Carefully analyse the workload and productivity of your team to assess if they can efficiently handle the existing projects and responsibilities, understanding their current capacity, you can identify any gaps that need to be filled through expansion.

Review employees' track records in delivering successful projects, their ability to collaborate within the team, and their overall work ethic. Seek feedback from project managers and team leads to gain insights into individual strengths and areas for improvement. Furthermore, examine the team dynamics and identify any interpersonal issues or conflicts that may impact productivity and morale.

By evaluating your current workforce comprehensively, you can gather valuable information to guide your tech workforce expansion for the upcoming financial year.
