BEST Workforce Planning & Development

Workforce Planning

All companies strive to increase efficiency to get the most out of each person, place, and equipment they use. But as a wise man once said, “You don’t plan to fail. You fail to plan.” Unfortunately, effective Workforce Planning tends to be the Achilles heel for businesses of all sizes.

If your organization tries to embody that entrepreneurial spirit, you may describe your company culture as highly flexible, “shoot-from-the-hip,” or “work-hard-play-hard.” However, proper workforce planning does not have to take away from these critical cultural elements that make your company a great and fun place to work and grow. 

Just-in-time inventory may work wonders for material inputs and product outputs, but not so much for human capital resources.

Understanding where you are and where you want to go, along with an operational and tactical plan aligned with your overall strategic plan, allows you to thoughtfully lay out the steps to achieve your growth in a measured and sustainable manner, to obtain and retain market share.

BEST Workforce Planning & Development can assist you with these critical elements and more:

Your Recruiting Process

As people are a company’s most valuable asset, beginning to close that gap with a compliant and effective recruitment process is the most critical place to start. BEST’s recruiting model is excellent for Senior Level Management positions. For individual contributors and other roles within an organization, BEST builds out a compliant process that fits your company’s growth strategy and corporate culture. Our proven consultative approach identifies the pain points within the organization and develops solutions that drive results.

Your Onboard Planning

BEST provides personalized strategies, dynamic schedules, and regular update meetings to bring your new hires up to high productivity levels and strengthen culture. Businesses should make sure that new hires feel welcomed, valued, and prepared for what lies ahead, as this correlates directly to engagement levels and retention rates.

Your Employee Retention

Your employees are valuable, and turnover is expensive. More often than not, people don’t leave companies; they leave poor managers. Up to 80% of employee turnover is caused by ineffective or hostile management. BEST implements creative strategies from the onboarding stage up to 20+ year veterans retaining employees based on the organization’s strong points.
