7.1 Personnel Plan

Given the small business nature of Hart Fraeme Gallery, this personnel plan is intended serve as a guide to staffing, although staffing decisions must ultimately be based on business need. 

Hart Fraeme Gallery's personnel plan can be summarized as follows:

  • Mr. Fraeme will serve as manager, and will oversee daily operations as well as fill in to meet work needs.
  • One assistant manager who will act as both key holder and peer supervisor, although the assistant manager will perform many of the same duties as a sales and design associate.
  • One full-time sales and design associate who will be primarily responsible for assisting customers with questions and purchases, including custom frame design.

In the first year, Hart Fraeme Gallery assumes that it will initially employ two sales and design associates, one of whom will be appointed as an assistant manager by January of 2006. During the 2006-2007 holiday season, it is expected that an additional sales and design associate will be hired to help with the increase in business, with continuing employment to be determined by staffing demands.
