Start Prepping for The Holiday Rush Now

Yes, September is here – and with it comes preparation for the holiday rush. No matter what type of business you own, there’s always increased traffic and strain due to employees being out of town, holiday obligations, and more. Now is the time to prepare and save yourself some stress later.

Determine Your Needs.

First and foremost, you need to make your best estimate concerning staffing needs for the holidays. For some companies, the holidays equate to increased staffing to cover absent employees. For others, there is also a need for extra staffing to cover increases in production. For some, it’s both. Make sure you know your exact needs so that it’s easy to ask for help.

Develop a Training Plan.

Often, the holidays can be such a rush that employee training falls by the wayside, which is not good for new hires or your company. Try to develop a training plan before you fall into the holiday rush, so you make enough time to sufficiently train your new hires before they come on board.
