In the last several years Matchmaker has grown beyond the family organization it originally started as. In three months Matchmaker will be moving to a new facility and needs to hire 28 new full time employees to join the 18 already on staff.

Develop a staffing plan for the organization. Determine how many people you need to hire and in what functional areas (operations, customer service, distribution, marketing, finance/ accounting). Develop strategies to recruit the appropriate applicants. Use the reading assignments, interviews with your HR representatives or staff persons, Web site articles, Electronic Reserve Reading (ERR) articles, and HR journal articles to support your position. Use at least two text references.

I am suppose to use information from the attached text to site. Matchmaker is the company I work for. We have no set training in place and we are growing. We went from 6 employees to 18 in just under three months. As the business continues to expand I would like to be able to suggest a training plan.
