Strategic Staffing: Preparing for Your Future Staffing Needs

November 14th, 2014

Some of your staffing needs are as clear and predictable as the changing of the seasons. Based on years of experience, you may know exactly how many new pairs of hands you’ll need to hire during your upcoming busy cycle. And you may know exactly how many new staff members you’ll need when your company’s new facility opens for business in 2015.

But not all of your staffing needs are so predictable, and when it comes to unexpected events, no crystal ball can show you the future of your industry and its dynamic and constantly changing marketplace.  You may be expecting two retirements on your team next year. But what if two becomes five? And what if replacements aren’t as easy to find as you anticipate?

To prepare for the unexpected, you’ll need a long term plan…and you’ll need the help and guidance of an experienced staffing firm. Here’s why.

Strategic Staffing Means Flexibility

When you take on a full time employee, you make a long term commitment. If your candidate doesn’t work out or leaves before the year is over, you may have a very expensive problem on your hands. But with a staffing firm at your side, this doesn’t have to happen. The team at Merritt can pair you with an appropriate candidate, and the two of you can get to know each other for long “test drive” before you decide to take the next step.

Strategic Staffing Means Minimal Hassle

While your employee is engaged in the probationary period, she’ll be employed by the staffing firm, not by you. So you won’t have to worry about taxes, insurance, and other paperwork. Leave that to us.

Strategic Staffing Means Minimal Risk

Before we pair you with a list of likely candidates, we listen carefully to your needs. Then we reach out to our extensive network and find exactly the kinds of candidates you’re looking for. Our proven screening and review methods reduce the possibility of a mismatch, and we can also conduct testing and background checks depending on your needs.
