What is Workforce Planning?

Workforce planning is a process of strategically managing the supply and demand of your workforce through future-focussed plans.  It may include succession plans, forecasting staff needs against business plans, monitoring industry development (i.e. technology) and identifying exactly what skills your business needs now and in the future.

What is workforce development? 

Workforce development is activity to improve your workforce, bridging the gap between the current skills in your workplace and the skills desired to reach full business potential. These activities should align with your workforce plan, building the capacity of your workforce to meet the identified skill goals. Activities can include job design, recruitment, retention, OH&S management, training, career development, performance management, reward and recognition programs and organisational change initiatives.
