Staffing in Today's World
Organizations have to continually improve their practices in order to be competitive. When the time comes to improve the efficiency of an organization, we often think of working on the means of production, developing new, more modern infrastructures, or even reviewing the operational processes. We tend to forget that the strength of an organization resides in its people and that a new acquisition will have a significant impact. It is the same situation when a new player is drafted by a professional sports team. This team should select a player who has the skills the team needs and who also has a game style that is compatible with the team’s style.
The labour market has changed significantly in comparison to that of past generations, and staffing processes must inevitably adapt. Competition amongst companies to find the best talent is becoming increasingly fierce, challenging the ability of organizations to attract, train and retain this rare gem. Accordingly, it is the investment in the organizational capacity that will determine future success for companies.
