    for part timers.  Working in the health care field, we are seeing a lot more 28 hour hires.  We are not seeing more full time jobs.

    Stupid question hour starts now and ends in five minutes.

      Staffing is a function of several different components, the business plan, the feasibility analysis, the marketing analysis, the catchment, the space plan, identifying the funding and efficiency.

      Both part time workers and overtime workers are less efficient, more difficult to schedule, less reliable, somewhat undependable. A good business plan anticipates keeping employees as fully employed as possible through cycles of growth because it reduces unknowns and unknowns are seen as risk.

      If the marketing analysis shows that the catchment is not being fully appreciated there is risk in that as well due to providing an available niche for the company's competition to expand into.

      The catchment grows like the economy in response to population pressures; the ability to take full advantage of it is constrained both by the feasibility analysis and the space plan as well as the results of identifying potential funding and efficiency.

      No corporate entity can afford to view its employees as anything other than its most important asset, its means of production and in effect the difference between its profit and loss. Investing in good employees, happy in their jobs, healthy people that don't have financial difficulties causing them stress are the equivalent of obtaining a corner on the market.

      People potentially funding the operation are going to take the strength of a corporations human resources into account the same as they would its infrastructure, location, equipment, efficiency and business plan.
