Resources for Developing an Effective Workforce

The Workforce Planning Portal is a website designed to help individuals in a variety of organizations improve their workforce. It provides hands-on tools, as well as strategies and solutions, for human services agencies looking for solutions for short- and long-term workforce challenges. The site's resources are organized around the Workforce Planning model in five stages:

  • Strategy—strategy assessment
  • Data collection—environmental scans and assessments
  • Data analysis—gap analysis
  • Implementation—gap-closing strategies
  • Evaluation—review and assessment

The portal was developed by Cornerstones for Kids as part of their Human Services Workforce Initiative. This initiative is based on the belief that there is a direct correlation between the quality of the human services frontline worker and the effectiveness of services these workers deliver to children and families.

The portal can be found on the Cornerstones for Kids website:
