Are you planning to hire your own staff from the start? Or will you be working on your own at first? No matter what your decision is, HR planning should be discussed in your business plan. After all, it is an important point for potential investors who are trying to get an idea of both your ambitions and your financial obligations.
Think about how many employees your company will have in the early stages and as it starts to grow, and which kinds of qualifications your staff will need. If you require skilled workers, you should indicate how you are going to find them. You should also think about the salaries you’re going to pay.
The Business Portal contains additional tips for example on how to work out your staff requirements, things to watch out for as you’re hiring somebody, and the kinds of leadership qualities you’ll need. The Centre of Excellence on Securing Qualified Professionals provides plenty of tips on recruiting staff.
