Headcount modelling is about creating a mathematical model to look at temporal changes in headcount.
This publication covers a modelling approach, including samples of tasks that the headcount model can inform within the following analysed dimensions:
- As-is headcount analysis
- Headcount demand forecasting
- Headcount supply forecasting
- Demand and supply balancing
Each dimension features sample modelling outputs based on a certain set of parameters such as personnel turnover and average retirement age.
A headcount model can use an almost unlimited variety of user-defined parameters with a capability for online, scenario-based analysis of company development.
