About the book
What is the cost of employees today and what will this be in the future? This book explains how to take a data-driven approach to workforce planning and allow the business to reach its strategic goals.
Organizational Planning and Analysis (OP&A) is a data-driven approach to workforce planning. It allows HR professionals, OD practitioners and business leaders to monitor an organization's activities and analyse business data to regularly adjust plans to ensure that the business succeeds. This book covers everything from how to build an OP&A function, the difference between strategic and operational workforce planning and managing demand and supply, as well as matching people to new or changing roles and developing robust succession planning. Organizational Planning and Analysis also covers how OP&A works with HR operations including recruitment, L&D, reward and performance management and includes a chapter on new human capital analytics which allow a business to improve the return on investment for each of its employees.
Full of practical advice and step by step guidance, this book is also supported by case studies from organizations including KPMG, Sainsbury's, WPP, Accenture, TSB, Johnson & Johnson, Aer Lingus and FedEx.
