You are the senior human resource professional in a company and part of the senior strategic management team. The company is a service company that operates five teleprofit centers of 300 representatives each in the following Florida cities: Jacksonville, Orlando, Gainesville, Tampa, and Miami. The CEO has asked the senior strategic team to develop a HR plan that will allow the company to grow by two more teleprofit centers, which will be located in Jacksonville, Florida. Considering turnover, length of training, hiring success and learning curve for new employees-develop a reasonable “hire ahead” plan, which keeps newly trained employees ready to take the place of employees who leave or are promoted to other positions. The “hire ahead” plan must allow no more than 3% of the employee base in each of the new teleprofit centers to consist of newly trained employees.
