Any business strategy that fails to identify and address staffing implications is a strategy that cannot be implemented. In this comprehensive book and CD-ROM package, you'll get everything you need to develop strategies for eliminating staffing gaps and surpluses and making sure your organization has teh people it needs, when it needs them.
This innovative book is packed with examples, case studies, and step-by-step instructions for implementing a workforce planning process. The text and accompanying CD-ROM include such tools as:
Whether you're assessing the staffing system your organization already has in place or designing a new one from the ground up, Strategic Staffing gives you the resources to develop, implement, and support a viable, results-oriented process and ensure that your organization is staffed and ready to meet any challenges that arises.
This is supposed to make staffing practical and strategical, but it fails, as it is very short on details (which in the authors opinion makes it strategical) and doesn't really provide the practical toolkit the back-cover promises.
It is OK as an introductionary text to HR, but it is a close call.
