Review Your Budget

What did your budget look like for 2015? Did you meet it or exceed it? What was your spending versus profits? This will help you make an informed decision about your budget for next year. What can you improve? What changes are essential? What is your goal for the following year?

Look at Hiring Opportunities

Who did you hire in 2015? How did this affect your organization both positively and negatively? What changes can you make for the following year? Maybe there is a superstar who should be promoted before they look for work elsewhere. Or maybe there is someone who isn’t performing at the level you expected. Now is the time to make changes.

Review the Employee Handbook

Most companies create an employee handbook and then never look at it again. However, employment law and other factor change over time so it may be critical that you review and edit as necessary. For instance, do you have information regarding the Affordable Care Act and your insurance policy?

Develop the Plan
