Anticipating Staffing Shortages: Do You Have a Plan In Place? (Guest: Michele Vincent)

Episode 1.25: When a crisis event happens, such as a labor strike - or an unanticipated pandemic - your organization may face a sudden worker shortage. As a leader, you can ensure that your business will remain productive, even when your staff is no longer in place by taking the time to put together a Contingency Staffing Plan. On this episode of ProjectHR, Michele Vincent from MADI shares with us:

  • The kinds of temporary work disruptions that should be covered by contingency plans;
  • The benefits of building a corporate contingency staffing plan;
  • The four critical steps involved in building a plan; and
  • The difference between a regular staffing agency and one focusing on the contingent worker!
