Why You Need a Staffing Plan Before Year End

October 16, 2013

Many organizations are starting to approach end-of-year initiatives – and the clock is ticking to secure resources for these projects. There continues to be an unprecedented level of demand for top talent among organizations during this time and it’s only expected to get more competitive as your organization inches closer to year-end.


As explained in the video above, with 2014 quickly approaching, it’s important to start thinking about the resources you need for year-end projects and initiatives now.

Consider the following:


  • With many people going on vacation for holidays, there might not be enough time to make final hiring decisions in November and December.
  • In some cases, employers may face budget issues towards the end of the year, leaving your organization behind if you don’t have the time or resources to supplement that staff.
  • Many industries have similar end-of year demands and oftentimes require the same talent to complete these projects – the organization that acts first to secure resources is typically the one that gets the top talent for its project first.


A staffing firm can help your organization meet year-end project demands and prepare for 2014 hiring needs ahead of time by quickly identifying, securing and on-boarding staff you need. A staffing firm also offers:


  • Relationships with in-demand talent – A staffing firm typically stays connected to top professionals and also leverages job boards so you don’t have to spend time posting jobs on your own or shuffling through resumes to find the candidate that is the right fit.

  • A “try before you buy” model – Many times temporary staff can begin work almost immediately. You can then evaluate their skills and see how well they fit into the company’s culture before making a final hiring decision to keep them on staff longer or hire them full-time.

  • Benefits- Staffing firms, such as Kforce, offer consultants access to various healthcare and 401(k) benefits.


Don’t wait until the end of November or beginning of December to fill roles – start thinking now about projects that should be complete by the end of the year and what types of staff you’ll need to meet those goals.


Contact Kforce to learn more about utilizing temporary staff for your organization’s end of year initiatives.
