Assemble the right mix of people, skills, and coverage to maintain business momentum.
Capacity planning takes more than filling seats and covering shifts. HR has to think ahead, consider skills and training, and work with the business to meet operational expectations. Reactive capacity fixes and short-term remedies just push demand challenges down the road, and a lack of real-time data and comprehensive analysis saps confidence and wastes resources.
Planful helps you work with the business to accurately identify capacity needs, build and nurture a workforce that fits skills requirements and operational demands, and keep workforce capacity and shift coverage tightly aligned as that demand changes. Work from the same single-source-of-truth data as finance and accounting teams to ensure confidence that workforce plans can meet business goals without exceeding financial targets.
Combine financial and HRIS data to build forward-thinking strategies, align capacity with demand, and prevent disruptions from derailing momentum. Financially justify recruiting, training, and other HR investments to stay ahead of demand shifts and ensure sales rep coverage to hit quotas.
Spot capacity spikes before they happen to alleviate burnout and turnover. Provide flexible work options, enable elastic operations, and work with the Office of the CFO to model capacity scenarios.
Use a single platform for end-to-end business and financial planning that integrates data, enables collaboration, and keeps everyone in sync. Get granular with capacity plans, ensure shift coverage, and consider the cost of bonuses and incentives.
