Lines of Thinking to Use When Making Staffing Decisions for a Publishing Company

January 31, 2014

As the person charged with making staffing decisions for a publishing company, you will find yourself having to make certain hard decisions. One of those is the decision on the number of people to employ, and what to pay them. We venture to look at some of the key lines of thinking to use when making staffing decisions in that regard.

One good line of thinking to use when making staffing decisions for a publishing company would be the one where you opt to employ just a few, but very well paid people.

Another line of thinking you can use, when making staffing decisions for a publishing company, would be the one where you opt to employ many, but relatively ill paid people. The understanding here would be that the many people can do much more work than that which could be done by a few very highly paid people. Still, you need to avoid a situation where the workers are so badly paid that they have to depend on welfare from the state for things like food and child care.

Yet another line of thinking you can use, when making staffing decisions for a publishing company, would be the one where you opt to employ reasonable numbers of people (neither too many nor too few), paid reasonable salaries (neither too low nor too high).
