How it works

Understanding the current state of talent that is available and deployed across the enterprise is an essential part of workforce planning. It informs the internal "supply" side of the supply vs. demand analysis that will ultimately be conducted.

Collecting demographic information currently available on employees can be done by performing a scan of available HR systems and databases. Such data will, at minimum, be housed in systems used to process employee data and transactions (such as those for payroll and/or employee benefits, Human Resource Information (HRIS), talent management systems, etc.). In addition, further data may be available in existing data warehouses, databases, or spreadsheets from which HR reports are developed and distributed.
