As we look ahead to 2023, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for staffing and hiring. Do you currently have the staff you need to complete the work? Do you have the right team members in the right roles? Do you have great leaders? Do you foresee scaling up or down in 2023? Here are some tips on developing your staffing plan for the new year to ensure you have the right team.
Determine Your Goals
The first step in creating a staffing plan is determining your long-term goals. What roles do you see yourself adding this year? What is your plan for potential turnover? How do you want to handle retention in the coming year? Do you need to add any HR services or processes to help augment your experience?
Review Talent Availability
Next, do an audit of your staff and talent. Do you have the right people in the right places? Where can you find people with the skills you need when you’re ready to add employees? How do you plan to upskill and develop your current talent? There isn’t always a clear path to finding talent, so it’s helpful to have a process in place.
Conduct a Skills Gap Analysis
When you look at your current talent, the potential pool of candidates, and where they fit into your business, it’s essential to do a skills gap analysis. This will tell you if there are places in your organization in need of additional skills. Whether you hire new employees or provide training will be the next thing to determine.
Establish a Staffing Partnership
It pays to have a partnership with a staffing provider throughout all of this. They have access to resources that can help you stay up to current skills. They can provide temporary employees when your production needs to ramp up, help with replacement candidates when someone leaves the organization, reduce time-to-hire, and lower your staffing costs.
