How Workflow Automation Takes the Guesswork Out of Workforce Planning
Published: July 21, 2022

We all know that the last few years have been particularly hard on HR professionals. Between rolling out work-from-home policies and having to navigate the ongoing talent shortage, immediate challenges are making it hard to find time for planning the future.

Giving HR departments the resources necessary to thrive is truly essential to help them find time to better align goals and focus on planning. That’s where workforce planning comes into the mix. Workforce planning isn’t just about staffing, it’s about strategically identifying gaps and finding ways to fill those gaps with the right resources. Even fully staffed businesses should look to employ this to ensure their resources are being used in the right spots. 

For many, automation helps give key insights into employee performance and provides the data needed to make strategic decisions. And, automating paper-based HR tasks frees up a ton of time for professionals to focus on strategy, instead of in the weeds with follow-ups and emails.

In this new post for SHRM NYC, Steve Wilson, President of OnTask, covers all of the ways that data and automation enhance workforce planning initiatives. In this article, you’ll learn:

  • What workforce planning is
  • Why the right data is so important for planning
  • How HR automation enhances workforce planning
