Workforce Planning

How talent research supports strategic workforce planning

Customer expectations are always evolving, and to meet these new demands, businesses need to be able to hire the best talent in the right roles at the correct time. By starting with talent intelligence to inform workforce planning, and achieving those plans with talent mapping and pipelining, we can help you bridge the gap between the present and the future. 

Every company we partner with has one common challenge, and that is being able to identify the skills the business will need, where and when they will be required and how they can acquire them.

Whether it’s steady growth, adapting to a changing market, a sudden influx of business wins, or looking to deliver against a 5-10 year plan, organisations can quickly find themselves having to hire at scale or bring completely new skills into the business. When it comes to building a workforce plan, having the right research is essential. 

Speak to an expert

At Armstrong Craven, our talent intelligence can inform workforce decisions based on the market, your competitors, and the available talent. We can help you answer critical talent questions like:

  • What are the skills of the future?
  • Where is this talent located?
  • What will motivate them?
  • How will we attract them?
  • How are our competitors hiring this talent, and how competitive is the market?
  • Is there a strong enough supply from academia and which universities are producing the best graduates?

This talent insight lays the groundwork to the next steps, identifying the talent and creating pipelines filled with candidates ready to join your business when the vacancies arise.
