ABOUT ZERO-BASED BUDGETING
Zero-based budgeting for staffing is a process which builds staffing needs based on a set of expectations about future performance.
Traditional budgeting methodology begins with the prior year as a base. Zero-based budgeting starts “from nothing” so that all assumptions about staffing department are explicitly recognized.
Zero-based budgeting allows an accurate comparison between actual costs and proposed changes.
