Workforce Planning Seminar 2021

Workforce insight has never been more important

Information

18 February 2021
Online Seminar



In Deloitte’s 2020 Global Human Capital Trends survey, 53% of respondents reported between half and all of their workforce will need to change their skills and capabilities in the next three years.

Creating insights into which skills and roles are needed in the (near) future will become an even more critical competitive advantage for organisations. Having a solid understanding of the strategic direction of the workforce, will enable you to develop, build, attract, hire or borrow those skills and capabilities, as well as the required mindset and culture to execute business strategy.

KR’s 2021 Workforce Planning Seminar will show you how to develop, adapt, and execute workforce plans, particularly when your environment is constantly changing. You’ll discover how to implement a fully-integrated approach to strategic workforce planning – drawing on all the different facets of this business-critical process.

Don’t miss this opportunity to build the technical skills and knowledge you need to align the changing needs of your organisation with your people strategy.

Reasons to attend the online Workforce Planning Seminar:

  • Increase your organisational agility by developing a more flexible and mobile workforce.
  • Design an effective people strategy to ensure you build the future skills needed.
  • Leverage data and analytics to enhance your workforce planning strategy.
  • Adapt your remuneration strategies and approaches for a contingent workforce.
  • Implement an effective workforce planning process across all levels of the organisation.

SETA grants and accreditation requirements

Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
