Remote community workforce plan

If you are an employer, you can get resources to help you with workforce planning.

The community workplace planning guide includes tools and resources to help you overcome workforce challenges in remote Aboriginal communities.

There are seven steps in the community workplace planning guide, each including tools to support the planning process:

Step 1. Community context

To create a successful workplace plan, you must understand the community.

You need to carry out research to find out about your community's:

  • key issues
  • needs.

Step 2. Workforce research

Analyse workforce supply and demand:

  • supply - find out how many people are currently working and also identify potential workers
  • demand - find out what jobs are currently available, the skills required and which employers are offering local work.

Step 3. Identify future needs

Identify future supply and demand, opportunities and challenges for your business and the industry in which you operate.

Step 4. Issues analysis

Analyse all of the data you’ve collected so far to identify issues that require consideration in the plan.

Step 5. Develop workforce strategies and actions

Develop a workforce action plan that responds to the issues that have been identified in the analysis.

Step 6. Implement the strategies and actions

Engage the appropriate individuals and/or organisations and work toward achieving identified actions and outcomes.

Step 7. Monitor, review and evaluate

Monitor the strategies and actions, and make changes that respond to changing workforce circumstances.
