Now that 2019 is coming to a close, it’s time to start looking ahead to next year. You have big plans for your company in 2020, so you need to be ready to hit the ground running in January. It’s time to set your goals and create a staffing plan that supports them, to ensure next year is your biggest yet.
Follow these three tips to determine your hiring needs for next year and find the best possible candidates to fill your open positions:
Set Goals for the New Year
Gather your team together to plan your goals for 2020. Decide which current initiatives you’d like to continue and what new directions you’d like to take. This can include anything from introducing new products and services to overhauling your back end processes to make your business run more efficiently. Accomplishing company-wide initiatives takes a lot of hard work and planning, but you’ll be off to a great start if you have your plan mapped out before January.
Create a Strategic Staffing Plan
Now that you know what you want to accomplish next year, you’ll need to create a strategic staffing plan to support these initiatives. Determine the specific skill sets required to achieve success and match them with your current staff. Any gaps will need to be filled with new hires. You’ll also want to make sure you have the necessary manpower, as you don’t want to give your existing staff more work than they can realistically handle.
Partner with a Staffing Agency
Join forces with a staffing agency to fill all of your open positions. Recruiters work hard to maintain connections with top talent who can be difficult to find. Many of these people are passive candidates only looking to change jobs for the right opportunity, so they’re not searching employment sites on a regular basis. Your recruiter can also take a look at your strategic staffing plan to help determine if you’ve covered all the bases.
