For Your Success

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development revealed some interesting findings recently from its survey of senior managers. Its research found that despite a tough economic climate and ongoing uncertainty in the economy, 31% of employers expect their staff numbers to grow this quarter.
While many businesses may be looking to add new staff to their workforce to fill skills gaps, businesses should also assess existing skill sets and capacity before engaging more employees. This is particularly important as salaried staff account for one of the biggest expenditures for most firms.
Having a complete overview of existing capacity levels across the business as well as the skills available means that businesses are in a much stronger position to ensure that they have the right type and number of employees for the company. Additionally, this insight also allows businesses to balance workloads across the company. If businesses do not have this insight, they may find that profitability is impacted upon and some employees are overworked leaving others with too little to do.
