Māori Health Provider Workforce Development Planning Toolkit
Workforce development has evolved from a narrow focus on the individual to a much broader and holistic concept. When we talk about workforce development nowadays, we include areas such as workforce analysis and planning, human resource management and capability development.
Workforce development covers thinking and action at the systems, organisational and individual levels. This integrated and tiered approach is needed to address complex issues such as global labour shortages, the pace of change and issues related to an ageing population.
The aim of this resource is to strengthen organisations by aligning the workforce to both current and future service demands. Focusing mainly at the organisational and individual level, the Korite toolkit is designed to help managers develop effective and comprehensive workforce plans to ensure they have the right people in the right jobs at the right time.
Health providers will find some tools they can adapt for their own setting in the second half of the toolkit.
