Workforce Planning

CT Management Group’s Workforce Planning, supported by a well-developed Workforce Strategy and Improvement Plans ensure that Council has the workforce capability that the organisation requires for service delivery and a sustainable future.

If Councils are to deliver all that is required under their Council Plans, their people capability must match Council’s servicing requirements. Accordingly, the priority of Workforce Strategy planning and resourcing must be elevated

Experts warn that local government is among the sectors most “exposed” to an ageing workforce, underscoring the importance of good workforce planning. Alex Lawrie, a researcher at the Institute for Public Policy and Governance at the University of Technology Sydney has noted (2016 census) that 40% of local government workers were aged over 50 and due to retire in the next 10 to 15 years. The data also shows the ageing of local government workforce is concentrated in key groups, with asset and infrastructure management among the most affected.
