Companies cited shifting demographics and rapidly evolving business requirements as key factors driving the adoption of workforce planning. A recent study by Aberdeen Group found that 64% of organizations expect organizational efforts in workforce planning to increase in 2010.
"This research showcases how organizations that are taking a longer-term view of their talent needs, and are taking a collaborative approach to aligning their workforce plans to business priorities are seeing the greatest impact on business performance," said Mollie Lombardi, Research Analyst, Human Capital Management, Aberdeen.
The report also finds that more than twice as many of the top-performing companies are making workforce planning a top executive priority, with 28% of Best-in-Class organizations holding the CEO or Board of Directors primarily accountable for workforce planning, versus 13% of all organizations.
