Are you prepared for job vacancies?
Nearly 1 in 3 U.S. workers plan to leave their job in the next six months according to WorkplaceTrends.com. That can leave a substantial hole in your workforce should it manifest. Are you prepared? Unemployment rates are at a low in Texas so finding the right candidate may be difficult. Here are some helpful tips to position your company in the event of several job vacancies.
First, cross train your staff so a team atmosphere is promoted. This allows for another worker to step in while your recruiting with little down-time.
Second, promote from within. Seasoned employees often make the best candidates for you.
Next, (you got it) hire a temp. Trying a worker out as a temp is an easy way to take a “test drive” of their skills and work ethic.
Lastly, build a strong retention plan to keep employees from leaving. Assessing the job market from time to time can give you a good pulse on your community.
