For many companies, hiring seasonal workers is a critical part of running a successful business. Although the timing of peak seasons may vary based on industry or economic factors, the importance of having enough staff to meet your needs during these times remains the same.
When developing a staffing plan for your seasonal hiring demands, you’ll want to determine how your peak fits into the rest of the year by considering:
What time of year does it occur?
How long does the peak last?
How much of an increase in staff do you expect to see when compared to your standard operation?
What has been done in previous years?
What are your goals for this year?
