At the end of 2014, representatives from Westpac and Kienco decided to collaborate on the creation of a face-to-face networking group for Strategic Workforce Planning practitioners. The first of these meetings was hosted by Westpac in February with representatives from 7 industries. The second meeting of the Sydney Cross-Industry Community of Practice in Strategic Workforce Planning will be hosted at Lend Lease in Sydney on the Friday the 19th of June. By joining, you have the opportunity to have your organisation exclusively represent your industry, learn from peers from other industry sectors, and establish relationships and networks with workforce planning professionals.
About the community:
Members share and network in a series of Sydney-based meetings, with each meeting focusing on specific topics of interest to members.
The community spans industry groups to ensure diversity of thought and innovation. The group will be restricted to one organisation per industry to encourage open sharing and collaboration, and to remove any conflicts of interest.
The topics will be community-led (rather than instructor-led), and focused on those areas of greatest interest to community members.
These informal meetings are for sharing insights, ideas, and experiences in Strategic Workforce Planning and is already becoming a catalyst for valuable partnerships & networks to be formed. If you are interested in representing your industry in the community, please contact me on LinkedIn or via our contact page.
