KellyOCG to bring Human Capital Institutes Strategic Workforce Planning course to European market
Through this partnership, HCI can help more employers around the world access the insight and best practices to better manage their workforces and drive positive business results.
As a complex mix of economic, global and multi-generational considerations demand that organizations move beyond traditional – and simple – headcount calculations, Strategic Workforce Planning has become one of the most sought-after competencies in HR today. Therefore, it is crucial for HR, recruitment and organizational development professionals, as well as line managers and executives, to understand how they can move beyond traditional manpower planning and adopt a qualitative decision framework that aligns workforce variables with a broader organizational strategy.
Through its comprehensive SWP certification course, HCI aim to help individuals improve their proficiency in all aspects of workforce planning, including forecasting, problem solving and business strategy. Attendees of the course learn how to determine the most critical competencies and aptitudes needed for high performance growth, respond to rapid change with comprehensive contingency planning, and identify and execute against specific workforce, management and leadership gaps.
By partnering with KellyOCG, HCI is able to deliver its SWP certification course, the most recognized, gold-standard business credential that proves knowledge of strategic workforce planning models and concepts, to the European market. In order to conduct the program, HCI will train and certify KellyOCG instructors to lead the two-day course. KellyOCG will then facilitate the course in various locations across Europe as well as onsite in several European organizations in a corporate training environment.
“Our SWP certification is an important career achievement for all high-potential and high-performing practitioners in HR, giving them the expertise to make the crucial business decisions needed to align workforce planning with business strategy,” said Carl Rhodes, HCI’s chief executive officer. “We are pleased to partner with KellyOCG to bring this industry-leading certification course to Europe and help more individuals adopt the best practices that lead to greater workforce planning success.”
“HCI is well regarded throughout the industry for setting the standard for the delivery of the latest ideas and proven strategies for effective human capital management,” said Susan DeFazio, senior director of KellyOCG. “We are very excited to work together to provide HR professionals across Europe with the insight on how they can foster high performance and growth in their organizations through strategic workforce planning.”
The first KellyOCG facilitated SWP certification course will be held in London on March 26 – 27, 2014 at the Euston House London. Registration details for this event can be accessed at: http://www.hci.org/event-registration/1154836?classinstancenid1860748.
