As a small business, you’re likely to find yourself needing extra heads as your business grows. That’s where recruitment comes in.
Recruitment is the process of finding the right person for the right role – and at the right time.
Whether it’s your first time hiring, or you already have people working for your business, it’s important you make sure the person you’re taking on are right for the role. You’ll want to ensure they align with your organisational vision and goals.
The Recruitment Process Covers the Whole Hiring Process – from Identifying a Need to Hire all the Way Through to Offering Someone a Job.
Here are 5 key things to watch out for:
The signs that you need to hire someone new can often be quite clear to see.
If you don’t have enough people to meet the workload demand, your people may be overworked, overwhelmed & burnt out.
If your team is spread too thin, you may find that your customer service is slipping, leading to negative reviews and your reputation declining.
Need someone with specific skills? As your business grows, you may find you need to expand your team and hire someone with experience in a particular area. For example, you may need someone to manage your office or help manage your team.
If you don’t have enough people working for you, you may find your business missing out on exciting opportunities – like a big new client, partnership or event.
If you don’t have the resource, you may find your business is struggling to grow. Taking on someone new – and finding the right person – could help your company meet its goals and achieve more.
