December can be an opportune time to search for new employees. Businesses know that talent management is crucial, so savvy human resource managers are planning ahead and looking for new personnel now.

Consider the following tips from Legal Zoom, a legal website that offers advice from independent attorneys:

  1. Yearly Housekeeping. Get your database and lists in shape. Update contact information. Delete or archive vendors you don’t use anymore. This yearly housekeeping will help keep your lists organized and ready for the coming year
  2. Update employee information. Make sure you have accurate contact information for your employees and that you have properly accounted for employee benefits.
  3. Back up computers and mobile devices. If you use cloud-based software, you may think you’re covered. But experts caution against relying on just one backup method—even if it’s a well-known cloud service. They recommend backing everything up on two digital platforms, in two locations, plus having one copy in print or on a local server or hard drive.

The end of the year is a great time clean up for a fresh start in the new year. Utilize temp staff or outsource to consultants to take some ongoing organizing and purging tasks off your plate.

There are only a few weeks left until January 1, 2019, but you still have time to hire someone to help finish your end of year projects and plan for the new year’s staffing needs.

We would love to help you find someone to help you today!
