12:00 PM Re-Evaluating Your Talent Acquisition, Management and Retention Strategies to Influence Strategic Workforce Planning

Organisational culture and its significance in employee engagement, recruitment and retention is essential in the current workforce. A strong organisational culture is not only critical for engaging, attracting and retaining talent, it is a crucial issue going forward as organisations have a very diverse and modern generation workforce coming up. This workshop will help you identify changes needed in your talent acquisition and retention strategies to prepare for the workforce of the future.

  • Minimising risks through departmental restructuring and how to use workforce analysis and planning to bridge skill and talent gaps
  • Ensuring input and collaboration from other department teams to better understand talent and timing needs for each department before refining an effective plan
  • Developing a clear and strategic approach to a team and individual’s career path, and ensuring this is at the forefront of staff planning to help influence the full potential of employees

9:10 AM Developing Talent and Succession Plans at PACCAR for the Next Generation Workforce

PACCAR’s talent development and succession plan program identified the talent gap between current capabilities against future requirements.

  • Analysing and identifying your future business and talent needs
  • Conducting a capability audit and gap analysis
  • Developing the Talent Acquisition, Development and Retention plan
  • Optimising and reinventing your existing workforce to meet future capability demands
