Strategic staffing is an ongoing process. And you’re so busy each day that you may find yourself filling positions on a “must-have” basis, rather than stepping back to evaluate whether or not your company’s true hiring needs are being met. It happens to the best of HR pros.

If you miscalculate staffing, you run the risk of poor customer service, the inability to generate repeat business, wasted resources, and high employee turnover. Like your business itself, staffing needs constantly evolve. What worked five years – or even one year – ago may no longer apply. How can you keep your talent management strategy on track and up to date?

Take a bird’s eye view of your current hiring situation. It should tie in directly with your company’s overall strategic plan. Does that plan predict growth in the years ahead, or downsizing? Are there seasonal fluctuations that will merit temporary versus full-time staffing? These are among the key questions to be addressed.
