STEP TWO: DATA COLLECTION
Collecting data is the second step in the Workforce Planning process.
An Environmental Scan can be commonly defined as:
an analysis and evaluation of internal conditions and external data and factors that affect the organization.
In workforce planning, environmental scanning helps an agency develop the understanding of the internal and external environment needed to determine whether the business needs of the agency are in sync with the availability and competency of the workforce.
