Justifying for a new headcount is always the hardest thing to do in any company. In fact, when a person resigns, they will start evaluating if it is necessary to have this headcount or not.
So when and how do you get a new headcount?
- First and foremost, it has to be with the company profitability to make sure that they can afford to have any new headcount.
- Secondly, when you start to see that you can only make some happy with your work while making others unhappy, it is a starting sign.
- Thirdly, when your prioritisation based on urgency and importance is not working well, you have to take a step back and see if you are doing them right.
- Fourthly, you start to notice that your temporary staff works like your permanent staff.
- Fifthly, you sound out to your boss about all of the above. (And it should end here if you have a good management.)
- Lastly, if your boss or the management is not convinced, your resignation will start telling them that they really need a new headcount.
