What Are Your Business’s Hiring Needs For 2019?

January 16th, 2019

Oftentimes a company’s hiring plan revolves around filling positions as they open. It seems like you’re meeting hiring needs, but you might be over- or understaffing, depending on your organization. To avoid situations like this, it’s important to fully understand your hiring needs.


Perhaps you’ve hired great talent in the past because you didn’t want to lose them or left a position open to help with the budget. When you aren’t taking the time to analyze your hiring needs, these issues can happen leading to more problems down the line. Instead of assuming everything is working, check out this list to determine your actual business hiring needs for 2019.


Start by evaluating your workforce

Sometimes an employee may leave, and you have to replace them, but if you understand your team’s skills, you might have the people in place already who can assist. Take time to learn about what everyone does in their positions and what skills they possess. Keep an accurate and up-to-date list so when someone leaves, you can make an informed decision about your next steps.


Keep everything up to date

The time to update a job description shouldn’t come after a position opens. You want to keep up with all the descriptions, requirements and salaries, so you always know what your company needs and what it pays.


Create succession plans

Instead of always looking to the outside, work with employees to develop plans to move them into promotions. This way you’re developing the talent you have and bringing in new employees as entry level.


Determine both short- and long-term needs

Every project doesn’t require permanent employees, so make sure you’re aware of when you’ll need extra help and for how long. This way you’re getting the assistance you need to succeed without bringing hires who will stay after the project finishes.


Partner with a staffing agency

When you know you’re looking for more flexibility in your hiring and you want to keep your pipeline ready, consider partnering an employment agency. They can supply the talent you need when you need them and save you the headache of the hiring process.
