In this collaboration, our experts took a three-step approach.

Phase 1

This first and initial phase included collating data from disparate sources including, the human resource information system (HRIS) and employee-focus groups. A detailed analysis of these datasets revealed that the existing workforce planning model was not aligned with organizational requirements, thus our experts built a new data model  to ensure it was aligned with the goals and objectives they wished to achieve.

Phase 2

Since the client was facing a low employee engagement rate, our experts initiated a qualitative survey to understand the factors that were leading to unsatisfactory remarks of the workforce. Following this, the client was able to eradicate all the factors that were the main reason for the low employee engagement rate.

Phase 3

This final stage of this collaboration focused on the development and implementation of a robust workforce planning model to help the client succeed in their market expansion efforts. The client was able to make a list of geographical locations for expansion of operations. Our workforce planning model also enabled the client to make use of data to find locations with fewer companies who were competing for the same talent.
