How Can OneSource Help You Stay Ahead of Staffing Shortages?

Focus on professional development.

When you have people who are trained across departments and encouraged to acquire skills outside their job title, it gives you a pipeline of resources. This will help you to cultivate a strong pool of talent when you do need to fill a new opportunity and also make your employer brand more attractive to candidates.

So, offer your employees opportunities to learn new roles, shadow others, and grow in stretch assignments. Also, promote from within to showcase that you are invested in your people and their career goals.

Keep work-life balance in mind.

When you are dealing with a staffing shortage, it’s tempting to put even more work on everyone’s plates. However, this is not a good long-term solution. Burnout can lead your best employees to start handing in sub-par work.

Avoid this altogether by making work-life balance a priority at your company. Give your employees options for working on a remote basis, or following a flexible or four-day workweek schedule. This will enable your staff to get the job done in the way that works best for their life.

Build a healthy culture.

During a staffing shortage, you might not want to invest in perks and benefits. However, doing so is essential to building a strong culture, one that attracts and retains the best people. Make sure your employees are noticed for their had work. Give your team an extra vacation day for a job well done. Or enhance benefits packages with child-care or tuition reimbursements. Whatever you do, strive to make your business a place where people want to work.

Ultimately, when you have a healthy workplace culture and strong employer brand, more candidates will want to work for your company. You’ll be able to attract the best people and retain your superstars.
