Drafting a Staffing Plan for Your OrganizationBy: Mary PeabodyYour organization may never have all the money or time it needs to fully realize its mission, but thatdoes not stop you from trying. Likewise, the fact that you do not have all the resources that you need inhand should not stop you from having a staffing plan in place. What happens when we can’t affordall these positions?

UVM Extension’s Building Capacity Project: Drafting a Staffing Planwho is in charge of communications. If youneed to raise money to operate, then youmay need a fundraiser. If your organizationrelies on volunteers, then a volunteermanager should be part of your staff.Developing your staffing plan is not an exactscience and there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’way to approach it. Like most planning, it isnever fully finalized and you should revisityour staffing plan on a regular basis.Circumstances will change over time andthose changes may impact your staffingneeds.The table on the following page is for you to begin identifying your staffing needs and how they arecurrently being met. Function should include any task category that is necessary to your organization’s operations.Hours/week should include an approximate range of the hours that task requires. You may wishto include a range for some tasks. If a task is specific to a certain time of the year, then make anote of the number of hours over what period of time.Primary person refers to who most often is responsible for this task.Importance of task details whether the task is critical to meeting the mission (C)-these are the tasks which the organization exists to do; (OS)-Organization Support includes tasks that must be done in order for theorganization to function (accounting, grant writing, fund-raising, etc.); (I)-Important includes other types of tasks not covered in the other categories.If there are tasks that do not belong in any of these categories, just leave them blank for now, you canrevisit them in later drafts. Estimated cost is the actual cost to the organization of having that activitydone. This includes salary/benefits but may also include office equipment, internet access, telephoneexpenses, etc.Issued in furtherance of Cooperative Extension work, Acts of May 8 and June 30, 1914, in cooperation with the United States Department ofAgriculture.

UVM Extension’s Building Capacity Project: Drafting a Staffing PlanThe Next Step:Working from the chart on the previous page, you can now begin to identify where certainfunctions might be combined with other functions to create a position, by using the chart onthe previous page. Do this carefully however, since there are skill sets and functions that do notusually combine easily. For example, a web designer usually has a specific set of skills thatmight not combine well with say, bookkeeping. On the other hand, a communications personmight make a great volunteer coordinator.You should also be able to identify where you need staff vs. where you might be able to useindependent contractors. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has some strict guidelines in thismatter so we suggest that you first review Publication 15-A Employer’s Supplemental Tax Guideat: http://www/irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p15a.pdf for more information before making finaldecisions. As a general rule of thumb, if hours are less than 10/week and the skills required arenot a direct fit with the mission and/or require specialized training, then contracting for thoseservices is probably a good choice(provided you have reviewed the IRS guidelines and there isno reason to believe that work should be considered employment).Related Resources:The following resources are related to hiring, training and evaluating your organization’semployees.
