If you are going to take this principle seri-ously then human capital planning is crucial. The Human Capital Plan is an important tool that organizations use to drive focused actions that can ensure goal achievement and business success. It allows organizations to assess, plan for, and respond proactively to its human capital challenges and needs. It helps shape the organization by building a plan to develop the workforce and practices needed to meet an organization’s vision, mission, and goals.
Human capital challenges such as having capable leaders, building workforce skills, driving high per-formance, and ensuring retention of top talent can be addressed through effective human capital planning.

Employees who qualify as “exempt” are exempt from overtime regulations (and minimum wage laws), whereas “non-exempt” employees must be paid for every hour of overtime they work.

He wrote a pretty compelling article for us on Compliance For Profit: Hiring the Right Compliance Staff. There’s some great content to ensure that your staff is tip-top and optimal for your needs.
For most companies, it is easy to understand how hiring technical staff can enhance the profitability of the company. Such staff can improve customer relations, job performance and company reputations. The same can be said for hiring rainmakers, who have marketing skills and networks that increase opportunities for new work, but for indirect staff, like compliance staff, companies often see them as a burden that add little value. The reality is that indirect staff can directly affect the performance of government contracts and can enhance profitability or hurt the bottom line.
