Workforce and Succession Planning 101

The composition and needs of the higher ed workforce are changing dramatically before our eyes. An aging workforce, a new generation of workers entering the workforce, increased competition for talent, elevated use of technology and an increased focus on diversity and inclusion are requiring institutions to develop a plan for this new workforce landscape. Without a clear and robust workforce and succession plan and strategy, HR departments will be forced into a reactive mode that is frustrating, more costly and less effective. Learn how to tackle these important workforce challenges and plan for a sustainable and productive future workforce. You'll leave this session with tangible guidance on anticipating upcoming changes, aligning your workforce to meet multiple demands, responding promptly to changes and staying focused on your institution’s strategic goals.
