Dear Colleagues,


After the transformation caused by the pandemic in the workforce, organizations have adapted their way of working and their planning in general. In this field, human resources was one of the aspects most affected by the pandemic effects, but also by the new work formats (in the office/at home/hybrid). The action planning of human resources underwent a 360 degree turn, with the implementation of a new vision that observes workers for their work capacity and not so much for the number of hours in the office. Even so, this transformation did not occur in the same way in all organizations. There are certainly differences between organizations, which directly imply the choice of more qualified workers. Thus, it is concluded that Workforce planning is an ongoing process, and organizations should continually monitor and adjust their strategies as needed to ensure they are meeting their workforce needs effectively.


Knowing that the goal of workforce planning is to ensure that an organization has the right people with the right skills in the right roles at the right time and also knowing that effective workforce planning can help organizations to manage costs, improve productivity, and respond to changes more quickly and effectively, it’s important collect the experiences that have been implemented and consider their impacts.


Thus, we are interested in research articles and reviews in this area of study, to analyze, for example, the current workforce, future workforce needs, workforce gaps, strategies to fill gaps and monitoring of the process.


We look forward to receiving your contributions.
