How we Define SWP


We define SWP as: “the sum of actions taken to acquire, retain, develop, motivate and deploy human capital in the service of an organisation’s mission”.


Ours is an asset-based, whole-of-workforce approach (including the contingent workforce) over the employment life cycle. It is much more than a suite of HR policies or ad hoc HR initiatives such as talent management, succession planning and workforce planning (supply and demand, forecasting).


Furthermore, our emphasis is on the “here and now” (i.e., the legacy workforce) – getting the workforce strategy and management foundation right – as well as forecasting and configuring the future workforce.
