Staff Planning

How do you plan future staffing requirements?

Staffing requirements for small businesses tend to be based around the following:

  • Sales forecasts - from this future production levels can be predicted.
  • Looking at the amount and type of work to be undertaken.

Predicted staffing levels will ultimately stem from the long-term forecast of the business and the increase in working capacity that this will require. Staffing costs can then be worked out and budgets planned from this. You will need to look at staffing requirements in the short, medium and long-term.
