Do you have a strategic workforce plan that meets your future needs?


The work we do is changing rapidly. It is estimated that more than half the workforce will need reskilling in the next 5 years. Action is needed now to ensure we have the workforce and skills we need tomorrow.

  • People will need to be redeployed from products or industries in decline to those that are high-value and growing.
  • People will need to have new skills in new products and technologies.
  • People will need to be reskilled and upskilled as their jobs change due to automation and technology.  

Having the right jobs and a workforce with the right skills in the right place requires a plan.

Sustaining or creating high-value jobs in any sector or region requires an integrated strategic workforce plan which informs and aligns actions taken by leaders across business, education, governmental agencies, and sector bodies. It needs to be informed by long-term business drivers, investment and infrastructure planning, and education and training delivery, but also dynamic enough to respond to new opportunities and changing requirements.

We have extensive experience of working with leaders in industry and government agencies to develop and deliver plans which provide and sustain the workforce required by businesses around the world. We are adept at addressing complex situations, identifying systemic issues, providing constructive challenge and helping prioritise key actions.  Leaders across business and local government have valued our strategic perspective, our judgement, and our independence.

“The work IPC have produced is exceptional – it is now being held up as an exemplar across the UK automotive sector.”

Paul Butler – CEO North East Automotive Alliance
