Predicting Talent Gaps

November 16, 2021

Now more than ever it is important to predict talent gaps through predictive workforce planning. Getting a good picture of what makes up your workforce demographic can not only assist in developing a good sound plan but also alert to possible gaps that are mission critical to the organization. Looking at competency inventories, age, tenure, job functions, and retirement risk are all important, but companies are also looking at volatility in the market and what the primary drivers are. Companies are also paying closer attention to how people are moving around in the company, i.e. promotions, demotions, transfers, and voluntary terminations. Optimizing internal talent is a key activity when looking at emerging gaps. With a shortage of talent supply it is crucial to retain and develop talent within. A company that takes proactive action instead of being reactive to preventable talent emergencies possesses a true competitive advantage. Some talent gaps are requiring companies to look several years out and develop creative programs to address lean talent supply. Jobs that take 5-10 years to achieve full efficiency require a lot of foresight and some companies are taking a much closer look at both internal and external talent pipelines to prevent vulnerability of critical operations.
