Strategic Staffing Summary


Strategic Staffing: A Comprehensive Model for Effective Workforce Planning by Tom Bechet

Many organizations understand the benefits of a longer-term approach to staffing: reduced turnover and hiring costs, improved efficiency and morale, and ultimately greater profits. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to strategic staffing are often more effective on paper than in the workplace. "Strategic Staffing: Second Edition" shows how to identify staffing needs and opportunities through qualitative and quantitative measures, and presents several effective, nontraditional approaches to strategic staffing. Bechet includes factors as diverse as promotions, retirements, 'decruiting' (the active management of staff out of an organization), termination, and even retention.Featuring full case studies and dozens of examples, the book is both enlightening and practical. And to help readers create their own staffing plans, the CD-ROM is a trove of invaluable tools. Integrating a strategic approach to staffing can result in reduced turnover and hiring costs, improved efficiency and morale, and ultimately greater profits. This book is a detailed, process-oriented guide that offers all the tools staffing professionals need.
