Workforce Planning Global were engaged to guide YSAS in building its workforce planning capabilities, to establish a systematic approach to strategic and operational workforce planning, and to develop a workforce planning framework.

Strategy Development and Planning: Workforce Planning Global excelled in delivering all the outcomes on time and within budget. This project was a pivotal tranche of strategic work that underpinned an organisational transformation change program. YSAS is now well positioned in its industry sector and workforce market for growth and longer term financial sustainability as one of the first (if not the first) not-for-profit organisation in Victoria to have a robust and fit-for-purpose Workforce Plan and strategy aligned to internal and national standards and best practice.

Organisational Design/Transformation: Workforce Planning Global designed and delivered a modernised option of a new organisation design and workforce profile that has now been readily adopted to underpin the rapid implementation of a transformed workforce structure and function and that is also a key input into the renegotiation of a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement.

Human Capital Management: The insight analysis and practical reports produced utilising the WPG workforce optimisation tool have enabled our organisation to identify and proactively manage critical staff positions and to plan human management for 3- and 5-year future horizons. The Workforce Plan has also facilitated the better positioning and influence over our government funders sector workforce current and future state workforce plans and strategies.

Retention: The methodology adopted enabled our key executives and functional managers to dynamically understand the current state and to consider and plan options for stepped changes in the current organisational policies and protocol for recruitment and retention of quality employees. With their guidance and wealth of knowledge and global experience we have been able to break open innovative approaches to recruiting hard to fill roles and attraction and retention of key employees to be located in regional areas.

Training and Development: The services provided evidenced their high level of skill in their training our key employees in workforce planning principles, methodologies, strategy development and practical (and plain language) effective implementation. This was complemented by the comprehensive documented workforce planning standards, contemporary research and on-line tools. The outcomes of the products received through working with Workforce Planning Global have also directly contributed to a new employee training and development framework, strategy and annual plan for the organisation. Our organisation now better understands the essential component of training and development as part of an overall modern, robust and agile workforce plan.
