4:35 PM How RMIT University Have Shifted From Metrics to Analytics to Build Capability and Create Executive Sponsorship Around Workforce Planning
RMIT delivers a knowledge product to people through its people, which account for 70% of operating cost. The University has been operating for 130 years ensuring each generation had the skills to contribute to their community and build skills for life and work. RMIT knows the next 130 years won’t be like the last. To ensure the university has the required capability and capacity in its people and systems a strategic workforce plan is being rolled out in 2017 and 2018 to help craft the future RMIT. In this session, Kevin will explore how RMIT have worked to secure executive sponsorship for their future plans in their workforce.
- Managing the balance between RMIT’s own workforce and producing the next generation of industry’s workforce
- Battling how affordability, changing student and employer expectations, globalisation of the workforce, digitalisation of education and microcredentialing can impact operations and therefore, workforce planning strategies
- Managing the expectations of both customer and industry to ensure the university is future focused and meets student and industry needs around employability
