Strategic Staffing Plan

I am writing a staffing plan for Lowe’s. Lowe’s recently opened its new techonology hub and plans to hire 2,000 new associates. I am having trouble with the following part of the rubric stated below:

Future Staffing Needs: Using a forecasting model, determine current availabilities and future needs over a three year period for the selected organizational function. Forecast future needs as either the number of employees or percentage of growth. Justify your forecast results with data.

Gap Analysis: Perform a gap analysis to identify the shortages and surpluses between current staffing and future needs over a three-year period. Support your analysis with data, evidence and/or research.
