EPSA event

Strategic Workforce Planning and Talent Management

21 June 2022
9.00 - 15:30 CET

About the event

Overall, in view of the shortage of skilled workers, new talent groups must be leveraged and recruitment processes redesigned. Administration must position itself as a competitive employer. For example, sustainable HR management, ecological awareness in the organization and corresponding measures, career opportunities at every phase of life, diversity management, participation and collaboration all offer incentives to attract and retain talent.

In times of permanent change and crisis public administration needs a solid strategic workforce planning (quantitative as well as qualitative) as the base for evidence-based strategies and policies. Therefore, this module focuses on skills needed to develop and establish at least a short-term HR-planning systems. In the second part we will have a look on some good practices to develop a demography strategy, generation management and “Green HRM” to support ecological transition.
