The right people in the right jobs doing the right things – this is no longer a fantasy for public-sector leaders but instead a requirement for long-term success. Workforce planning strategically aligns people management with business strategy. Workforce plans should be flexible, ongoing and linked to strategies. CPS HR integrates strategic planning, program management, organizational analysis, human resources practices and budget requirements into one comprehensive workforce plan aligned with the vision of the organization. At CPS HR, our work results in a comprehensive strategic plan containing strategies that could include recruitment and retention activities, automation/technology solutions, succession planning, training and development and performance management activities. CPS HR’s workforce planning provides managers with a focused and strategic approach to make not only human resource decisions, but to anticipate changes and proactively address workforce issues.
