The lifeblood of any organization is its workforce. Optimal workforce planning involves a continual process to align the needs of the organization not only today, but also tomorrow, to ensure it can meet service, production, and organizational objectives. Vanguard Predictive Planning combines state-of-the-art predictive capabilities to determine the future needs of the workforce, with market-leading abilities to identify capacity constraints and determine optimized recommendations.

Through unified planning with Vanguard Predictive Planning, workforce planning is truly integrated with all lines of business. Detailed headcount and compensation costs are natively linked to the financial plan. If a change is made to a division’s headcount, the finance team can see the impact in real-time. Leveraging pre-built templates, organizations can reduce hours of wasted labor calculating salaries, bonuses, benefits, and other compensation. With Vanguard Predictive Planning, all of these activities can be modeled and forecasted instantly.
