Workforce planning is essential to successfully establish future talent needs aligned with organizational strategy!
I recommend your workforce plan extend out six (6) quarters, with a rolling quarter. The focus of your workforce plan is on your future talent needs and also your succession of leadership. You can extract from your workforce plan to create your staffing plan; which focuses on the current quarter (90 days), with a rolling month. You can complete a replacement chart for your immediate operational concerns within your staffing plan.
