Total workforce management allows HR to be managed in a holistic manner, enabling qualitative and quantitative personnel planning over the long term. The total workforce ratio describes the relationship between all personnel expenditure and revenue. This means: if the ratio has fallen in comparison with the previous year, either revenue has remained constant while total workforce costs have gone down, or revenue has increased with stable Total Workforce Cost.
