When you decide to start a new business venture there’s usually a fair amount of planning involved and a whole host of things to think about. There’s market research, customers/audience/competitors, processes, premises/location, marketing/branding, structure and of course funding to name just a few and then there’s staffing, now that’s a biggy, but why?
Post Covid-19, the world is a different place, peoples hopes, aspirations and dreams have changed, and then there’s Generation-Z, the next generation of workers who on the whole want something different to what’s been on offer in the past.
So what does this mean for your future business? Well essentially, recruitment has just become trickier. The pool of available skilled labour has tightened and there’s fierce competition for good people. This means just being average or offering basic employment just won’t cut it. I’m not saying you won’t get applicants for your jobs, but will you get a quality of employees you need to drive forward a successful business?
Building strong foundations:
When a business flourishes, it’s usually because the product or service is marketed well, desirable or in demand, customer service is great and there’s a good team of people behind it, all motivated and pulling in the same direction. So, it makes sense to give the ‘people’ element of your business the highest priority.
