Linking to the strategic plans, competencies and behaviours will need to be defined along with job descriptions which will include Key Result Areas and Measures. The numbers of jobs and people required will be planned. The benefits flowing from this will be that people will be focussed on the right results and behaviours required for the business and will therefore be more productive. There will be cost savings by not recruiting the wrong people and a greater return on investment in people if a long term approach is taken.
Are your people clear on what is expected of them and how it is measured?
Do you clearly define a vacant role; and the competencies and behaviours required before you go out to market and start searching or hiring?
