New course ‘Innovative workforce management and labour time planning’

During this training many case studies will be used in order to explain how these methodologies and tools are used in practice.

Why is a continuous focus on labour time planning a necessity?

Market circumstances in which organisations operate change faster and faster and uncertainties increase. To be able to react fast and agile, analysing and adapting existing production and labour planning are conditions for survival. In other words: effective time management needs to be organised, from a strategic, tactical and operational perspective.

Optimisation of time management within an organisation will:

– improve utilisation of available production facilities;
– increase the flexibility of the organisation as a whole;
– make it easier to anticipate and act propactively instead of acting reactively;
– strengthen national and international market positioning and competitive power;
– facilitate possibilities of meeting changing employee wishes and requirements;
– decrease complaints of employees, illness and attrition rates;
– improve employer branding inside out.

In practice, companies tend to deal with staffing and labour time issues in a conventional way, instead of applying a more innovative approach. And as such miss out on more adequate and suitable solutions. This training offers participants practical and theoretical tools to deal with these challenges in a systematic, and at the same time more creative, manner.
