Personnel Headcount Budget Report for Dynamics 365 Business Central
What is a Personnel Headcount Budget Report?
A Personnel Headcount Budget Report serves as a workforce planning tool utilized by budget managers and department heads to anticipate the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) staff members required in the upcoming year. This report incorporates an essential feature by seamlessly integrating with the payroll budget, thereby automatically determining the monthly headcount for each department. By expanding the rows, one can view a comprehensive breakdown of employees by department. The report concludes with a summary of the total filled and open positions, along with the overall headcount. An example of this type of personnel budget report is provided below.

By integrating these reports into the Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) and HR departments as part of effective business practices, organizations can enhance their management of workforce-related expenses while mitigating the risk of inadequate staffing levels aligning with the business plans for the upcoming year.
Benefits to Users
