that workforce planning and data- driven
decision-making are top priorities to achieve its projected business plans. However, many
organisations still find it difficult to plan, measure and optimise its workforce to its full capability. Failure to do so can directly impact operational output leading to costly downturn.

Akolade has just launched The Agile Workforce Planning Forum being held from 19 - 21 March 2019 in Melbourne, which brings together senior thought leaders from the private and public sector to discuss real-world challenges and strategies regarding workforce planning and strategy execution. Business agility is no longer for the brazen few. In short, to have a reactive workforce, the process that supports workforce planning needs to be flexible and adaptable. Businesses that recognise the importance of having an agile workforce will ensure long-term sustainability and success not just for the business but the relationship between the business and workers.
