You may have noticed when you were out shopping for Halloween that Christmas items have already infiltrated the stores! It seems like every year businesses start planning for the holidays earlier and earlier, making the festive season last longer. For any employer, seeing Christmas gift baskets amongst Halloween candy may get you thinking that 2017 is right around the corner (and it is!).
If you have a business with complex staffing needs, it may spark some interest in planning for the upcoming year. Now is a good time for looking at the growth of your company and analyze staffing levels to be the most effective in 2017. Will you need to hire more workers? Is there any new equipment or software systems that current or potential employees need to be trained on?
