Guidance for HR Executives at Midsized Companies

Fewer than 3 in 10 HR executives are effective at planning for and staffing the talent needed to execute strategy.

HR also faces a massive retention problem: 3 in 4 high performers are considering leaving their current organization.

To better align workforce planning with business strategy, prioritize collaboration with Finance.

Neither workforce planning nor operational planning is effective if done in a vacuum.

Read the blog "Bridging the CHRO/CFO Divide" to learn more about how partnering with Finance is critical to improving the impact of strategic workforce plans.

Also, use our Workforce Analysis Questionnaire to identify the talent management strategies needed to achieve key objectives.
