The final project for this course is the creation of a human resources workforce plan on a company of your choice (approved by your instructor). The current state of the chosen organization’s workforce will be examined and plans to meet organizational goals will be detailed. The workforce plan will describe the process that a human resource manager must take in order to achieve the desired results, supported by scholarly research. The final artifact will be a document worthy of presentation to future employers as a methodical approach in identifying and resolving talent development and workforce planning discrepancies. The proposed workforce plan should cover talent development and workforce planning as they relate to the organizational goals of projected growth and projected reductions, as well as current staffing level. The “big picture” view is to determine, from an HR standpoint, where the company wants to go, assess where they are at currently, and design a plan to get from where they are to where they want to be.
