Strategic Workforce Planning
Team Building, Performance Management, Staff Training
What happens when you lose a staff member who is critical to your operations? How important is it to have well trained staff who understand your business and what it does?
Possibly one of the biggest and most important plans that a small business can implement is the strategic workforce plan. With an ageing population and the current trend for workers to change jobs frequently it is more critical than ever to plan for the retirement or loss of instrumental personnel.
A strategic workforce plan allows for the seamless continuation to the delivery of products and services when skilled employees retire or leave, or when the business is expanding. By implementing such a plan it is made possible for middle and junior staff members to move up the organisational hierarchy to fill essential roles without the loss of knowledge or skills.
The strategic workforce plan also allows management to develop accurate job descriptions and position criteria, thus making the recruitment process more concise and the selection process when hiring less time consuming. It also identifies skill shortages in the market making decisions easier when planning apprenticeships, traineeships and staff training. You can contact me through www.smallassist.com.au.
