So what does a Workforce Planner really do? Think of yourself as the leader who ensures staff optimization by ensuring you have adequate resources to meet demand; and keep a close eye and resolve concerns on schedule adherence, service levels, absenteeism, and other applicable service and efficiency metrics. You will have the foresight in preparing for voice and non-voice volume seat occupancy, average handle time, and other factors that measure productivity and campaign performance. So not just anyone is qualified for this role. We make sure we get the best of the best, and ensure our employees are top-notch!
So, it’s time to imagine what it’s like being a Workforce Planner. Imagine that you’re an orchestrator, aligning with numerous programs to optimize employee productivity; coordinating with training and talent acquisition to forecast and manage staffing needs; and collaborating with IT to customize information systems - to help supervise fiscal activities within your team. You will monitor the accuracy of billing procedures for all clients within the site; identify strategies to improve campaign processes and opportunities to increase profitability. As you tackle your new tasks for the day, you know that it will lead to one thing: you must be effective in driving staffing forecasts that are best for our people and our business.
As a Workforce Planner, you will coordinate with operations, clients, and client services to be able to gather all the relevant data related to forecasting and calculation of program requirements. Along with this, you will be in charge of maintaining a roster of staff with accurate employee details which includes availability, preferences and skills.
What else? You will publish over/under snapshots, and create action plans that would either address any staffing gaps or minimize overages. You will be responsible for inputs in the online capacity plan tool in ensuring that the seating plan is accurate and adequate to meet operational needs.
