Integrated business and HR planning is an important building block in continuously improving and building the human capacity of your organization to deliver services to clients. Integrated business and HR planning is the set of processes by which a business line manager identifies the different factors influencing the delivery of their services, programs and business priorities of their organization and the implications for workforce requirements, in effect the “current and future needs”. Management assesses the current workforce, the labour market and the short and long term HR needs related to their organization structure, employee skills and competencies and identifies critical positions. Current and future human resources gap analysis is done, and workplace and workforce plans are developed to address the gaps and support the achievement of broader organizational objectives. Management is then able to review and measure results and progress for their organization against their annual plans. HR planning can mitigate risks associated with lack of balance between workload requirements and capacity, aging workforce, tight labour markets, technological change, and so on. It can also help to identify optimal strategies and activities for such important HR management components as recruitment, staffing, onboarding, performance, training, development, talent management, employee engagement, succession and promotion.
