Many organisations still shy away from workforce planning because this important combined business practice and HR-led strategy appears to be too complicated a task.

This podcast encourages all businesses to start small and build on the data and analysis that will inform the practices and develop the key skills required for talent acquisition and management, succession planning and change. We bring together subject experts Dr Wendy Hirsh FCIPD, researcher and consultant for the Institute for Employment Studies, Ally Weeks MCIPD, HR content consultant at the CIPD, and Olly Britnell, Global Head of Analytics and HR Strategy at Experian, in the discussion.
