WHY ATTEND? Any business strategy that fails to identify and address staffing implications is a strategy that cannot be implemented. Effective staffing strategy is not just a matter of hiring and firing, and it certainly is not as simple as keeping control of headcount. Knowing in advance what you need to do to have the "right" people in the "right" place at the "right" time is a daunting task. In order to support your company's business strategy fully, you must have a system that allows you to plan for and keep track of the movement of people into, around, and out of the organization.
Most organizations understand the benefits that a long-term approach to staff planning can bring, but few actually develop staffing strategies and workforce plans that are effective and drive decision-making on an ongoing basis. For some, their approaches are ineffective and expected benefits just aren't realized. For others, problems are compounded by uncertain business plans and managers who lack the skills and understanding they need to predict their long-term staffing needs accurately. In any of these cases, the staffing plans that result are rarely implemented, and thus the strategic planning process is not viewed as a valued component of the business planning process.
HRevents has assembled a distinguished group of leading practitioners who have developed and implemented staffing strategies, workforce plans, and staffing tools that really "work." Their approaches are pragmatic and rooted in the "real world" - not conceptual models that have yet to prove their worth.

You'll LEARN HOW TO:
* Forecast workforce demand
* Conduct pre-cruitment: The art and science of being prepared for recruiting
* Attract, retain and grow employees for competitive advantage
* Consult with your clients on the development of staffing strategies
* Make recruiting the "corporate hero" once again
* Become a coaching leader: How to develop a retention strategy to keep your best people
* Develop the corporate recruiting web site of the future
* Outsource recruiting: can it really work?
* Identify retention strategies for a global market
* Develop a retention-focused culture
* Leverage strategic succession management: Knowledge transfer and the retiring worker
