Building Workforce Capability for Future Requirements in the Changing Healthcare Operating Environment
In a recent Australian Government report, healthcare workers and carers are represented as one of the largest industries projected to contribute the most to Australia’s employment growth by 2020. Against the backdrop of an ageing population and technological disruptions in health, the industry must collectively increase by over 250 000 employees. While the industry is aware and have taken measures to improve workforce productivity, many organisations are still challenged with meeting the increased demand for health services and long-term care.
Co-located with Workforce Planning for Public Sector, IQPC is proud to host the 11th Annual Workforce Planning for Healthcare Summit 2017, taking place in Sydney between the 28th – 29th November. This event will serve as an opportunity to learn how to maximise the effectiveness of staff through strategic workforce planning, understanding current capability and scenario planning for the future.
Key themes to be addressed, but not limited to:
- Changing models of care and the impact on workforce demand analysis
- Increasing your employee’s exposure to rapidly changing environments through innovation and adaptability
- Organisational restructuring and its influence on organisational design and strategic workforce planning
- Encouraging conversations on retirements to manage capacity and casual workforces
- Utilising workforce analytics and data for performance measurement and improvement
