Workforce planning is the systematic process for identifying and addressing the gaps between the workforce of today and the human resource needs of tomorrow. It provides the foundation for strategic human resource decisions. As with any planning, this process draws together program management, human resources, budgeting, and program staff. In developing a workforce plan, organizations should systematically address the issues driving change.
