Workforce Planning

How will you expand a department, increase sales, open a new location, or lead a new team without a plan in place?  Work with SmartHire® to appropriately prepare your team for change, maximize team efficiency, and fill holes with Smart Workforce Planning.

All too often, the need to hire is based on a vacancy and typically appears satisfied when an employment offer is signed.  In reality, your workforce is never truly stable.  A recent study from Indeed verifies that nearly 70% of employees in your business are continually searching for alternate opportunities.  As well, up to 90% of new hires are reviewing and considering alternate opportunities within the first 6 months of employment.

Our Workforce Planning services start with you.  Your current methods will be analysed in order to determine the direction to proceed.  We have the methods to put the Smart before your Hire to ensure repeatable, reliable, predictable results that you can depend on.  Whether you are a business owner, leading a talent acquisition team, or managing a group; the methods used to attract talent and how that talent is managed will dramatically impact success.  Hiring is a process, not an event.  When you work with SmartHire® talent acquisition will move from reactive activities to a strategic process.

Risk Assessment

While employees are your greatest asset, they can also pose significant risk.  We know that jobs change and people don’t.  By appropriately and consistently evaluating the background of those being considered for employment.  Through reference checking, credit history review, and criminal record verification your decisions will become clear and confident.  Hiring an employee with a fraudulent history or embellished performance could put your company at risk. A careful review of an applicant’s chronological history can also help protect your employees, customers and business from under-performance, embezzlement, harassment or other difficult situations.
