Workforce and succession plans help state organizations understand the workforce implications of current and future business operations so that strategies can be developed to proactively ensure a capable workforce is in place to perform the mission and achieve strategic objectives.  CalHR analyzes department workforce plans to identify workforce trends that could benefit from statewide solutions.  A summary of 2016 statewide workforce challenges and trends can be viewed in the 2016 Statewide Workforce Planning Report (PDF).
