This two day Masterclass introduces the discipline and principles of Strategic Workforce Planning, provides detailed case studies and examples of each part of the methodology, and demonstrates approaches that will allow the participants to contribute in a very tangible way to organisational success.

Attendees will be equipped with the framework and tools to begin a best practise Strategic Workforce Planning initiative in their own organisation, and will have an opportunity to network with peers on the challenges facing modern organisations in a time of unprecedented change.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Align workforce strategy to organisational strategy;
  • Identify where targeted HR Initiatives deliver the highest strategic return on investment;
  • Perform organisational analysis using workforce analytics;
  • Identify and take advantage of the workforce, consumer, and economic dynamics shaping the organisation of tomorrow;
  • Exploring alternate futures through strategic futuring and scenario planning;
  • Close the gaps between the workforce of today and the preferred workforce of the future; and
  • Engage the business in workforce strategy.

Executives are demanding that for HR to earn a seat at the table, they need to be able to contribute to strategy in a meaningful way - Strategic Workforce Planning provides the framework for doing this. We hope you will join us in the course that has been described as "a thought provoking and clarifying call to action".

This course is intended for practitioners developing strategic workforce planning initiatives within their own organisations. Consultants, please contact HRNZ prior to registration to determine whether this course is appropriate for your needs.

Registrations close 08:30am Monday 27 June.

About the Presenter - Alex Hagan

Alex Hagan is the Founder and CEO at Kienco, working with global organisations to build their future workforce through Strategic Workforce Planning and Workforce Data Science. Alex has worked on strategic workforce planning initiatives in every continent except Antarctica, and his current consulting work impacts tens of thousands of employees spanning 10 countries.

Alex serves as Adjunct Faculty at The Conference Board's Strategic Workforce Planning Academies in New York and Brussels. He was formerly the Product Manager at Aruspex, where he designed workforce planning and analytics software utilised by several of the Global Fortune 500. He has been frequently quoted in the BRW, the Australian Financial Review, The Dominion Post, online, and on radio in relation to workforce strategy and analytics.


"Good balance of theoretical and practical knowledge and I came away with some good ideas to work on. I would recommend it as an excellent way to break down the huge topic of Workforce Planning into a process which can be chunked down and managed." HR Manager, EPA

''I really appreciated Alex's obvious wealth of practical hands-on consulting experience with clients in this area. Great to hear him share some good (and local) stories and experiences. Personable, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about the topic. I liked that he encouraged our feedback and suggestions. I would recommend to others because Alex knows his stuff, and has a logical, tried and tested approach to Strategic Workforce Planning." Capability Partner, Optimism

"This is the best workshop/ training I have been on in a long time. Not only was the content intellectually stimulating, but I have also been able to apply the principles I have learnt immediately. It really shook up my frame of reference and has changed the way I think about strategy and HR in general. Its easy to get stuck in one perspective and become 'an unconscious competent' when you have been in one discipline for a while. This session absolutely re-inspired me and has changed the way I practice HR." Jess, Media Industry.

"Not only was the information and learning useful and applicable for my organisations challenges, Alex's in depth knowledge of the subject matter and ability to talk across a range of organisational challenges was extremely useful." Human Resources Manager, Metro Glasstech

"I feel privileged to have had access to Alex's time and knowledge. He's fun to listen to, shares information in a way that helps generate insight, and gives pragmatic tools to use. What more can you ask for?" Organisational Development Manager, WEL Networks
