Workforce Planning Community and Events

We want state departments to have plenty of opportunities to discuss Workforce Planning. This can help Workforce Planners share their strategies and best practices. We have several ways for Workforce Planners to connect with one another.


We schedule two kinds of events. Below, you can find a description of the events we host, as well as a calendar.​


Our forums are the main events we host quarterly throughout the year. Here's what to expect if you attend:

  • Updates from CalHR Statewide Workforce Planning

  • Updates from other teams in CalHR

  • A featured speaker and topic related to Workforce Planning

  • Reports from Workforce Planning Workgroups

  • Networking breakout rooms

​​​​​Coffee Chats

Our coffee chats are an informal opportunity to connect with our team and other Workforce Planners quarterly. Each coffee chat has a featured topic and opportunity for questions and answers. ​​

Join us at our next Event!​
