Frequently Asked Questions

Workforce planning, also known as headcount planning, workforce management, HR planning and Human Capital Management (HCM) is a process that organizations use to identify and analyze the workforce of today and to plan and prepare for the headcount requirements, salaries, benefits and associated costs for the future.

Employees and associated expenses are the most expensive resource within most organizations. Therefore, being able to manage the workforce efficiently and accurately is paramount to any organization that is focused on performance and managing costs while maximizing their productivity and output.

It depends. Every company is different and requires HR planning that aligns with their industry and business best practices. Kepion’s platform allows for total flexibility in how organizations manage their headcount, providing several different options and levels of detail for analyzing, modeling and preparing their workforce plans.

Workforce planning requires accurate HR data from source systems to perform workforce analysis and reporting, coupled with detailed, enterprise-level security to ensure salaries and other sensitive data are only available to the appropriate individuals. Workforce planning solutions also require the ability to plan for workforce activities and events such as hiring, retiring, attrition, temporary and hourly staffing, as well as the ability to manage potentially complex calculations to take into account the benefits, bonuses, commissions, taxes and annual raises and promotions for employees.
