Workforce Planning

Smahrt Solutions have proven experience in strategically aligning people with our client’s business goals. Smahrt develops and facilitates a systematic, results-oriented approach to strategic, workforce planning that results in the alignment of the mission, vision and priorities of the organization with the human resources and staffing requirements, core competencies, recruitment and retention challenges, diversity, and succession plans.

Smahrt helps organizations increase performance by ensuring our clients have the right people with the right skills in the right roles. We develop human resource strategies that support our client’s overall business and financial goals. The Smahrt approach helps ensure that all levels of the organization work together to create an innovative, talent-powered workforce, which ultimately achieves higher performance and greater profits.


Communication and Change Management

The lack of acceptance and adoption of a new technology or way of conducting business can frequently slow down or even stop a project dead in its tracks. We help organizations communicate and manage change across the organization.

The "people" side of change is critical to the success of the organization and ultimately the ongoing operations of the organization. New technologies or processes typically change the way people do their work. Smahrt’s Change Management approach includes the following:

  • Manage the people side of change, not just the business side
  • Develop a change management strategy
  • Create a communication plan
  • Manage resistance to change

Our approach is to provide clients with customized, process-oriented training. Our training consultants tailor the training to the organization and the day-to-day operations for users of the new solutions.

Staffing

At Smahrt, we focus on reducing overhead cost while delivering best in class solutions. We assist our clients in finding the right people to support their business strategy. Our staffing strategy is customized to suit the needs of each client. Whether it is staffing a project, an entire department, or a single position, we will partner with you to determine the appropriate skills required to successfully achieve your goals. We will then search for and find the right candidate to fill the position.

We offer several channels to provide staff for your organization.

Project Staffing - Managing and working on complex, high-stakes projects with critical deadlines and tight resources requires experienced project management professionals. Our business model allows us to align and approach each project in accordance with our clients’ requirements. Finding highly skilled and trained resources to complete a specific task for a specified time period, can be difficult. Smahrt provides organizations with a turnkey staffing solution for special projects. Whether you outsource the task to us, or we simply find the resources, we can provide the resources you need to get your project completed on time and within budget.

Contigent/Temporary Hire – Utilizing hourly contingent workers can be a quick and cost-effective alternative to hiring direct hires. Our team of experienced industry professionals will recruit, screen and administratively manage these employees throughout the duration of their assignment with your organization. By partnering with Smahrt, you gain access to top-notch resources ready to make an immediate impact on your organization, while maintaining the flexibility required to respond to fluctuating market conditions.

Contract to Hire - Whether you need additional time to fully observe and screen a candidate before hiring them on a direct basis or simply want to convert a high-performing contingent worker to a full-time employee, Smahrt’s contract-to-hire staffing services can help. Combining the flexibility of pure contingent staffing with direct placement, this service allows our clients to hire qualified contingent workers on a direct basis at any time during their assignment.

Direct Hire - Each day, small and large companies lose thousands of dollars as they underestimate the costs of employee recruitment and employee turnover – not to mention the time consumed in the process. Direct hire decisions are too important to be taken lightly in today's competitive business environment.



By precisely matching each candidate’s skills and career goals with your unique needs and culture, Smahrt delivers a responsive, cost-effective method for the acquisition of direct hire employees.
