Bersin & Associates and The Newman Group are undertaking a study on the critical role of workforce planning in today’s volatile economic climate.

The objective of the study is to identify the current state of maturity in workforce planning processes, level of ownership, range of maturity in audiences served, processes included, and level of integration with other business planning processes.

Here at Aruspex, we believe this study is for the good of all workforce planners because it will validate what those in the workforce planning community have been advocating for many years: strategic workforce planning is a necessity, and current times such as economic downturn is no expcetion.

We encourage you to share your workforce planning insights by taking the survey below:
