Workforce Planning

Workforce Planning

Workforce planning, development and retention are fundamental elements for resources companies’ successful future development. Elements of workforce planning enable resources companies to accurately pinpoint where, when and how staff will be sourced and up-skilled, ultimately ensuring that companies operate in an optimized productive environment. An effective workforce plan can be used to support strategic decision making, avoid litigation, evaluate programs and policies and support daily operational plans.

A fundamental requirement unique to the resources sector is a high degree of safety, due to the physical nature of many roles and the location of job sites involving a high degree of hazardous situations. The safety element is generally highly visible within a resources company workforce plan.
