Workforce Planning

The Workforce Planning project was established at the request of the HR Directors Network to enable improved intelligence around current and future workforce. The increased emphasis upon the effective use of resources and upon placing workforce planning clearly in the context of partnership working, place based budgets and the need for major workforce changes across services and organisations – poses a huge challenge for local government in the region.

The project has built on the support that LGYH has previously offered to councils in terms of Workforce Planning advice, tools and resources. At a time of economic downturn and the government spending reductions, it has been even more important to emphasise the need for effective workforce planning across local authorities in the region. Our approach has been to build capacity and identify appropriate support as well as to start to embed the culture and practice of workforce planning.
