Workforce planning tool

About the tool

The Aged Care Workforce Industry Council’s Workforce Planning Tool is designed with, and for, people who work in the aged care sector.

The tool is relevant to both residential and in-home care providers, including Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) providers.

The tool is confidential, free, easy to use, and available online. It supports workforce activity planners to understand how to adopt proactive workforce planning practices.

The Workforce Planning Tool has been designed to be interactive. It creates opportunities for workforce activity planners to ‘play’ with workforce data and model future workforce scenarios. It will help to capture your organisation’s workforce insights and playback those insights in visual concepts, to help you  understand the current state of your workforce and plan for future scenarios.

Unlike other workforce planning products, our tool is nuanced to the specific needs of the aged care sector. The tool will help you to establish a baseline understanding of your organisation’s workforce and lay a foundation for you to create a sustainable workforce plan.

The tool provides educational resources for activity planners to deepen their knowledge and understanding of workforce planning.
