If you’re responsible for workforce planning in your organisation then our practical workbook is for you.

This resource will help you to see how you and your workers are integral to the delivery of high quality, personalised and safe care. Effective workplace planning is good for your business and for those who use or commission your service.

The workbook is designed to support workforce planning in small and medium organisations. It explains:

  • what workforce planning is
  • why it’s important
  • what are the principles for it
  • who should be involved in it
  • how it fits with how services are commissioned
  • how workforce information should be used
  • how to do workforce planning using a step by step method.

It also includes key questions to answer, action points and recognised business tools to take you through the Analyse-Plan-Do-Review method of workforce planning. The workbook comes with a USB preloaded with interactive business tools and templates which support the planning process. This allows users to share the information, review and update it and keep track of the planning journey.
