When planning for growth, one thing that will often weigh on a business owners mind is the question, “When is the right time to recruit new staff?” Do you wait until you land that big new contract and then look for the staff you need? Or, do you take the risk and take on the staff first, so when new contracts come you can cope with the upturn in business? It can be a tough choice to make especially when you need to balance factors like cash flow, training, productivity and the consistent quality of output. However, there are some things to consider which might make that decision clearer. Here are five questions to ask yourself to help determine whether or not you should be recruiting new staff. Are the skills you need for business growth being met? If you find in your business there is a gap in a particular skillset – for example, the need for specialised management expertise or digital marketing knowledge – it might be time to recruit to give you the competitive edge. Recruiting someone with specialised knowledge and experience in that missing area will fill the gap and expand the scope of delivery your business is able to offer to clients.
We are pleased to say that our March networking hub was very well attended and that the talk from Neil Batt & Katie Powers from Tewkesbury Borough Council was very well received. They spoke about grants available to businesses within the locality and have offered to come back to speak again on the subject if there is sufficient demand.
