Deloitte: How a Strategic Workforce Plan Can Improve Your Bottom Line

Aug 18, 2010 | Corporate Member News

Put workforce planning to work 

Companies across North America are encountering a critical workforce shortage. Dwindling pools of experienced local talent are forcing organizations to search further afield for new sources of skilled employees.

At the same time, changing demographics are affecting the workforce. Growth in the 55 to 64-year-old age group will account for about 70% of the net increase in Canada’s working age population in 2010 — and all of it by 2020*. Given that new hires can take several years to reach high proficiency levels, many organizations are worried about impending shortages of critical talent.

Preparing for talent shortages and juggling diverse, multi-generational workforces requires radical changes in your organization’s workforce philosophy. Put workforce planning to work offers insight into how a dynamic workforce plan can improve your bottom line.

Find out how a strategic approach can help your organization.

Serving our clients

“Deloitte” is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to selected clients. These firms are members of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, a Swiss Verein (“DTT”). Each member firm provides services in a particular geographic area and is subject to the laws and professional regulations of the particular country or countries in which it operates. DTT helps coordinate the activities of the member firms but does not itself provide services to clients. DTT and the member firms are separate and distinct legal entities, which cannot obligate the other entities. DTT and each DTT member firm are only liable for their own acts or omissions, and not those of each other. Each DTT Member Firm is structured differently in accordance with national laws, regulations, customary practice and other factors, and may secure the provision of professional services in their territories through subsidiaries, affiliates and/or other entities.
