In your business plan set a strategy statement with a Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) to become an Employer of Choice.  Then identify 3 – 4 ways you know now how you can drive your business towards achieving that BHAG.  Then build action plans in your business plan to implement against that strategy.

Do that and great employees will be lining up to join your organization before you have even posted a position to be filled!
