Te Pou has developed the Getting it right workforce planning and development framework specifically to support DHB and NGO services to undertake and get the most out of their workforce planning activities. The framework describes how health policy, strategy, and population health needs are translated into a workforce that is best able to meet future service needs.
As part of the Getting it right framework, a series of resources are available to support organisations to undertake future-focused, people-centred workforce planning and development activities. These resources will support services to make effective workforce decisions so they are well placed to deliver on health strategy and policy intentions or directions.
These resources provide useful information for people who are new to workforce planning and development, and also meet the needs of more experienced people by providing better practice tips and ideas. The information provided is applicable across multiple levels, including individual services, organisations, groups and networks within DHB-locality, regionally and nationally.
