ACT Workforce Planning Network

Hear from the Department of Education, Skills & Employment (DESE) about their new innovative and iterative approach to strategic workforce planning, how implementing this approach changed workforce planning conversations at DESE, and how they developed DESE’s inaugural Enterprise Workforce Plan.

DESE will outline how it implemented an agile and flexible approach to workforce planning that is continuous and adaptable, emphasises solutions over process, and addresses immediate needs as they arise.

DESE will share with the AHRI ACT Workforce Planning Network their strategic workforce planning model which illustrates how their iterative approach supported the workforce planning team to leverage evidence and insights to devise and implement the right solutions and secure executive buy-in.

This forum is suitable for:

HR professionals in the roles of HR business partner and workforce planning.
