Back Cover Copy

The problem with most staffing plans is that they look a lot better on paper than in the real world of your business. Human resources professionals and even line managers and department heads often plot out hiring initiatives without regard for the company’s business goals.

Staffing can’t be done in a vacuum; there is no one-size-fits-all plan to magically drive business outcomes. But what if your company’s workforce planning strategy could practically guarantee greater efficiency, reduced turnover, lower staffing costs, and long-term growth?

Introducing the second edition of Tom Bechet’s Strategic Staffing, the only book that offers not just general ideas but real, quantifiable approaches for aligning your workforce plan­ning initiatives with business goals. When you build teams, departments, and divisions around organizational objectives, rather than shoehorning those objectives around the people you already have, you are truly optimizing the impact of your human resources.

Featuring eight all-new chapters and significant updates and revisions throughout, the new edition provides step-by-step instructions and powerful tools for accurately identi­fying and addressing staffing needs within the context of what your organization is trying to do. Coupled with a companion website accessible with the purchase of the book, Strategic Staffing gives you:

• Detailed, numeric diagnostic instruments that will help you develop a fully realized staffing plan

• Customizable Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations

• Dozens of clear examples, plus three full, real-world case studies of strategic staffing in action

As enlightening and inspiring as it is concrete and practical, Strategic Staffing is a powerful, process-oriented guide that takes you all the way through a workforce planning initiative custom-tailored to your company—and designed for maximum results.
