Workforce Planning Initiative

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Workforce Planning Initiative

Strategic workforce planning – the process of analyzing current and projected future workforce needs and taking action to ensure we have the right people in the right jobs with the right skills at the right time – is a best practice of high-performing organizations.  Our landscape of rapidly changing jobs and technology, as well as the approaching workforce crisis due to megatrends we cannot control, reinforce the need for proactive planning.  The Human Resources Division under the direction of Administration and Finance is leading the implementation of Executive Department-wide Workforce Planning Initiative.  Learn more about the Workforce Planning Initiative.
