The first step from the workforce planning model is business context and environment. This stage revolves around identifying the important goals and the objectives of ASDA. For example, one of the objectives of ASDA is to become the retail that has best value and always exceeds their customers’ needs without any issues. By having a goal it would make it easier for ASDA to accomplish their mission within their target. This stage will make ASDA focus on how their business is going so far and where it is heading to such as: is their business expanding more, presenting new technology and etc. This helps to make ASDA measure their success effectively. For example, ASDA is going to use Enacto TM software that would allow ASDA to easily track different equipment’s, reduce their energy usage and automatically would alert ASDA’s manager about any issues that it has detected.
