ABSTRACT
The article explains how businesses can integrate staff planning to streamline their human resource strategy. It is opined that every plan, from the high-level to the tactical, has an impact on staffing requirements yet very few companies bother to spin off specific staffing plans that will ensure all the other plans can be implemented with maximum efficiency and minimum cost. Integrated staff planning can reduce recruiting costs by as much as 30%. Besides it can help avoid the demoralizing roller coaster ride of hiring sprees and layoffs, improve employee retention and more.
