Revolutionary Workforce Planning Part 2 – Advanced Foundations and Techniques; Workforce Planning Expert Brian Wilkerson Releases the Next White Paper in This Series

Share Article

Revolutionary Workforce Planning, a three-part series by Brian Wilkerson of Revolution Advisors LLC, recognizes that in the companies that have achieved a more advanced level of workforce planning, there are a number of common critical foundations that allow them to get there. Having these foundations in place provides both the analytic power and flexibility required to run some of the more advanced analyses and to have them be effective.

This type of advanced planning can unlock significant advantages for organizations, and while it takes time and investment on the part of the organization, the ROI is significant.

Revolution Advisors LLC notes organizations who fully implement the basics of workforce planning and do the more advanced analysis are finding significant benefits in terms of cost reduction, retention, engagement, productivity, and achievement of goals. Part two of the White Paper series on workforce planning will be released on Wednesday, April 16.

In this white paper, workforce planning expert Brian Wilkerson offers insight on critical foundations and technique such as:

  •     Data Eras
  •     Macro Factors
  •     Data Mining
  •     Turnover Modeling
  •     Contingent Labor Analysis
  •     Location Analysis
  •     Outsourcing Analysis

Parts one and two of the Revolutionary Workforce Planning white paper can be downloaded at no cost at the Revolution Advisors website.

There are a number of discussions of emerging trends within the white paper: “More recently an interesting dynamic has emerged that is impacting forecast accuracy and forecasting techniques. Some organizations are finding that the future projections with regards to productivity and performance of teams are losing accuracy,” Wilkerson states. “This is particularly true in organizations where there have been significant layoffs or turnover, and then the teams were starting to build back up. Predictive measures of turnover and other mobility factors were on target, but as the teams increased in staffing they did not achieve the productivity expected.”
