Remote NT intermediaries: community workforce plan

The Community Workplace Planning Guide (2.3 mb) consists of tools and resources to assist service providers to overcome workforce challenges in remote Indigenous communities.

Planning steps

There are seven steps in the Community Workplace Planning Guide (2.3 mb), each including tools to support the planning process.

1. Community context

To create a successful workplace plan, you must understand the community, its issues and its needs.

2. Workforce research

Analyse workforce supply and demand to identify skills in the community and the job opportunities that are available.

3. Identifying future needs

Forecast future opportunities and challenges for your business and the industry in which you operate.

4. Issues analysis

Analyse all of the data you’ve collected so far to identify issues that require consideration in the plan.

5. Developing workforce strategies/actions 

Develop a workforce action plan that responds to the issues that have been identified in the analysis.

6. Implementing the strategies/actions 

Engage the appropriate individuals and/or organisations and work toward achieving identified actions and outcomes.

7. Monitoring, reviewing and evaluation

Monitor the strategies and actions and make modifications that respond to changing workforce circumstances.

Planning templates
