Developing a Hiring Plan | PrideStaff Las Vegas

There’s a lot of talented people searching for job opportunities in Las Vegas right now, and you’re ready to capitalize on that. Now that the new year has — finally — arrived, you’re excited to get to work expanding your team.

You know you want your company to achieve big things this year, and hiring the right people is the most important part of that. Here’s some advice to help you map out your hiring needs and get to work building the best team you’ve ever had.

Four Tips to Prepare a Robust 2021 Hiring Plan

Set SMART Goals for the Year

No doubt about it, your company is going to achieve big things in 2021. The question is, what specifically do you want to happen? Setting SMART — specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound — objectives will allow you to narrow your plans down, so you can start focusing on your hiring needs.

Conduct a Skills Gap Analysis

Your team is great, but it’s possible they don’t have all the abilities needed to achieve the goals you’ve set for 2021. Therefore, performing a skills audit is a must, so you know what abilities to seek in new employees. This is a must because, without the necessary talent, your company will not be able to achieve its objectives.

Assess Your Financial Situation

Expanding your team doesn’t come cheap, so create a hiring budget to determine the number of employees you can afford to hire — use the Bureau of Labor Statistics to find industry-standard salaries for the positions in your local area. You might also consider working with a staffing agency to hire on a temporary or temp-to-hire basis. This option offers more flexibility, as the economy is currently unstable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Create a Recruiting Strategy

Bringing new employees on board is a big deal, so decide how you’ll proceed with hiring activities. This can include where you’ll post jobs, who will participate in interviews and when hiring will take place. Or, if you opt to join forces with a staffing firm, they’ll work with you to figure out a plan that meets your needs.
