Using mii People Planning, Liaison Workforce is delivering this project in order to digitise the manual exercise. It uses a survey-style front end to harvest data but unlike traditional surveys, the conversation does not end there. The solution facilitates signposting and generates valuable workforce intelligence, which provides a forward view. mii People
Planning has saved the Trust 156 manual hours of collating data, and 2,434 hours of admin tasks which are now performed automatically.
The benefit to the Trust is an opportunity to retain more key individuals that are at risk of leaving and begin recruiting earlier to reduce the number of times a position is left vacant, which impacts service delivery.
To date, mii People Planning has identified 114 planned new roles that the Trust was not aware of before this exercise. Of these, 60 out of the 114 new roles are now on track to be worked on ahead of time.
This will also enable the Trust to conduct earlier performance management, providing the necessary support that the individual needs, as well as targeted training programmes for those who have learning and development requirements. During this exercise, mii People Planning has so far helped to identify 35 instances of itchy feet with an opportunity to save
£890k and 6 performance concerns with a £153k saving opportunity.
This means the Trust can save a total of £1,043,000 by acting immediately. The digitisation of training needs analysis allows the managers to get an easier, more intuitive experience aligned to current action plans. It also means the individuals receive a more in-depth level of support, and the time and resource spent on driving manual processes will be substantially reduced.
In addition, all data will be stored centrally and updated on a regular basis. 125 managers completed this exercise out of a possible 397. This means the Trust could save 4 times as much in a quarter – a potential cost saving of up to £4million.
