Head of Global Workforce Analytics
Business decisions are supposed to rely on expected financial returns. However, one of the main drivers of financial returns (the cost of a company’s workforce) is often poorly predicted, leading to cycles of hurried recruitment and mass layoffs. One of the key reasons is the habit of conducting workforce planning based on headcount, where costs are either an afterthought or based on misleading averages. Ericsson has broken this pattern with a cost-of-workforce model that allows real-time scenario building and shows future changes in the workforce as changes versus current costs.
You will learn how to:
· Define a cost of workforce model based on variables that are relevant for future cost prediction
· Build workforce scenarios that predict future workforce costs in real time
· Track progress towards desired cost targets (well in advance of financial statements)
