Human Resource Planning

We are reaching the end of 2017, and it is that time of year when we all can’t believe the year has passed so quickly. Furthermore, With Christmas just around the corner, many SMEs will be looking ahead to plan for another year. Have you put human resource planning in place for 2018?

For a lot of businesses this month is just as busy as every month. In addition, taking time to reflect is something that all successful businesses should always work on.

We want to share some useful Human Resource planning related topics to consider for 2018.

Write a list of your focuses for next year

Based on what you’ve discovered from reflecting on last year, you will most likely start to notice aspects of your business that you would like to improve on.

We encourage all of our clients to make a list of their main focuses for the year ahead. What do you need to focus on? What human resource planning do you have in place for 2018?

Plan your resources for the year ahead

Once you have a clearer idea of what you’re going to be focusing on over the next year, it’s worth considering getting some tools in place.

In addition,Make sure you’ve allocated enough resources (staff and money) to accomplish your company’s goals.

Review your website and online marketing

Does your website and social platforms clearly represent you as a company? It is also important that you take a look at your website, social media channels and other methods of marketing. This is important to make sure they are designed to attract and educate your ideal customer. Is your branding and content consistent? Are you engaging with the correct audience?

With the growing importance of an online presence, it is important you are representing your business effectively throughout your platforms. This is something you can consider when planning for the following year.

Communicate your goals with your staff

Once you have had the chance to consider your goals for 2018, it is good practise to share them with your staff.

A small business update before the end of the year is a good way to share these goals. This is a great way to involve your staff. We regularly do this at The Hr Booth and we find this very effective. This gave us the opportunity to see a lot of good practise with our clients who do the same. You can either do this at the end of the year or start of the new year.
