4.3. Staffing Programs
The workforce plan and staffing needs analysis have identified the jobs to be filled, when they are needed, where they are located, and the KSAs and competencies needed for successful performance. The job descriptions and specifications for successfully recruiting qualified candidates are in place. A review of internal demographics indicates if past recruiting efforts have resulted in a diverse workforce or whether it is necessary to explore alternative ways to promote diversity within the organization. Armed with this information, the process of finding qualified candidates for open positions can begin. The question now becomes where to find the appropriate people to fill the gaps.
