Mercer Training Series - Strategic Workforce Planning

27 April - 28 April 2016  United Arab Emirates, Dubai


  • Introduction

    Organizations are good at identifying and mitigating most business risk. Yet, when it comes to finding the right workforce today — and forecasting for tomorrow — many companies are at a loss. Why? Shifting demographics, globalization, and technology are changing the available talent pool and altering the traditional employer-employee relationship. The changes are profound for all industries, but especially for those that rely on experienced, highly skilled employees. We have a solution. Mercer’s systematic approach forecasts risks; finds the right balance of quantity, quality, and location of critical talent; and pinpoints internal supply of and demand for critical skills and roles under multiple business scenarios. Our integrated approach identifies and addresses critical gaps between current workforce resources and future needs, and finds actionable solutions.
